I finally did it! I visited the most charming cafe in Paris and it was more than puurrrfect. Okay, that was bad I’m sorry ;) But, do you still remember my post a long long time ago, when I told you that Paris would have their own cat-cafe?! I won’t blame you if you don’t remember it anymore because that was in 2013… I feel a bit ashamed that it took me so long to visit my little friends in Paris but, it was worth the waiting.
The first thing I saw when I arrived at the cafe were a few little pink noses curled up behind the window. The urge was to big for me to pet them. So I had to go inside as quick as I could go. For the hygiene I had to disinfect my hands before I could take place between the cats.
Their is a ground floor and a basement. The basement looked like an old cave, it was so cozy! It reminded me a bit of Shakespeare and company, an old English bookstore in Paris. Only here it was filled with a lot of cats instead of books, even better if you ask me!
All the food on the menu is organic and home made. You have to try the ‘romeo and julia’ tea, it was delicious. The best part still has to come…*drum-rolls*… it’s forbidden to feed the cats, so you can keep all the food for yourself and you won’t fall for their irresistibly puppy eyes.
I want to give a big applause to the owner of cafe des chats, Margaux Gandelon. She really made a great home for these little friendly creatures. There were many cozy corners, tunnels, baskets, pillows and of course leather sofas where they can scratch all day! For me it was hard to believe that all these pretty cats where abandoned, found on the streets and adopted from shelters. I still don’t understand why humans can be so mean to leave these cats on their own. Gladly these cats were lucky and found a warm home with the love and attention they deserve, but there are still a lot of cats that wait for a home. So, I hope that everyone who want to buy a cat (or dog) don’t forget about all the lonely animals in the shelters. They are just as great as any other animal and ready to be petted.
If you want to visit cafe des chats, it’s advisable to make a reservation because the cats are really popular. It would be a shame if it’s full when you’re there. Oh, and don’t forget to read the rules about cafe des chats on their website. For example: sleeping cats may not be petted and you can take photo’s but without a flash!
