ARE YOU KITTEN ME RIGHT MEOW?! NOPE! IT'S 100% TRUE... and we are so excited we were able to open our doors to all of you, and many homeless Charlotte cats! We have worked hard to make this dream a reality...
(Reservations aren't technically required, but they are highly suggested... especially on weekends!)
It's a super simple concept. Cool place, lots of cats to hang with (don't bring your own, we have it covered!) while sipping on some tasty beverages like coffee from Pure Intentions Coffee and kombucha from Lenny Boy Brewing Company, as well as wine and local brews (coming soon!) Our guests pay by the hour and reservations are highly encouraged, although walk-ins are welcome if we have the space! We keep our cat to human ratio equivalent so our cats don't get stressed, and you get ample cat time while you're here!
We have leased two spaces side-by-side to abide by NC law, providing a happy and healthy environment! One space is our dedicated "Cat Lounge" that will house 12 adoptable cats at any given time with lots of cozy seating for our guests. Our cafe space is designated for check-ins, to grab a beverage or some of our paw-some merchandise before heading over to chill with the kitties. You are allowed to bring food and drinks into the Cat Lounge - just don't share with anyone furry!
To hang with our cats, you'll have to sign our waiver stating that you will respect the boundaries put in place for the well being of the cats and humans alike!
When you fall madly in love with a Mac Tabby cat and just can't imagine leaving for home without him... here is the best part... Mac Tabby cats are available for adoption! We are working exclusively with our partner, Catering to Cats and Dogs, to get these beautiful kitties to their forever homes. C2CND provides medical necessities and ensures ALL cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, combo tested and up to date on vaccines before they become a Mac Tabby kitty. Anyone looking to adopt will be encouraged to fill out the adoption application and work with our adoption coordinators!
Crazy-amazing, right?! We know!
Yoga with our kitties? Yes please! Story Time in the morning for your little one?! Seriously, nothing cuter. Paint Class with a local artist? Awesome! Love live music? Low-key acoustic sets only... to stick with our vibe, and respect our cats sensitive ears.
See? Everything IS better with a cat... and now you're imagining yourself there aren't you? Yeah, it really is THAT great...
We love the Charlotte community as much as we love cats (and that's a LOT!)
We would love (actually, PREFER) for you to be involved in this crazy-amazing concept. Are you an artist or musician? We'd love to know. Do you have something super unique you'd like to offer? We are all ears... PLEASE, tell us! Your insight, opinion and talent matter to us... we are so glad you're here!
