Not only do cat cafes provide a fur fix for cat lovers and a wonderfully conducive setting for
finding a new furry family member, but they’ve become great meeting places to enjoy some real
cat-centric events, too. So, if you feel like doing yoga with cats, painting a feline portrait, enjoying a fun movie with a cat on your lap and, of course, looking to meet your next BFF (best furry
friend), check out our list. And on the uber-good side, collectively these cat cafes have found
several thousand cats forever homes, and the numbers continue to grow.
