Why haven’t you been to a cat cafe yet? It’s 2019, cat people! It’s not 2014 anymore, kit kats. Sure, we’d scarcely heard of a cat cafe in those early years of the decade. Cat cafes were an exotic destination, an internet novelty. But then the first cat cafe opened in California. In five short years, you can now find cat cafes in well over half of states in the country, with many states having multiple cafes. Cat cafe out of the bag? Cat cafe fever? 2018 proved to be giant year for cat cafe growth, with fifteen cafes opening across the country.
2019 promises to be the best year yet for cat cafes. January pounced on the scene with the opening of three new cat cafes. Two debuted in Ohio in the first days of the new year. California has several new cafes and Virginia is set to double the number of cat cafes they started the year with. Now mid-way through the year, there are eleven new destinations to our USA cat cafe map. And more are set to open even before the summer’s end.
This makes it is easier than ever to find a cafe near you! If you still don’t have one in your neighborhood, build a visit into your next trip. There’s good reason for why cat cafes are so popular: they’re AWESOME! Time for a cat cafe roadtrip!
