This weekend we visited the Java Cats Cafe in Atlanta. It was so much fun! The cafe has only been open about two weeks and they have had great success! So far eleven cats have been adopted!
I heard about the cafe from an interview on Star 94.1 in Atlanta. I knew my daughter would be head over heels to visit so I made reservations right away! The cafe has partnered with PAWS Atlanta to foster up to twenty cats at one time. The cats are available for adoption through PAWS Atlanta. The partnership is a brilliant idea. If you are looking to adopt a cat this is a great way to spend some time with the cat before you decide on which one you like!
They have partnered with Ebrik Coffee to serve some of the best coffee in Atlanta. If you don’t want to go into the cat room you can order food and a drink and sit in the coffee shop. You watch the cats from there if you like!
We reserved one hour in the cat room for $10 each. The price includes a drink. After about 15 minutes in the room I started to realize how oddly relaxing it was. There was nothing to do except to play with cats, pet cats and talk to the other people in the room. Honestly, don’t we all need to stop, slow down and just chill for a bit. Petting a purring cat is a great way to do that. Of course, we never meet a stranger so we chatted it up with the others in the room and met some really fun people to talk to!
Some of the cats climbed up to a quiet spot and just chilled. Other cats were totally ready to play. It was so fun to play with an 8 week old kitten that could jump so high! Some of the older cats wanted to get in on the action also.
Be sure to go to the blog and read the story about how the Java Cats Cafe was started. The young lady that started it is great. I was happy to have my daughter meet her. She is a great example of setting your mind to something and making it happen. She is truly following her dream!
The cafe is in Grant Park and is easy to get to. There is parking and other fun things to do in the area! If you like cats or coffee be sure to check it out and support this great small business that is doing great things for animals!
I promise you don’t have to be a “crazy cat lady” to enjoy the experience. There were all kinds of people in there having a great time.
I’m willing to bet that you will leave the Java Cat Cafe in a better mood than when you went in there. Just look at the peaceful cat in the window! Can you even resist that?
Rose wanted to adopt every cat in there! Trying to get her to leave the cafe was like prying a toddler from a playground! I know we will return for sure.
