This is a guest post by Valerie Hansen from Maple Leopard.

Catpuccino anyone? If you are a lover of coffee and cats, then Meowtropolitan cat cafe is a must see destination! The Wallingford area of Seattle is home to this new coffee shop and cattery. Cat cafes are quite popular in Europe, and are starting to gain popularity here in the states. 

I've loved cats all my life. I think I was born with the cat lover gene, if there is such a thing! My fondest childhood memory of my dad, was him carting his cat along with him everywhere he went. When I heard the Meowtropolitan was coming to town, I knew I had to get there asap! 

This unconventional coffee shoppe idea was a dream come true for two University of Washington graduates. They want people to come hang out, feel a sense of community, and enjoy the company of the cats. 

I know some of you are probably thinking: Ew!! - I don't want be served up any fur with my java! No worries, the cafe is a separate room from the cattery. You can sit in the coffee shop and enjoy the cats through the huge viewing windows, or order your drink and take it inside the cat room. 

I had a fabulous time checking out all the beautiful kitties! They were so much fun to play with and watch! There were a few feisty boys that provided endless entertainment. The orange tabby I am holding was a hoot. He took several journeys to the top of the rafters! Oh and...oops...I broke the rules... you are not supposed to pick up the furry loves! 

I love the mission of this business: They are partnering with Regional Animal Services of King County (RASCK). All the cats are brought from the shelter and are available to adopt. Fur babies of your own are not allowed in the cafe.

If you would like to reserve a time in the cat lounge, follow these 3 steps for a hassle-free experience: 

1. Make a reservation online 
 2. Come to the cafe and order your drink 
3. Check in with the cashier and proceed to the cat lounge and have fun! 

I was able to get in on a cancellation, as I did not reserve my spot ahead of time. The cost to enter the lounge part of the cafe is 10.00. The fee does include a drink of your choice and it helps fund the adoption /upkeep of the animals. The time in the cattery is limited to 50 minutes, so the cats don't get too overwhelmed.

If you feel you need some feline themed merchandise in your life - mugs, t-shirts and the like are available online. T-shirts and a few other items can be purchased on location.

If you are in the area, I hope you can stop by to enjoy the friendly company of the felines and a cuppa jo! Have you ever been to a cat cafe? If so feel free to share in the comments. I hope the New Year has been good to you so far, and thanks for taking time to visit.

  4. I hope it is a wild success.. (although I do wonder what makes coffee cute)

    I also hope that they have the same issue that they had up in Vancouver... that all the cats were adopted out.

  10. It sounds fantastic! I'd love to visit (if in that continent!) - Ha, I laughed at the cat in the bag- we used to despair of ours as they always used to climb into any bag you left on the floor (and usually weed in plastic ones!)x

  16. That is awesome! I'm sure they have a good success rate with adoptions that way. My son has been volunteering at our local animal shelter (here in South Africa) doing jobs like cleaning kitty litter, etc. Yesterday he said the day was more relaxed and he spent some time playing with the kitties. I've got two cats that my in-laws adopted from an animal shelter as kittens years ago that are featured on my latest blog hop:

  17. I love this idea. But I would not be able to go if I couldn't pick up the kitties. I'd lose my mind with the need for a cuddle :)
