The nation’s very first Cat Cafe finally opened over the weekend in Oakland, just a short time ahead of San Francisco’s KitTea, which is due to open its doors soon.
We’ve been overly psyched about the new cafe, which is now accepting reservations for kitty visits.
The new Cat Town is actually a joint space, with one side being an actual coffee-serving, bagel-slinging cafe, and the other functioning as the Cat Zone, a play area featuring adoptable cats hanging out around miniature cat-sized versions of Oakland landmarks, like the scratching post BART Train and the “Ports of Cat Town“.
The Cafe is first and foremost an adoption facility, allowing its inhabiting kittehs a good amount of space to cohabit while they await adoption. Visitors need only spend a $10 donation to reserve up to an hour of hang out time with the local felines.
The Cat Zone is open from 10am to 7 pm daily, with the cafe opening a couple hours earlier.
Make your reservation here.
