Virgnia Cat Cafes

Could it be time for an update of Virginia’s iconic tourism campaign, Virginia is for Lovers? We think “Virginia is for Cat Lovers” has a nice ring. With three Virginia cat cafes, the state definitely has a flag on the cat cafe map. In fact, Virginia is practically a cat cafe hub! Within just over one hundred miles, you can hit six cat cafes. Six! If you shoot up the East coast a little further to Philadelphia… Ok we’re getting carried away by cat cafes. It happens.

Virginia first hit the cat cafe map in 2017, a few quick years after the first U.S. cat cafe opened in California. In July 2017, Catnip Cat Cafe opened in Norfolk and Central Purrk debuted in Richmond. The state’s newest cat cafe, Patriot Pawsabilities, opened in Fairfax in March 2019. Each is delightful, unique, and most absolutely worth a special trip.
