With the help of Purina and Long Island’s North Shore Animal League, the Cat Cafe will be making its grand opening in New York this Thursday. This is the first cafe of its kind in the U.S.
Visitors at the Purina Cat Cafe can stop in for “conversation and cat health education.” Long Island’s North Shore Animal League, (a no-kill shelter), will have cats there for you to hang out with that are also up for adoption. So if you should find the one, you can adopt your newly beloved fur-baby and bring them home with you that same day.
Rumor has it that the cafe service may be provided by a well-regarded specialty coffee roaster based out of Brooklyn.
This is a big deal that New York is opening up the Purina Cat Cafe so soon. They actually beat out several other cat cafesPLANNED to be in San Francisco, Oakland and Montreal.
“We hope our CatCAFÉ is ONE small step towards a greater focus on cat health,” said Purina brand manager Brian Williams. “Our goal for the Cat Café is to create a rich, interactive environment that empowers cat owners to learn more about their cat’s health and nutritional needs.”
The Purina One Cat Café will be open to the public Thursday-Sunday, April 24-27, at 168 Bowery, New York, NY.
