A visit to the Orlando Cat Cafe

Hi everyone,

Our friends from 4cats recently went to the Orlando cat cafe and were so kind and took some lovely photos of the resident cats for all of us.

We are a big fan of cafes like this one in Orlando that promote cat re-homing through the possibility of adopting the resident cats.

Please find the whole story from 4cats below:

Hi everyone,

Earlier this year we were on a business trip to Orlando and while there decided to also checkout the local cat cafe!

And we brought them an extra special present, some of our new and upcoming premium toys selection! : D

We wouldn’t want to be the person / at that tries to take the toy of this little fella… The looks most definitely say “this is mine and I shall NOT EVER part with it!”

We thought that this black and white chap was especially adorable! And he got super lucky as he got to try out our new premium rustling cushion AND our new premium cuddly cushion. 🙂

Ginger cats will always have a very special place for us here at 4cats so plenty of pics had to be taken. 😉

One of the best parts of the Orlando cat cafe is that most of the cats are available for adoption to find their forever home! This type of cafe certainly seems to be a lovely improvement to the older rescue centers with limited space for the cats until they find their forever home.

The cafe didn’t just feature furniture for the humans but also the very important environmental enrichment for the resident cats! Plus this little one decided that the backpack looked tasty haha!

So if you are in Orlando and need a few hours of tranquility with cats away from the crazy Theme Parks why not check out this fantastic cafe on the outskirts of Orlando? More details about the Orlando Cat Cafe can be found here. Bookings are strongly recommended as only a limited amount of people can enter the cafe each hour to ensure the cat safety. The cost is $8 per hour, per person which in comparison to other cat cafes we’ve been to is excellent value for money!

This post first appeared on the 4cats Blog.

Are you looking for some 4cats toys for your own cats? See our whole selection here!

Thanks,

Marc

Our visit to Kitty Café – Nottingham: Cafe turned Magical Forest

Hi everyone,

This time around we first of all wanted to show of some more of the interior decoration of the Kitty Cafe in Nottingham. If you’ve missed Part 4 don’t forget to check it out here.

What stood out the most in the cafe were the trees that held the walking paths up for the cats and made it feel like you were in a magical forest full of cute felines. 🙂

Of course there were fun hiding entrances like the ginger tiger cat as well so that the cats could get away from us humans if they wanted to.

Many of the interior decoration were hiding spaces that would blend in to provide the resident cats with awesome places to nap on or watch the outside world pass by. 🙂

Being a cat cafe of course they also had Persian cats in the cafe. We do have to point out though that while Persians are very different to look at a lot of breeders have taken it to far in recent times and you may want to check out our word of warning when it comes to the over-breeding of Persians.

Thanks again for following us and we hope you enjoyed our story!

More to be featured soon. 🙂

Thanks,

Marc

A Visit to the Brooklyn Cat Café, Saturday, September 3, 2016

A Visit to the Brooklyn Cat Café, Saturday, September 3, 2016

I became friends with Marc and Iain through Katzenworld. They posted several of my poems on Purrsday Poetry. Since Marc and Iain had Brooklyn on their itinerary, I figured why not go to the Brooklyn Cat Café first (around 11 a.m.) before heading over to the Park Plaza Restaurant for lunch and poetry. Both places were within walking distance. I run the Brownstone Poets Reading series and had Steve Dalachinsky, Yuko Otomo, and Mike Jurkovic as the featured poets. The reading was starting at 2:30 p.m. We would have plenty of time to partake in the “purring and head bumping” therapy.

We filled out the required waiver. Once done, it was time to interact with the kitties. The morning hours were best. The café wasn’t crowded, and we didn’t need to have reservations. Marc, Iain, and I had a field day photographing the felines. The kitties were friendly and most loved being divas. No wonder cats rule the Internet!

These are 4cats valerian cushions that you can find on the Katzenworld Shop!

Marc and Iain gave some catnip samples to the café volunteers, as well as several iconic Katzenworld key chains. The kitties approved the colorful catnip bags. One fur baby rolled from side to side, hugging the pillow-like bag.

The Cat Exercise Wheel wasn’t occupied. It took a while to convince the local Bengal to demonstrate how cats workout without going to the gym. The resident cats were their own bosses, and we humans were there to serve and enjoy their antics.

Upon our exit, we paid the five-dollar fee for a half an hour of “purring and head bumping” therapy—a real bargain!

Marc and Iain are natural cat whisperers. I’m still a work in progress. Hopefully, things will change with my building’s management. I’d love to adopt a kitty companion. I need cat therapy 24/7!

These pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since Marc and Iain came to visit me in Brooklyn. It was so much fun!

The Brooklyn Cat Café focuses on rescue and adoption, not food service. Don’t expect to be sipping a cappuccino or latte at a table. The place is small, but large enough for the cats to roam. Reservations are encouraged, especially in the afternoon.
