Pet Me Meow

Now you can visit a cat cafe in Toronto (sort of)

We've been getting some comments asking us what's going on on the Toronto cat cafe front. It's an exciting, edge-of-cat-condo world, so let me bring you up to speed: first, there was Kitty Cat Cafe (formerly Smitten Kitten)'s announcement that they would be Toronto's first. Then, competition entered the ring in the form of Pet Me Meow. Both cafes have Indiegogo crowd funding pages up (KCC, PMM) and both will exist for a good cause: to help rescued cats socialize and find homes. But when will Torontonians get to experience a cafe full of felines without traveling to the US or Asia?

This weekend, it turns out. Pet Me Meow are setting up a pop up shop at Redfish Bluefish June 6-8. Stop by this weekend, grab a drink or a snack, and make your way to the temporary Pet Me Meow lounge area, where ten (ten!) kittens from Toronto Cat Rescue will be waiting to assume your shoelaces, hair, and jewelry are delicious prey. The sneak peek at what a cat cafe is like will mark Toronto's first foray into the world of cat cafes, hubs where visitors can make some furry friends and have the option to adopt them. Yes, all ten kittens are adoption ready if you are. Swoon.

Pet Me Meow's pop up runs at Redfish Bluefish (76 Harbord St) June 6-8 from 9am to 7pm. Grab tickets at petmemeow.eventbrite.ca.
