Ontario’s first ever kitty cafe has opened in Guelph. For cat lovers (and all animal lovers), this is an opportunity that you won’t want to miss out on. Here are some reasons why you need to go downtown for this one-of-a-kind experience.
1. First Cat Cafe In Ontario
Apropos due to the world-class veterinarian college (OVC) at the University of Guelph.
2. Casual Atmosphere
It’s almost as if you are entering an exclusive hidden club, you have to find it by walking through the convenience store area, and the kitties are through doors at the back of the store.
Coffee is available at the front counter where you can also order a variety of teas, in the main area of the store you can find coconut water, soda, Gatorade, or whatever your hangover remedy of choice is.
4. The Standard Nom-Noms
Treats for humans include baked goods such as: cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and more. You can also buy chocolate bars, chips or whatever munchies you are feline (if you thought I wasn’t going for the puns, you’re wrong).
5. Great Take Out Options for Study Breaks
Kimchi fried rice, bulgogi, wraps, Sushi-to-go, sandwiches, and smoothies are available now and more will be available soon.
6. Spread the Love
My Kitty Cafe is in partnership with the Guelph Humane Society. All kittens and cats in the cafe are provided by the humane society and you can apply to adopt one and give it a home. On average, the cafe has located over 40 cats and kittens to new homes, on average over one per day since opening.
Beside always available for cuddles, spending time with animals are scientifically proven to help reduce stress levels, reduce blood pressure, and decrease risks of depression – just to name a few. Companionship with pets have shown such a dramatic improvement in human health that doctors are now coining the term “Vitamin P“. The P stands for pet’s unconditional love and affection. Thanks to My Kitty Cafe in Guelph, you can get some vitamin P to go!
