It wasn’t very long ago that America’s first cat café opened, but in just two years, more than two dozen have opened throughout the US. In honor of International Cat Day on August 8, we thought it would be fun to take a look at all the places in the country where you can hang out with your favorite furry friends and sip some coffee at the same time. Sounds like a pretty great afternoon, right?
Eater put together a list of North America’s 24 open and upcoming cat cafés, and although the list isn’t completely up to date, it serves as a great basis for all your questions about the best places to consort with calicos and tag along with tabbies. You’ll notice that there are cat cafés all over the east and west coasts, and even a few scattered in between.
So, if you’re feeling festive and slightly adventurous, take advantage of Monday’s holiday by visiting one of the many cat cafés around the country. The real challenge will be leaving without adopting one.
