Are you crazy for cats? And what about cafés? If you love them both, then why not combine your interests by visiting a cat café? The purrs and the pours will have you smiling, and you'll be back to visit your purr-fect little friends again. Better yet, adopt a "fur baby" and make room for another deserving animal to move in. Treats and tails make the perfect combination!
Meow Parlour – Manhattan, NY
NYC's first cat café is a great attraction for cat lovers in the Big Apple. Feline fans can book a time slot at Meow Parlour, chill with the kitties, grab a café snack, and have the opportunity to fall in love and even adopt a furry friend. Hang out for a half an hour or make a day of it and stick around for up to 5 hours. The cats have free roam of the place, so don't be surprised if they curl up by your feet as you enjoy a sweet treat. Special events like bingo and yoga make for interesting activities, especially when the curious cats are part of the action.

Cat Town – Oakland, CA
About 20 cats have free run of the place at Oakland's Cat Town and all are up for adoption. Just 12 people can visit per hour, so reserve your spot for plenty of purrs and pets. Yoga events in the "Cat Zone" as well as drawing night make for fun ways to spend time with some four-legged friends. Visit the RAWR Coffee Bar at Cat Town for a cuppa Joe or a tasty pastry. They sell all-natural cat food too, so pick up a treat for a deserving little pal on the premises. Since 2011, this spot has been a local favorite for cat-lovers who care.
