Cat cafes are a mash-up that crosses a coffee shop with a pet adoption center. Spend time hanging out with cuddly kittens and playing with cats that have been rescued, while enjoying traditional cafe products such as coffee and baked goods (made in a separate area). Most cats and kittens are available for adoption. Check websites for visiting hours.
