Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!
My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)
I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.
So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.
When travelling it is always fun to do something that you can't do at home. And, unless you live in a big city, you probably don't have a cat cafe in your home city. Although in recent years more and more are opening up. They are a somewhat unique way to spend time drinking coffee.
Of course, it can be a little cruel for the cats - but these cat cafes all seem to care for their cats. (Please let us know if you feel otherwise, and I will remove them from this list).
This one was a bit more upmarket than the one we visited in Kraków and served whole meals (as opposed to the usual cafe snacks). The food was delicious!
The cats seemed friendly, and well looked after. Unfortunately, there are not too many tables and seats (so making a reservation would be recommended).
It is located a short walk from the main square (the main tourist hotspot). Like many cat cafes you should reserve a table, as it can get busy.
When we visited we saw a few cats, played with them and had some nice coffee and juice. It is a spacious cafe with lots of room for the cats.
If you have time while visiting Kraków, we definitely recommend you check it out!
Meow Parlour is New York City's first cat café, a place that combines sweet cats & delicious treats!
At Meow Parlour, you can:
KitTea cat cafe is San Francisco's first cat adoption cafe
They rescue cats from kill shelters, re-socialise them and try to adopt them out.
KitTea is the first cat cafe in San Francisco! We're a unique cafe experience dedicated to enriching the interactions between humans and adoptable felines in a relaxing environment. Slow down, sip on some tea, and support the welfare of cats in the community.
We provide high-quality care to our adoptable felines and work with local cat rescues, including San Francisco's Animal Care and Control, Toni's Kitty Rescue, and Wonder Cat Rescue to find every cat a forever home at each cat's own pace.
So far they have found homes for 135 cats!
Due to my complete and utter lack of speaking Spanish, I can't tell you much about this cat cafe! But it is based in Madrid!
Neko no Niwa is Singapore's first cat cafe.
It is run by a couple of cat lovers, who wanted to copy the ideas of Japanese cat cafes that they saw. They adopt cats for their cafe (as opposed to the cat cafes they saw in Japan, Korea and Bangkok where they had pedigree cats only).
Tot the Cat Cafe is a cool little cat cafe in Toronto. It has late opening hours (until 9 pm most days).
Their website is lacking many details, but it looks like they work with adopting out cats too.
Cafe Chat Siberien is a cat cafe in Quebec, Canada. It is probably no surprise given the name that they specialise in having Siberian cats (I'm not sure why they spell their name with an 'e' in Siberian! - update: see below)
They try to:
Unfortunately it doesn't seem that they adopt cats (or try to get people to adopt their cats) - but then it is probably hard to specialise in a pedigree breed and find them in cat shelters... (update: see below)
Update: The owners clarified a couple of points over Facebook :)
"We are in a French province and our English name is Siberian Cat Cafe, Siberien is Siberian in French! ;) That's true, no adoption in our café but we work closely with the SPCA (Humane society) to help them with a lot of promotional event and fundraising!
Catfe is a cat lover’s dream: a cafe serving cat-themed treats and a shop filled with crafty meowchandise —
all in the company of feline friends.
Catfe is part cafe, part foster home for cats, and a community gathering space for cat lovers of Vancouver in need of some quality kitty time. Home to a selection of eight to twelve adoptable rescue cats, we offer drinks and snacks, fun meowchandise, and space for hanging with the kitties.
Living at Catfe provides cats with a safe space where they can wander about at will, socialize with people and live normal lives, rather than being cooped up in a cage.
Denver Cat Company is a social enterprise and cat cafe located at in Denver.
Denver Cat Company features around 8 adoptable cats from partner rescues, Life Is Better, PawsCo and Adams County Shelter. They have free wi-fi. Painting classes are offered on weekends. They also display art from local artists and have cool cat-themed gift items.
Cat Cafe Melbourne is Australia’s first cat cafe! We offer a whole new social environment never before experienced in Australia. The cat cafe is a fun, comfortable, and most importantly, kitty filled space for you to relax and play with 16 lovely cats from rescue shelters. The cats live at the premises and have everything they need right at their paw-tips. You get to play, pat, and socialise with the cats, and you can even order drinks and snacks while inside with the cats!
