Soon, dreams of sipping on coffee, eating pastries and being surrounded by cats will become a reality. Opening later this month, the Windy Kitty Cat Cafe and Lounge has its first cats in house. Coffee, tea and pastries will be provided by the Gallery Cafe, a coffee shop just up the street at 1746 W. North Avenue. The lattes have cat faces on the top of them, but tea, sodas, and smoothies will also be available for those who don’t drink coffee.
The cats come from Alive Rescue in Roscoe Village, and are available for adoption, the cafe providing a great space to meet a new best friend. Since getting the cats in house, the Windy Kitty has been hosting events like a cat yoga session and a painting class. The space includes plenty of seats for guests to lounge with the cats, along with plenty of cat scratchers, toys, spaces for the cats to get some alone time, and a cat tree.
When it opens, the Windy Kitty will be the first cat cafe, not including the Catcade in Lakeview that serves drinks. Check out the photos below of the new cat cafe (and plenty of cat pictures) and stay tuned for an opening date.
