Le Cat Cafe | I recently attended a cat cafe for the first time. Le Cat Cafe, to be exact. Le Cat Cafe is located in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia. Although it does not have a designated parking lot, depending on when you go, you may be able to easily snag metered street parking within close walking distance.

Le Cat Cafe features adoptable cats from Green Street Rescue. It is run entirely by volunteers and fully funded by donors. It opened in March 2016 and in 2017 GSR rescued 411 cats and adopted out 198. There is no denying that GSR and Le Cat Cafe is doing wonderful things for the city of Philadelphia and its feral cat population.

There are a variety of ways one can enjoy Le Cat Cafe such as cats + coffee, yoga, and special events.  Upon entrance, each visitor must sign a waiver and is provided a K-Cup for coffee/tea. The reason behind my visit was to attend a baby shower for which we rented out the entire cafe for 1.5 hours. 

Le Cat Cafe is decorated to reflect its Parisian-style influence. There is an eiffel tower in the front window, which doubles as a multilevel cat bed. There are also many French-inspired cat art pieces and Parisian-style cafe tables and chairs. It is very lovely and quaint. The bathroom is also adorably decorated and very clean. The kitty litter boxes are placed discretely throughout the cafe. Although there is no denying that the cafe smells like cats, it is not offensive or overpowering.

There were 13 cats occupying the cafe during our event. There was a good mix of playful cats with napping cats. Overall it was a very relaxing, lovely experience.
