Mews and Nips: Amsterdam’s Floating Cat Sanctuary


If international travel becomes safe again, the Poezenboot (Catboat) in Amsterdam is one of the  places on my list of dream destinations. Forbes recently did a feature on this floating cat sanctuary, which has been in existence since 1966. It can accommodate up to 50 cats, and is open to visitors. For more about the Poezenboot and more wonderful photos, visit

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, I talked about the importance of recharging, on Monday, I announced Jackson Galaxy’s Virtual Cat Camp, on Tuesday, we featured adorable Halloween ornaments from KittyCat Art Studio, on Wednesday, Allegra told you about our new quilt, on Thursday, we showed you some stunning cat glass sculptures, and on Friday, we reviewed He Loves Me, He Really  Loves Me!

Today’s video of Mom tucking in her babies is sure to make your heart melt – enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

    I have heard of this floating cat sanctuary, but had no idea it has been going on that long. That’s wonderful.
