Oakland, CA. opened up the first full-time Cat Café in the US just before Halloween, and now the East Coast’s first Cat Café is open, stuffed with friendly furry felines! Meow Parlour opened up this past Monday on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
It’s a two-part kinda thing- a bakery serving Kitteh Macarons and coffee on Ludlow Street, and the cat play area across the street on Hester. Their website says “All the cats are adoptable. Meow Parlour has teamed up with KittyKind, an all volunteer, no kill rescue group located in NYC. KittyKind specializes in adopting out cats so if you fall in love, you can apply to adopt one!”
