I ran into the nicest girls who run This & That with Cats at an Art & Cats event at Sunset place. You can tell they really care about the cat community and are doing what they can to help. I also love the fact that they support local Miami Artists by hosting classes.
Cat Lounges Around the World
This is the BEST place EVER! When you are happy - nothing makes you even more happy than kittens. There are so many lovely kittens here to make you happier! When you are sad - we’ll, you just can’t stay sad with a cat in your lap purring. There are tons of cats that cuddle and purr here. It is a fantastic environment for individuals, families, friends, even group outings to play with wonder cats and kittens. You might just find the love of your life and adopt the little fur ball.
The experience of the catcade is any animal lovers dream. If you want to just relax, there are several little nooks to curl up in and a cat will more than likely come cuddle. Just play with a fur ball? There are toys for them to interact with as well. Old video game selections, a movie playing, kind cat lovers surrounding you. Everything you could ever want for an hour! It was so great I went back the same day.
We loved our visit. The cafe is relaxing, quirky and mellow. Coffee and cats is a fantastic way to spend the afternoon. We can't wait to come back 😊
I enjoyed my time there, all the cats were wonderful, the staff was nice, and they had tables set up with games and coloring books to choose from. The walls are decorating with cat paintings, I would assume perhaps from their painting with cats event. Although, I will be fair and say at the time they were going through some remodeling so it was a bit barren and unrefined, but myself and company didn't mind. They had paintings up for decoration and plenty of places for the cats to climb and sleep. They are also going through some stuff to get food licenses, so they didn't have much to offer besides stuff like water, but considering I came more for the cats and it's still becoming established, I didn't mind that either. I'm sure they'll be better once they do get more on their feet, but if you just wanted to hang out with cats and friends it's still a nice place to go.
We visited Ella's on a rainy afternoon. Most of the cats were sleepy but still happy to cuddle. Although we were the only two people there any way, the maximum allowed in the cat room at a time is four visitors so there's a great human to cat ratio :) Two adorable dogs belonging to a volunteer were hanging out towards the back in a stroller. Definitely recommend if you're in need of some cat time!
