What you'll do

Join our cats for some literary and crafty family fun time! We’ll read a book together and then make a craft project based on the story using everyday materials you’re likely to already have at home. Activities will be geared towards families with children ages 2–9, and we would love to have parents involved as an extra set of paws to help with the crafts. Younger and older kids are welcome too—they’ll be given some special projects so the whole family can get in on the art-making. Family pets are not required, but we hope they join the fun!

Cofounders of the Brooklyn Cat Cafe, Anne, Julia, and Rachel have rescued, bottle-fed, medicated, and loved more cats and kittens than we can count. We’ve created an adoption space over the last three years where our rescue animals thrive, receive endless affection, socialize with each other and visitors from all over the world, and find “furever” homes. We’re the only non-profit cat cafe in New York State and we’re entirely volunteer-run. Our core group of volunteer supervisors are knowledgeable experts who are passionate about animal rescue, and also about sharing their wide range of skills with you, with the participation of our rescue animals.

This was fun! Books and activities were engaging and my 2.5 year old really enjoyed it. We did however, run into technical difficulties at the end of it and we weren’t able to see any of the animals or the cat cafe and all. Not sure if it was on their side or mine but these things are expected with virtual programs. Happy to recommend anyways. Cute kitties featured during the story.

The experience did not last the full hour. The level of engagement was high at the beginning but trailed off towards the end. Happy to support the rescue kitty's though, I'm sure they do great work there.

This was a fun way to pass some time with my 5 year old, but I would think it wouldn't be terribly exciting for anyone much older. The host read a storybook and we did a very basic craft. The host had a cat in the room, but the cat took no part in the experience. The host was very friendly and interactive with the kids, however, there was no special element having to do with the cat cafe. At the end, another host took us on a very informal tour of the cafe and we did get to see some turtles which was neart.

Cute stories, nice people, great to see the cats. If your child is into crafts, they’ll really love it.
