There are two cat cafe in not too far away and I was thinking of visiting. I like cats but can’t have one as a pet (I’ve only been with cats at friends’ houses). I was looking at reviews and a few raised ethics, that cats will be stressed by so many people. Both cafes say that there are separate places that cats can go to be private. Is that good enough. One cafe takes rescue cats/kittens and if the cats are stressed by the situation will re-home. The other says that they are all the owners cats. Some are pedigree.

What you do think about cat cafes?

If I visit I expect to get covered in cat hair, so not wearing anything expensive - are there any types of fabric that are harder/easier to wash?

Meh.. some cats love attention & people and some cats don’t.

Blue jeans and non black / dark top in case there’s a lot of white / black & white cats

I haven't been to one and wouldn't. I don't like the idea of any animal being confined in order to amuse us. You could volunteer at a cat rescue if you'd like some cat company.

I have been to the one in Manchester and loved it.
You book a slot so the amount of people in there at one time is very limited.
There are cat flaps to private areas so the cats come and go as they please.
You can stroke and play with the cats but you are not allowed to follow them around or pick them up.
We had a lovely hour in there just cat watching

We’ve got one in Nottingham. I’m not overly keen on it. The cats are overstimulated and it’s always very busy. They are well cared for but it’s no life for the permanent residents. They do act as a rehoming centre. You have to pay £6 just to get in. And they constantly tell you how much time you have left.

Thanks for the views - think I'll have a look from the outside to see what it is like then decide
