The cafe is located at 149 Atlantic Avenue, and boasts big soft couches, cardboard cat furniture and plenty of places for cats to explore. Human fans include Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who paid a visit at yesterday's opening.
The cafe will allow customers to buy bottled drinks, coffee and snacks and other pre-packaged food while getting to know adoptable cats, from kittens to adults, and adds, "Admission is $5 per half hour, and free for children 3 and under. While reservations are recommended, they are not required. Cafe-goers interested in adopting a cat can apply during their visit or via the cafe website. All medical care for the cats at the cafe is overseen by the amazing veterinarians at Vinegar Hill Veterinary Group."
Photographer Tod Seelie visited the cafe yesterday, and says these little critters were the "most fun and engaging" he's seen! He pointed out one particularly adorable photo: "There was an enclosed area with a mom and a litter of newborns."
