Belgium has just opened its first cat café: Le Chat Touille. Located in Saint-Gilles (part of Brussels), Le Chat Touille is home to five cats that were all adopted from the local shelter WAHF. Everyone can come in for free to cuddle the cats and eat/drink something in their company. It is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 12pm to 8pm.

I visited Le Chat Touille on Tuesday, and spent the entire afternoon with their cats Fripouille, Noël, Coca, Simba, and Chiquita. They are all very relaxed and are definitely enjoying their new life in the cat café. As Le Chat Touille is only a ten-minute-drive from where I live, I will certainly come back here to dine with a friend or to write. 

Have you ever been to a cat café? What’s your experience? 

PS. Have you seen our pictures of the Black Cat Café in Japan?

  3. There are cat cafes in Belgium? I didn't know that. I've not been to a cat cafe myself but I've always enjoyed the idea. It made more sense in Japan though as houses there are small and a lot of people don't have room for cats.

  6. Wow, a cat cafe! I hear that there's one here where I live, but I've never been to one. That green wall makes a great backdrop for the photos. :)

  9. That's weird and awesome. lol I also wish we had those little cat posts with pieces of carpet on them. It would've saved a recliner or two. lol

  19. You're so lucky! Your pictures are great of these lovely kitties. I'm so glad they're all rescues. I think ones in both NYC and Paris have recently opened. I hope to visit both!

    p. s. I love your logo!

  26. There are more and more cat cafes opening up and if it gives more homeless cats a safe spot to enjoy being with humans and MAYBE even find a forever home we say BRAVO! This group looks quite content......

  27. That's so cool! A cat cafe is a wonderful idea. I hope one opens near us!

  28. I've didn't realize that cat cafes were real things! Haha, that's so awesome!

  29. Love the contrast of the green wall. Beautiful!

  30. Ils ont effectivement l'air satisfaits ces chats.
    Je ne sais pas exactement pourquoi mais c'est une idée qui au fond de moi me laisse une impression de malaise.

    A Nice il y a un bar à chat qui vient d'ouvrir. Il s'appelle le Nice Cat's Café. Je n'y suis pas allée, mais la moitié des chats sont à l'adoption. C'est peut être une bonne idée dans ce cas.
    Bonne soirée

  33. How sweet! I have never been to a cat cafe...but when I lived in NYC, there were lots of cafes that had a resident cat.

  34. You make beautifull pictures, I am sure those cats understand you very well . I have two cats but if I want to make picture they start moving or running, it seems they do not want to understand me. Thanks for sharing the story and pictures.
