Coming up at the Cat Cafe

Tonight! Every Thursday, the Brooklyn Cat Cafe offers some kid-free kitten time, with admission limited to those 14 and older. 5:30 – 7:00 pm.

Every other Saturday, including this one (Sept. 24) is also an “adults only kitten happy hour,” from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.

Admission to the cafe (149 Atlantic Avenue) is $5, supporting the rescue and adoption work of Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, which runs the Cafe.

This Sunday is the last of the month, so it’s time for “Stretch and Snuggle with Jessi,” an hour of stretching surrounding by sweet snuggling kitties at the Cafe. The class focuses on lengthening and strengthening to help prevent injuries, increase energy, and contribute to the body being in balance. Students are welcome to pause in their stretching to play with any felines looking to join in.


The class is led by Jessi, a native New Yorker who began dancing with Jacques D’Amboise’s National Dance Institute, and then trained and graduated from The School at Steps on Broadway’s pre-professional program before taking a leave from dance to pursue an interest in animal welfare. She holds a B.A. in Animal Studies from SUNY Empire State College, completed internships at Best Friends Animal Society and Animal Farm Foundation, and spent two years serving the ASPCA Adoption Center’s behavior team.

Purchase tickets here and bring your own yoga mat. Cost of the class is $25 and helps to support the rescue/adoption work of the Cafe.

Also on Sunday, from noon to 6:00 pm, stop by the Cat Cafe during the annual Atlantic Antic. The Cafe will feature a Kitty Kissing Booth, coloring contests for kids, t-shirts for sale, and other activities.

In other feline news, Infinite Hope will have a table at Atlantic Antic outside of Hope Vet at 390 Atlantic Avenue.  Come meet their adoptable kittens, learn about their work, and maybe sign up to be a volunteer?
And don’t forget that on Saturday, Oct. 1, Infinite Hope will be participating in the Strut Your Mutt walk in Hudson River Park to raise money for Infinite’s Hope rescue efforts. You can register here to walk (without or without a mutt) or, if you can’t join Infinite Hope that day, you can make a donation and become a virtual team member.
