Let’s Get Cozy:  Winter Days are the Best Days for a Cat Cafe

Snow piling up? Grey skies got you blue? Of course the answer is always cats. Specifically, cat cafes! In fact, winter is the best of times to visit a cat cafe. Some cafes have fewer visitors and all cat cafes welcome the support during the uneven winter months.  Cats agree: get yourself to a cat cafe right meow!

As cabin fever sets in, set off for your nearest cat cafe for the cure. They will set you up with kitties, a mug of your favorite warm beverage, and all the warm & fuzzies you need to beat the winter blues. With many schools called off, cat cafes are a great place to take the kiddos on a snow day. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even fall in love with an adoptable cat.

Winter Outside the Cat Cafe is Frightful

Cat Cafes Feeling the Chill 

It’s been tough sledding in many parts of the country this week. After a relatively mild December, many places are experiencing the full, extended force of winter. From Arkansas’s Gibson’s Cat Cafe to Oregon’s Playful Paws Cat Cafe, Tennessee’Catfeine Cat Cafe to Mississippi’s Cattiesburg Cafe, and New Jersey’s Catsbury Park to Ohio’s Kitty’s Catfe, cat cafes are feeling the chill this week. Many have had to reduce hours or even close for multiple days due to weather this week (don’t worry:  the kitties are always well-cared for and warm!) Reduced hours and closures mean a reduction in the revenues that support the cats and the small businesses devoted to the kitties.

While January can be slow for many businesses,  it can be acutely felt in small businesses (very small) like cat cafes. Know that every visit to the cat lounge and every drink purchase helps support both rescue cats and a small business.  Let’s warm up this cold snap with a cat cafe visit this weekend, this week. Why not give yourself an hour at your local cat cafe this weekend! Even if you can’t visit the cat lounge, swing by for coffee and treats. Some cafes like  Spokane’s Kitty Cantina even have a drive-thru!
