Get your feline fix with St. Louis' newest Cat Cafe

Coffee, Cats, and Cuddles

July 23, 2019

ST. LOUIS (KNOU) - Have you ever wanted to enjoy a cup of coffee while cuddling up with a furry friend? 

Look no further, because The Cheshire Grin Cat Cafe is opening on August 3rd in Benton Park. 

The Cheshire Grin Cat Cafe showcases their adorable adoptable felines by allowing them to roam freely around the establishment so that customers can enjoy their coffee and baked good while immersed in the restorative environment.

The cats were adopted from local animal rescue organizations like Stray Rescue, the APA, and St. Louis City's Animal Care and Control.

The cafe is willing to foster any adult-friendly cat(s) that have been FIV/FELV tested, neutered, and fully vaccinated to be an indoor cat, and the cafe urges any overcrowded shelters to reach out as they're more than happy to take in any felines that fit the requirements.

“If you’re looking for a cool spot to have a meeting, grab a coffee or work on your laptop while watching some cats we think it is an ideal spot,” said one of the co-owners, Paul Scimone to Sauce Magazine.

“When you walk in, there is a mini cafe. If you choose, that leads to a large area where adoptable cats are free-roaming,” Scimone said. “[There are also> big windows where you can peak in and watch from the cafe area.”

It's only $5 per hour to get the opportunity to cuddle with these furry friends, and the proceeds go towards the care and needs of the cats, such as food, litter, and toys.
