A few months ago I read that Brisbane's first cat cafe had opened and I was S U P E R E X C I T E D. But after screen-shotting this article I sort of forgot to give it another thought ... Until yesterday when Nick arrived at Showroom in the middle of the day with a packet of antihistamines and one last birthday surprise tucked up his sleeve. 

It wasn't until we walked up to the block of shops and I heard the digital meowing sounds being pipped from a basement doorway plastered in puns that I had any idea where we were headed. When I realised I was in for an afternoon of kitty time, I could barely contain my glee!

Bookings are essential at the Cat Cuddle Cafe, open Tuesday through Sunday on Musgrave Road in Red Hill. An hour timeslot will set you back $10.50 per person plus the cost of tea, coffee, and a treat (the selection was actually very nice). 

Run by a charitable animal welfare organisation, the purpose of the cafe is to offer rescue cats and kittens a safe temporary home where guests can fall in love with and potentially adopt their favoured furry friend. Even if you're not in a position to obtain a new pet, visiting the Cat Cuddle Cafe is a super relaxing way to support cute kitties and important rescue work in the city.
