A café that opened Friday offers coffee, tea and baked goods, and also a space for hanging out with adoptable cats.
Cat cafés, as Crooked Tail describes them, are places “to grab a sip and enjoy the company of felines.” They are intended to be therapeutic for visitors and a means for matching cats with potential future families.
Some pointers about the Greensboro cat café:
▪ Don’t take your own cat – they have plenty.
▪ The café has two sections, a “Kitty Lounge” separated from the food and drink area.
▪ An entry fee of $10 for the Kitty Lounge gets you “one hour of as many cuddles and snuggles as you can get.”
Several other North Carolina cat cafés are in the works, in Raleigh, Wilmington, Charlotte, and Kernersville.
Purr Cup Café hopes to open in Raleigh the spring of 2018.
