This cat café is located in Madrid, Spain. It is a member of the Asociación Benéfica por el Rescate e Inserción de Gatos en Adopción, a nonprofit aimed at helping cats get adopted and promoting understanding of proper cat care. This means that La Gatoteca’s 11 felines are up for adoption. They also offer courses for best practices in feline care. This café is supported entirely by donation. In addition to serving caffeinated beverages, La Gatoteca also offers craft workshops, live music, and even yoga classes all in the company of cats. Because La Gatoteca aims to educate and promote relationships with the cats, patrons are charged not by drink but by amount of time spent with the cats. Who knows, maybe you’ll pay a visit and end up leaving with a new feline friend in tow.
