Crumbs & Whiskers Cat Cafe - Washington, DC | Books, Cupcakes, and Cats Chasing Chipmunks

As a cat lover, I’ve often wondered what it was like to go to a cat cafe. After all, these places make plenty of sense: purr therapy is incomparable, and if for some reason you cannot have a cat with you, it’s a great way to spend some time with some. It also either gives a permanent home to some kitties, or the opportunity for them to be featured and to interact with humans that could potentially adopt them.

One did open recently in Paris, but I had left Paris before that happened. Austin should have one by the end of the year. Fortunately, I arrived just in time for the opening of the new Washington DC cat cafe, Crumbs & Whiskers.

I spent an hour around cats (and other humans), petting them, playing with them and just enjoying their presence, while I’m away from my cats (them = cats, not humans ;-).

The concept is simple: you book an hour online, and you can come spend the hour with the kitties. You can also order drinks and some food in the cafe.

There are about 20 cats right now, all can be adopted. If you love cats, you should definitely try it. I know I loved it very much.

Below are some more pictures. You can see additional ones on my cat’s blog, here.
