Tri-State's First Cat Cafe Coming Later this Year

Attention cat lovers: a new cafe is planning to open in downtown Evansville and it could be right up your alley. River Kitty Cat Cafe is coming to Evansville, if you're cat person you may be getting excited.

"I think its a wonderful idea,” said Jessica Vowells.
"Its different,” said Keith Crowder.

A cat cafe serves drinks and food but you'll be hearing a lot of meowing when you go there. Bigger cities like Indianapolis have these cafes and they seem to be the cats meow.

"That would be something that I would want to do, probably everyday,” said Vowells.

People like Jessica Vowels can't wait but others still aren't sure about sharing a cup of coffee with a feline.

"It doesn't really interest me and I'm a cat person, I like cats,” said Crowder.

Although Keith may not want the company of a kitten while eating his lunch River Kitty Cat Cafe will be helping animal shelter cats find new homes.

"So people can go and eat with the cats and then adopt them if they want to,” said Vanderburgh Humane Society Amanda Coburn.

Amanda Coburn with the Vanderburgh Humane Society can't wait for River Kitty to open so that cats at the cafe can meet potential owners.

"They will get more attention than they would here because the cat cafe might be open longer,” said Coburn.

Instead of so many cats roaming in the cat lounge at VHS, there are plans that they will be taking cat naps downtown on main street where the owner of River Kitty hopes to rent.

"We will make sure we take ones that are friendly like other cats and other people,” said Coburn.

You can find the river cities cat lovers in the cafe sometime later this year.
