Last Caturday, Cuteporter AJM introduced us to the new Cat Café now online in San Diego, and she promised an in-person followup, which we present to you now!
“The Cat Café is a little out of the way, just north of the Convention Center and east of San Diego’s famed Gaslamp District. Parking can be a little difficult- take the trolley as the Convention Center stop on the green line is only a few minutes walk. The food area is in one room and cats in another. The place is very basic, got a industrial vibe. I’m not here for atmosphere but the kitties! There’s no fee for visiting but please buy something. They got drinks, both cold and hot, and prepackaged snacks, and everything is relatively inexpensive. Spent around $6 for a large coffee and a pastry.”
“There’s about 5 tables for the humans and lots of cubbies/perches for the cats. If there’s not a big crowd in the room there’s no time limit but once the room reaches capacity (around 20 people) the owner will clear the room after 15 minutes and give the cats 5 minutes to chill before letting people back in.”
“I hope that after the novelty and media excitement wears off that people will still come to visit the cats. I know I’ll definitely be back a couple times a month to get my kittie fix.”
