Choosing a cat
Choosing a cat
How we became the first cat cafe in Brooklyn
So many cats, how to choose?
Think about your home and lifestyle
Are you a single person with a quiet lifestyle? A family with young, active kids? Do you live in a small apartment? Do you have a cranky resident cat? No matter your answers, we have a lot of options for you and family. We strongly encourage you to spend some time thinking about what kind of cat(s) would best fit with your current situation. Reach out if you have questions!
Kitten Pair: Get ready for nonstop action and high energy — for the next few years! Young kittens need a lot of supervision, patience, health monitoring and vet visits — and eat a lot!
Adult Pair: Double the love without much more effort on your part! Bonded adults keep each other company when you’re not around and cause less mayhem than young kittens or single adult cats.
Single Cat: Some cats would prefer all the attention to themselves — and we don’t blame them! From young and sassy to chill and thoughtful, there is a wide range of energy levels to consider.
Companion Cat/Kitten: We have many sidekicks looking for a buddy! We are very strict on pairing playmates with an age appropriate feline friend. It’s better for the cats and their human families.
Adopting a cat as an ESA
Adopting young kittens
Young kittens still need several vet visits and adoptions are not considered final until they complete vaccinations and are spayed/neutered. We are happy to organize these visits through us at no additional charge, but you will be responsible for responding promptly to scheduling emails and for transportation to and from the cafe for each visit.
Adopting a hypoallergenic cat
There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic cat. Some cats may affect you differently than others, but it’s unlikely that it has to do with the fur color or type of coat. There are things you can do to minimize your reaction, like using cat wipes to reduce dander or not letting the cat on the bed. If you’re concerned about allergies in your home, we suggest that you foster first! This gives everyone a chance to gauge their reaction with a “trial run.”
Adopting a cat with FIV
Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is one of the most common cat diseases. Recent studies show that FIV+ cats will live a normal healthy and long life when provided with quality care such as a balanced diet and yearly wellness exams (like any cat). As FIV+ is not transmittable between neutered/spayed cats under normal circumstances, we are happy for FIV+ cats to mingle with FIV- cats in their adoptive homes.
