California is for cat lovers! Oh yeah, you’ll find more California cat cafes than in any other state in the country. And growth shows no signs of slowing any time soon. 2019 saw a 44% growth in the number of cat cafes in the state.
Start your tour of California cat cafes in San Francisco and work your way south to San Diego to hit all twelve cat cafes. LA’s mobile cat cafe, Moon Cat Cafe, is a bit of a moving target so check their calendar for events (think food truck, but with cats instead of food). Like cat cafes everywhere, California cat cafes are highly individual, each with their own personality and interpretation.
Of course California is home to the very first cat cafe in America. Can you believe that a short five years ago there were NO cat cafes in the United States? We can can thank the founder of Oakland’s Cat Town, Anne Dunn, for bringing cat cafe concept to our shores and expanding the vision to finding homes for rescue cats. Cat Town is of course a premier U.S. cat cafe and must-visit for cat people
