Top 10 Cat Cafes in the U.S.

Cat cafes aren't just for humans to enjoy. It's perfectly fine to visit without the intention of adopting a new pet, but the ultimate goal of cat cafes is to find homes for the many stray cats in need.

Anyone who hasn't visited a cat cafe has been missing out. Cat cafes originated in Taiwan, but cat cuddling is a worldwide pastime. The idea spread quickly in the United States, and there are now cat cafes in almost every state.

Cat Town is one of America's coolest cat cafes because they take rescue to the next level. Cat Town is a registered nonprofit that collaborates with Oakland's shelter to find loving foster homes and forever families for homeless cats.

KitTea does an outstanding job of making a genuine difference. Their team believes that all cats, even those who haven't been socialized, are adoptable. People who appear to be the least lovable, like cats, often require the most love.
