Known for rainy weather and the Seattle freeze, sometimes you just need to escape the cold human world and enter the adorable and bright land of kitties.
Seattle’s first cat cafe, Seattle Meowtropolitan, is open and ready for animal encounters. The lounge is open from 11 am to 9 pm and is home to up to 25 cats.

Unlike most cat cafes, the coffee room and cat lounge are kept separate. In the cat lounge, staff work towards educating visitors about the cats’ needs for loving homes. They work with the Regional Animal Services of King County and aim to foster great relationships between cats and humans.
While most cats are up for adoption, six resident cats have made Meowtropolitan their forever home. The friendly sextet is always around to welcome you into the cafe, where you can meet their ten to fifteen adoptable friends.
A 50-minute session with the cats will run you $13 and includes one drink. The cat cafe is only open to those who are age eight and over, and requires an online reservation.
The cafe also offers various other ways to hang out with the cats, such as yoga with cats and paint nights.
Cat yoga — yoga with cats — takes place every week and costs $20 per class. Membership is $80 a month, while a five-pack of courses is $75. The courses take place weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Course schedules can be found online.

Purr and Paint, a monthly event, is also known as wine night at the cat cafe. The instructor-led event comes with snuggles from cats and a glass of wine, tea, or Italian soda. The two-hour event costs $38.85 per person.
On the first Saturday of every month, the cat cafe along with the Regional Animal Services of King County welcomes kids under the age of eight and their guardians into the cat lounge to be educated on how to safely interact with cats, as well as how to create a comfortable living environment for the cats. The family event takes place at 11 am and is $12 per person.
