You Can Hang Out With Cats At This Lounge In Arizona & Adopt Them After
This boutique is the cat's "meow."
If you find yourself drawn to everything feline, you might be considered a "cat person," and we're here for it. With their amazing cuddles and kisses, it's no wonder cats are so lovable. You can get your daily dose of cats at La Gattara Cat Lounge & Boutique in Arizona. It'll be an absolutely "purrfect" day.
Located in Tempe, this cat cafe features hour-long sessions where you can cuddle, play, hang out or love on adoptable cats. There are always between 15 to 25 of them at the lounge for you to interact with.
Sessions are $10 per person and advance reservations are highly recommended.
During your playtime with the kitties, you'll find an array of toys, treats, and catnip, so that they can get all the TLC they deserve.
If you happen to fall in love with one of them during your visit, you'll have the option to adopt!
You might also encounter one special kitty, Charlie Chaplin, hanging out at the shop. He's a long-term resident and isn't available to take home, but he'll appreciate all the love too.
If you happen to check the boutique's website, you'll find a tab for an Amazon Wishlist. So if you want to come bearing gifts, you'll know exactly what to bring!
This cafe is only open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so you and your friends can make an afternoon trip then for some kitty snuggles.
From time to time, the lounge hosts "Yoga with Cats" events too. It sounds like a fun and new take on yoga.
Even if you're more of a dog person, this spot is bound to make you happy. Don't take our word for it, just go see for yourself.
La Gattara told Narcity that there are 20 cats currently and that adoption fees on average cost $100. Plus, the fees go to the nonprofit they work with.
