Fans of felines in North Carolina are tickled pink that The Crooked Tail Cat Cafe— the first cat cafe in the state– has opened in the city of Greensboro!
The 411 for Foodies
While adoptable cats are enjoying a taste of the good life inside the separate Kitty Lounge, customers looking to curb their cravings in the cafe section can nom on tasty treats created by Camoni Bakery, washed down with one of a bevy of beverages available, including various coffees, teas, juice, soft drinks, wine and beer.
Patrons who pay a $10.70 fee can book an hour-long stay in the cafe’s Kitty Lounge. The special quarters is the hangout for cool cats from Red Dog Farm Animal Rescue Network, a non-profit organization which has saved the lives of more than 2,600 animals in need–including 699 of our feline friends– since its founding in 2006. (NOTE: During its first week in operation, five cats at the cafe found forever families to love!) Helping to further Red Dog Farm’s efforts, all of the donations made at the cat cafe as well as a portion of sales from cat-themed merchandise on display at the cafe will be given to the rescue network.
Customers should mark their calendars as a reminder to sign up for the cafe’s many special events. Patrons can perfect their Downward Dog with the assistance of a purring partner during a session of Yoga with Cats; cat-loving grown-ups can unleash their inner child during a Board and Card Games with Cats night; and film fans can curl up with a kitty and watch a flick during Mewvie Nights.
Open Tuesday through Sunday, The Crooked Tail Cat Cafe is located at 604 South Elm Street in Greensboro, North Carolina.
