Vienna’s First Cat Cafe

After three long years Vienna, Austria, has their very first Cat Café named “Cafe Neko.”. Unfortunately you will need to fly to Vienna if you want to visit with “Cafe Neko’s” five fur babies and enjoy a nice cup coffee.

I’m wondering if a Cat Café would take off where I live? I know I would love it if someone started one where I live. That’s one Cat Cafe I’d be visiting almost daily. I’m really happy that someone finally opened a Cat Café. It seems that only the dog lovers get all the attention, and us cat lovers are always left out, not anymore.

Customers at the “Cat Neko” can pet the five felines who live there named  Sonja, Thomas, Moritz, Luca and Momo. They all came from a local animal shelter and now freely roam about the cafe visiting with customers and taking the occasional cat nap.
