Make some feline friends onboard de Poezenboot
The world’s only floating cat sanctuary, de Poezenboot has been moored to the side of Singel canal in central Amsterdam since the 1960s. Housed inside a custom-built houseboat, de Poezenboot cares for dozens of stray or abandoned cats, many of whom are very affectionate and eager to make new friends. De Poezenboot welcomes cat lovers of all ages abroad several times per week and encourages visitors to play with (some) of its feline residents, partly to help them acclimatise to unfamiliar people. Word to the wise though, de Poezenboot isn’t huge and sadly can’t accommodate larger groups.
