First Cat Café in Texas Coming to Dallas!

Okay, it’s a pop-up cat cafe for the month of August but still very exciting news for Dallas feline lovers given the only other Cat Café in the works is in Austin several hours away!

The Cat Connection Cat CafeThe Cat Connection, a locally based woman-owned pet supply store and cat hotel and spa will be hosting cats and kittens for four weekends beginning August 8th!  Each weekend a different local rescue will provide adoptable cats and kittens for cat lovers to come play with (and hopefully adopt!).

Errin West, co-owner of The Cat Connection believes the café will be, “A great opportunity for cat lovers in the area to connect with and interact with adoptable animals in a relaxed setting, hopefully increasing adoptions for local rescue groups.”

Visitors will be able to indulge in complimentary coffee drinks and treats from a local caterer all four weekends. It’s first come first serve, with guests getting approximately 20 minutes to lounge and play with the cats and kittens (maybe longer depending on the wait!).

And wait, there’s more! On opening day they will also have the chance to mingle with Instagram “Celebricat” The Sauerkraut Kitty!

There is no charge though donations are encouraged and 100% of proceeds will go to that week’s local rescue group.  Children are welcome as long as accompanied by a guardian. Check out for more specifics on times and other FAQs.

If you go be sure to take lots of photos and post them the I HAVE CAT FB page  so we can see how much fun you’re having (and see the cats of course!)!

      Thank you so much for sharing this, and any additional information, so that we can act on it. We need to let them know we care and that we will not let criminals get away with their (worst of all) crimes.

    As my dad’s family spent several generations in TX, I’m personally connected to the state and hope that this will be a big boost for cats there.

  • i’d like to open cat cafe in my country. However, i am currently looking for people experience and suggestions
