If you’ve felt like there was something missing the last time you went out on a coffee date, maybe it was the presence of some furry friends. Fortunately, Ottawa’s cat cafe has the purrfect combination of coffee and kitties, so you’ll never feel lonely on your lunch break again. The Feline Cafe is open Tuesday to Sunday, and you might even get to take a kitten home with you!
For lovers of cats, coffee and cute days out, it doesn't get much better than this. Ottawa’s Feline Cafe is a combination of all of that, and their profits go towards a great cause.
Located on Wellington Street West, the coffee shop provides rescued felines with a temporary home until they can be adopted.
On their website, the animal haven describes their business as “A cozy space where you can interact with these lovely rescue cats.”
The cafe's cats range from permanent residents and fosters, to kitties looking for a new home. Visitors are encouraged to spend time with the animals and get to know them, as long as they follow the cat-etiquette rules.
If you end up having a special connection with one particular furry friend, you can adopt them.
Explaining how their company works, the Feline Cafe says, “We are a cause-focused business, which means that our business operates in order to support the cats that we foster.”
“With the profits, we are able to pay for housing, food and supplies for these cats that are looking for their forever home.”
If you visit the cafe and fall in love, the staff recommend you act quickly!
"The best place to check is the cork board when you enter the café," says the website.
All you have to do to have some fluffy fun is make a $3 donation, and purchase a snack or a drink at the counter.
A similar cafe can be found in Toronto, where you can snuggle up with friendly cats while you enjoy your brunch.
In Nova Scotia, bookstore guests can enjoy curling up with a good novel and a friendly kitten.
Whatever you decide to do with your snowy Saturday, cuddling with cats sounds like a good place to start.
