Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to the Sydney Cat Cafe pop up – Kitten edition. I basically spent my Saturday morning in a room full of kittens, so pretty much the best Saturday of the year so far.

With Cat cafes popping up all over the globe, it was only logical that Sydney would be hot on this paw-esome idea, with a couple of cat cafes already in the works, what would be more purr-fect than a pop up Kitten Cafe right? You don’t need to purr-suade me. These puns are getting paw-ful. OK I’m done.

So who do we have to thank for bringing this furry cafe to life? Meet Veronica Morland, the mastermind behind Sydney Cat Cafe. Veronica has a dream. That dream is to bring fuzziness, cuteness, happiness and rainbows to Sydney, as well as a permanent cat cafe. The cafe will be home to a number of rescue cats where they will comfortably live and sleep. But it doesn’t stop there, Veronica’s bigger picture is to hopefully find permanent, loveable homes for her feline friends. Patrons of the cafe can adopt the cats, only of course after thorough interviews and home checks. She is adamant that the best interests of the cats will always be at the top of her priority list. This includes ensuring that any future homes will be the most suitable environments for them to be lazy couch potatoes, as they slowly transform their owners into their personal slaves.

Every good business idea needs some buzz so between the 14th – 17th of May, Veronica decided to host a pop up kitten cafe at the William St Gallery in Paddington. Her guests of honour were a number of tiny 4 legged friends from Maggie’s Rescue. At the same time, she launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to help turn her idea into reality. The kitten pop up was a hit, selling out super fast, with cat enthusiasts losing their mind over the idea of spending 30 minutes in a room full of kittens. Needless to say I was pretty excited to get an email inviting me to join in on the fun.

I turned up on Saturday, excited and over stimulated like a cat on catnip. Small groups of no more than 15 people were allowed in for 30 minutes of play time, allowing everyone to get a cuddle, whilst not overwhelming the kittens. Soft plush beds were positioned around the room, while scratching posts fit for cat kings were primed for climbing and general lazing about.

Before I knew it 30 minutes was up and all the kittens were rounded back up into their beds to await the next group of 15 people, eagerly waiting outside. Needless to say, I left with a smile on my face, a bounce in my step, kitten hair all over my clothes and only the slightest allergic reaction.

Check out the Sydney Cat Cafe Kickstarter and back this awesome cause. Give rescue cats a chance, get a cool new cafe opened and get some cool stuff in return. Everybody wins. Veronica Morland is on a self proclaimed path to becoming head Crazy Cat Lady, so let’s not stand in the way of her true calling in life.

Crazy Cat Ladies unite.

    I love the name of your blog! And the kitten pictures are adorable. I like kittens, but they grow up to be cats, and they tend to be incompatible with dogs, birds, small furry creatures like guinea pigs and fish.
