Warning there will be lots of photos of cats and cat-shaped things.
NYC Meow Parlour is part cafe and part cat heaven. The idea came from crowded Asian cities with small apartments that wouldn’t allow pets. These cafes let you interact with cats in a homey environment, without having the responsibility of being a full-time cat mom (or dad).
It’s kind of perfect. If I didn’t have two cats of my own, I’d probably live at a cat cafe.
The best part, they’re adoptable! But I can’t imagine the cats wanting to leave. The cat cafe was glorious – so many places for them to climb, sleep, and play!
We went in the middle of the day, so the cats were doing what they do best.
This is an ottoman with a cat bed inside. Brilliant.
Our trip wouldn’t be complete without some excitement.
There was lots of drama over the toys.
Sleeping in the toy box because #yolo.
My friend Sara and I booked our visit to the cafe months in advance! That’s how busy it is! So as not to exhaust the poor kitties, they limit the amount of people who can visit the cafe in a day.
You can also purchase coffee and treats at the cafe across the street and bring them into the cat area. Are you ready for this?
So many cat shaped sweets!
It was all very cute. And tasty!
The whole cafe was super cute and calming. It had everything you’d find in your favorite coffee shops, plus cats!
