What It’s Like to Go to a Michigan Cat Café
Hey, all you cool cats and kittens. Sorry, I just had to.
But seriously, if you like cats; if you consider yourself a "cat person"...a cat cafe is something you should experience at least once in your life.
What is a Cat Cafe?
A cat cafe is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It's a cafe that has cats. And I'm not just talking about the decor. I mean real, live cats. Those adorably fuzzy, purring machines.
A cat cafe is a perfect place for someone who is feline inclined. You get to spend some time playing with and petting all kinds of cats (kittens too), there's a cafe with beverages and small snacks to enjoy, and if you're looking to add a furever friend to the family, you can adopt a cat that you connect with while you're there.
Cats, Kittens, Coffee, and Adoption
Most cafes offer an array of experiences. The most common being some kind of time spent playing with the cats and a beverage from the cafe. And there are all kinds of experiences to choose from, too.
You can always just schedule a visit to hang out with the kitties. But you could also rent out the whole room by the hour, you could host a private party there, or you could join the cafe at any one of their event nights. Heck, you could even go just to grab a delicious latte and some cute cat stickers. Cat cafes have a little bit of something for everyone.
