I love seeing more and more cat cafés opening around the United States, and I’m particularly thrilled that there’s finally one in New York City. I’ll take any excuse to visit New York, and I can’t wait to get up there to see Meow Parlour for myself. Located on the  Lower Eastside, Meow Parlour combines sweet cats and delicious sweets in one magical place.  All of the cats who live at the cafe are available for adoption via partner organization Kitty Kind. Visits to the café are by reservation only, and they are currently booking two months in advance! Visit for more information.

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: On Monday, feline veterinarian Dr. Fern Crist provided tips on how to transition your cat to a healthier diet, on Tuesday, we told you about seven foods you should never feed your cat, on Wednesday, we brought you a very unusual version of the famous poem “The Night Before Catmas,” and on Friday, we shared our top ten cat books of 2014.

This first look inside New York City’s Meow Parlour is brought to you by James Mulcahy from Zagat. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
