Cat Town Café, the first of its kind in the US, is now open in Oakland, California. The cafe offers a locally sourced menu of light bites and various beverages which customers can enjoy in the company of cats. The Cat Town Cafe will feature an area called the Cat Zone, where cats will be free roaming and available for adoption. Visitors can spend up to an hour in the Cat Zone, and free walk-ins are welcome as space allows. For a $10 donation, you can make a Cat Zone reservation ahead of time, which ensures your visiting time is available. The fee will go toward supporting adoptions. For more information, visit

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, feline veterinarian Elizabeth Colleran shared inside information about the cost of veterinary care, on Tuesday, we reviewed the exciting new Birbug toy from Neko Flies, on Wednesday, Allegra and Ruby told you about their great bug hunting adventure, and on Friday, we reviewed a new childrens’ book, The Adventures of Coco Le Chat. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for another chance to win a Feather Whirl™ toy for your cats!

Watching the little girl in today’s video interact with her kitten totally melted my heart. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
