C.O. Cat Café World Tour (With Photos By Vanessa S.)

[*Editor’s Note to any and all shelters in the Greater Toronto area- Vanessa wants to take your photos. Check her site. Thanks. -Ed.]

Vanessa S. took these fantastic photos on our latest World Tour stop- this time in the great White North of Toronto. “No tour of cat cafes would be complete without our TOT Cat Café in Toronto. The fabulous felines who are staying there have come from the Toronto Humane Society and are the most wonderful pussycats ever.” she says.

“I am hoping you can include them in your Tour because we have a large number of homeless cats in Toronto and they could use the help in getting adopted.”

“We had a wonderful night schmoozing with the kitties, drinking coffee, and speaking with the owner, Kenneth, who has come all the way from Saskatoon to start up the café. He told us that it has been a huge success so far. It is a little bit of a wait to get in to meet the kitties… but well worth it!”

“I’m an amateur photographer and I would love to do more volunteer work with shelters and rescues in the Greater Toronto Area. Here’s my website!”

    aww this is so cute. A world tour of cat cafes would be totally awesome!

  2. What a great idea – to use shelter cats in a cat café! I hadn’t heard of any of the cat cafés doing this (though there probably are some), but it’s a great way to help get the cats adopted to good homes! Hope more shelters can do this.

  3. Kudos to TOT Cat Cafe for giving these purrfect babies a 2nd chance at a good home!

  4. Every one I’ve seen operates like this- it’s a win win for all.

  5. There was a cafe in British Columbia, Canada, who had to close for a while because there were no more pussycats! They had managed to clear out the local shelters of all the homeless kitties and got them into homes before the New Year.
    I am hoping that TOT Cat Café can have the same success. The night I took these, they had only been open a little more than a month and already they had lots of kitties on their Adopted board.
    It is a win-win situation all round. They are located close to the University of Toronto, so those students who can’t adopt can go over and socialize them.
    I don’t know why it took so long for our by-laws to ease up a bit to let places like these open up.

  6. awwwwwwww thats all i have to say lol
