It hasn’t been open for very long, but the Brooklyn Cat Cafe has already found its place in the fabric of our neighborhood. Widely covered by local and national media, it was most recently featured in Condé Nast Traveler, and its schedule of events for the neighborhood is in full swing.
Next Wednesday, June 22, join the felines in residence for an evening of readings by local authors Andrea Chapin, Jennifer Cody Epstein, Hillary Jordan, Julie Klam and Alison Lowenstein (click the link for more info on the authors).
The evening is sponsored by Henry Street Wine and BookCourt and will include light eats and wine…and of course the cats!
Your $25 ticket (click to purchase) supports the work of the Cat Café and Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, which rescues, socializes, and re-homes cats and kittens in our neighborhood and beyond. The evening will also include a raffle and begins at 7:30pm.
If cats are your thing but kids aren’t, head to the café this Saturday from 5 – 7pm for an adults-only evening with the felines. Admission is $5 for a 30-minute visit.
And if you can’t get yourself to Atlantic Avenue but need a kitten fix, check out the 24-hour kitten cam.
Brooklyn Bridge Animal Rescue Coalition’s Brooklyn Cat Cafe is entirely run by volunteers and all donations to the cat café and BBAWC contribute to the lodging and care of rescue cats. The café has found homes for more than a dozen cats since it opened.
