Vacation Travels: Ferndale Catfe' Lounge








The Catfe' Lounge (more info here) is located in the city of Ferndale, in Metro Detroit.  The Lounge is part of The Ferndale Cat Shelter, and is specifically aimed at getting cats adopted by placing them in a open setting, where guests and prospective adopters can interact.  Tea and coffee are available, as well as wonderful sitting areas and plenty of cat toys.  The Catfe' Lounge has been open for years now, but last week was the first time I was able to visit, and I was please with how much the volunteers love the cats.  My friend BG (a cat lover with more cats than me!) and I came away knowing that this was a quality set up, and are proud of the work they do.

Anyone who wants to go to The Catfe' Lounge in Ferndale, Michigan...let me know!  I'll escort you there and we'll have a grand time.  While BG and I played with the kittens, a couple of young men dropped in, and they had cats in their laps in a twinkling of the eye!  I am sorry that I did not get the cats names for this post, but hopefully they've all been adopted now, and a new crop are in their place.

  1. Aw, those look like some happy kitties. A place called the Kittea Cafe opened here in San Francisco but the Human has not gone yet. I cannot IMAGINE anything more awful than having strangers paw me ::shudder:: I am NOT a friendly boy and if I was at a place like that it would be called The Blood Bank, ha ha ha meow!

  2. Oh, what a wonderful place! I can imagine how relaxing it would be to sit and drink your tea with a kitty on your lap.

  4. How wonderful. Wouldn't be great if all shelters had a cafe. Do they rotate the cats are keep them at the cafe until adopted?

  9. We love the idea of the cat cafe! There was one in town here but unfortunately it lasted only a few months.
