Snuggle House, we hardly knew thee. Even before The Snuggle House opened on Nov. 15, the business faced an onslaught of criticism. After 22 days of operation, The Snuggle House closed its doors for good, writing on Facebook, “The push back and harassment is not worth it, honestly.” Those words could be an epitaph of dejection on a moss-covered gravestone. But at least we know that, below that metaphorical gravestone, The Snuggle House is warm and snuggly in its coffin. I got to experience The Snuggle House firsthand before it closed. It was a strange experience, but a comforting one as well. In retrospect, for me, seeing The Snuggle House closing is like having a family member die only to realize that you got to spend one last great day with them. It’s a sad truth that, no matter what, the haters always gon’ hate. The Snuggle House learned this the hard way. Rest — and snuggle — in peace.
