Get ready, New Orleans: a real live cat cafe (well, mostly) is coming soon to a trendy neighborhood near you.
Crescent City Cat Club
(CCCC), a "visitation and adoption facility" located in Faubourg Marigny, opens Nov. 4 and features both indoor and outdoor cat habitats for 10-15 furry friends. The resident cats have been locally sourced from Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter and move in this weekend.
There's a $7 fee to hang out at this cat party, or for $10 you can enjoy a drink (coffee, soda, water) and a snack (chips, cookies, nuts, popcorn) during your visit. You may also bring your own refreshments, and there's free Wi-Fi and "cat-related media offerings." CCCC accommodates roughly 10 guests at a time.
The facility probably can't guarantee that the cats will enjoy your company — or even notice you're there — but if you happen to make a connection, the animals are adoptable and your CCCC entry fee is refundable if you take one home.
More information is available on the organization's website or by calling (833) 665-2228 (NOL-ACAT).
