North Carolina Cat Cafes

North Carolina is one of the leading states for cat cafes in the country! There are now fourteen North Carolina cat cafes, with four new cafes  already opening in 2023. North Carolina is now tied with California for #3 in the number of cat cafes. Pennsylvania has leaped to the #2 spot for cat cafes in the country. Only Florida has more. 

In fact, the ambitious cat enthusiast could quite possibly visit a number cat cafes in one day. We suggest however a more leisurely tour, because, well, you could easily spend a whole day at each one!

While all of the North Carolina cat cafes are in the business of saving and adopting cats, no two are the same. Some are fancy, some are homey. All are fabulous.

Not a Cat Cafe: The American Museum of the House Cat

No discussion of North Carolina cat destinations would be complete without special mention of The American Museum of the House Cat. That’s right, a cat museum. This a one of a kind educational, historical, multimedia art collection devoted to cats! The museum is the creation of Dr. Harold Sims, who also found the local Catman2 Shelter. The modest entry-fee helps support the cats.
