What you'll do
You’ll get to be able to cuddle with our rescue cats and kittens who reside at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe until they are adopted into loving homes. They are affectionate, playful, sweet, and fun to be around. Guests of all ages are welcome to sit with the cats, play with toys with them, feed them snacks, or just enjoy watching them as they run around or play with each other. We will also tell you about the cats and kittens in our care and answer questions you may have about animal rescue and care. We are in a spacious urban-rustic unique property in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. We’ll give you suggestions on where you can eat or head off to visit after spending time with us.

Co-founders of the Brooklyn Cat Cafe, Anne, Julia, and I have each fostered hundreds of rescue cats and kittens. We’ve 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 NYS and we’re entirely volunteer-run. Our core group of volunteer supervisors are experts and are knowledgeable and passionate about animal rescue
