If you're in desperate need of some kitten hugs, this new Red Hill establishment has you covered. Aptly called the Cat Cuddle Cafe — what else? — everyone's new favourite place will take up residence on Musgrave Road. Well, it will if it meets its funding goal. Making a haven for mousers and their fans doesn't come cheap, you know.
Those pledging their hard earned cash for cats will be helping create a space that humans and kittens alike will never want to leave, with donations going towards crucial stuff like leases, insurance and permits. And catnip, scratching posts, fake mice and all the treats felines can eat, we assume. Of course, as well as indoor and outdoor play areas, there'll be a menu with food (we hear cat-shaped cookies), coffee and the like — but, admit it, that's not what anyone will really be going there for.
You'll also be assisting critters in need of affection and shelter, with the kitty hangout opening its doors to rescued tabbies and toms. Brisbane cat rescue Pussies Galore will be running the cafe in conjunction with the Animal Rescue Support Network, so you'll be snuggling with rescue cats from PG and other Brisbane rescue shelters. Yes, this is a cat cafe that not only showers patrons with feline fun, but makes a real difference to the animals it adores.
