If drinking good coffee and enjoying the company of cats are two separate activities that sound exciting, The Cat Café offers both to customers. High quality coffee from West Coast Coffee Roasters and Cafe Virtuoso is served here in the company of furry felines who are waiting to be pet. The cats in the playpen are friendly and always active and are also put up for adoption to give them new homes in willful customers' homes.
Situated in a beautiful structure on the scenic Herengracht canal, KattenKabinet is home to a rather quirky art assemblage whose theme is centered around cats. The museum was set up in 1990 as a mark of tribute to John Piermont Morgan, a red cat who stayed here between the years 1966 and 1983. The museum houses an extensive collection of photos, sculptures, posters and paintings of cats. Art works by Sal Meijer, Pablo Picasso and other noted artists also grace the museum walls. Laminated boards inside the museum provide details about each of the 'cat-themed' artworks.
Founded in 1991, Cat Tales Zoological Park can't be missed if you're in the area. The Cat Tales Zoological Park stays true to its name and features rescued felines, including lions, tigers, pumas, bobcats and leopards. However, the park is home to more than just felines, such as bears and snakes. You can go on a guided tour or explore the park on your own. The admission is reasonable and you can go on a "Big Cat Adventure" where you hand feed a lion or tiger behind a barrier fence with the help of a zookeeper. The park is fun for the whole family.
Enjoy bottomless cups of tea as you pet, play and socialize with KitTea's adorable cats, all of whom are up for adoption. The cafe is the first of its kind in San Francisco, and is a haven for all those who find themselves unable to resist a friendly feline. Visits to the cat lounge last up to an hour and incur a fee that includes limitless tea refills. You can also enjoy sandwiches, cakes and other snacks from the cafe menu as you play. A separate tea-room offers a view of the cat lounge, where you can enjoy the varied cafe selection while watching the cats do their thing. KitTea also works alongside Give Me Shelter, a local cat rescue, to help these adorable cats find a permanent home.
