“Such an amazing place … a tranquil environment and the cats are treated so well”
Cat Cafe Melbourne is Australia’s first cat cafe! We offer a whole new social environment never before experienced in Australia. The cat cafe is a fun, comfortable, and most importantly, kitty filled space for you to relax and play with 14 lovely cats from rescue shelters. The cats live at the premises and have everything they need right at their paw-tips. You get to play, pet, and socialise with the cats, and you can even order drinks and snacks while inside with the cats.

Cat cafes are becoming known world wide, the first opening in Taiwan in 1998, and since spreading to Japan, Vienna, Russia, Germany, China, Thailand, the UK, France, and more! The success of cat cafes is due to several reasons, the main one being that cats are awesome. In city centres it can be difficult to rent a flat that allows animals, and owning an animal for its entire life is a serious and costly responsibility, and so cat cafes are a great solution to these problems.
It has also been proven that interacting with cats can lower high blood pressure, stress, and anxiety.
