Dallas pop up Cat Cafe


Our friend Miss Tamar from I Have Cat is helping spread the word for a month long August Cat Cafe pop up in Dallas TX. For four weekends starting August 8th, there will be a pop up cafe located at The Cat Connection with adoptable cats available from Operation Kindness.

Below is their press release:

First Ever Dallas Cat Café at The Cat Connection

The Cat Connection, a locally based pet supply store and cat only hotel and spa, will be home to the first Cat Café in Dallas for four weekends starting Saturday August 8th, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

The Dallas Café will be a first for the DFW metroplex and will feature adoptable cats and kittens compliments of various local rescue groups. Guests will be able to play with cats on a first-come-first-serve basis for up to twenty minutes. Operation Kindness will provide adoptable cats and kittens for the Grand Opening on August 8th, and be on hand to facilitate adoptions. Donations are not required but are appreciated as they will go to support local rescue.

For their launch weekend, guests will have the opportunity to indulge in specialty coffee drinks and treats in addition to meeting a special guest of honor, internet “celebrate” Sauerkraut Kitty.

While popular in Japan for decades, cat cafés have become a reality in the United States within the last year. These cafes appeal to a wide audience from those who can’t have a cat due to rental restrictions or an allergic housemate; to those looking to adopt and want to interact more intimately out of their cages to order to get a better sense of a cat’s temperament.

Errin West, co-owner of The Cat Connection believes the café will be, “A great opportunity for cat lovers in the area to connect with and interact with adoptable animals in a relaxed setting, hopefully increasing adoptions for local rescue groups.”

The Cat Café will be open on Saturday August 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM CT. For more event details, please visit or follow them on social media. They are located at 14233 Inwood Road in Dallas.

To ensure both feline and human attendees have an enjoyable time, The Cat Connection asks that no outside animals be brought to the event. Children are allowed under an adult guardian’s supervision. A complete set of guidelines can be accessed at The Cat Connection's website:
