On Sunday Tim and I, along with one of our friends, went to hang out with the cats at the Cat Town Cafe.
Cat Town Cafe in Oakland California is the first ever cat cafe in the U.S. Part cafe, part cat adoption clinic, part cat fun zone, part kitty petting therapy, this place has got it all (if you're a cat lover that is).
While this place first opened up in October 2014 this was the first time I was able to go. Fourteen people are allowed into the cat room at a time every hour on the hour. While we didn't make advance reservations as is recommended on their website, we were lucky enough to get in during the first cat hang out session when someone didn't show up for their reservations.
The main cat room is a large sun-filled room full of fun Oakland themed cat furniture. There is a huge mural along the entire span of one wall as well as another big mural along part of another wall. Two other walls are made up almost entirely of windows that allow the sun to come in while the fourth wall which separates the main cat room from the cafe also has a huge window allowing patrons of the cafe to view the cats and activities going on in the cat room. There's a quiet room in the back of the larger cat room that they let two people in at a time in. This is the room where the cats like to go to get away from the hubbub of the main room.
We had a great time playing, petting, and observing the cats. After our hour visit with the cats there I felt giddy with kitty love hoping that it won't be too long before I get to make my next visit to this amazing magical kitty place.
