'Caturday: Philadelphia 'Cat Food

We had a Philly theme on the library blog this week so, hey, let’s continue the trend and kick off August with a Philly ‘Caturday. I’ve listed a few cafes in the area that feature cats in one way or another.

A Philadelphia first, Kawaii Kitty Cafe, a kitty cafe that houses adoptable cats, is coming soon to the Old City section. Check out their Facebook page to track their progress toward opening day! (You can help them along by kicking in some cash on IndieGogo.)

Contact PAWS or wait for the Kawaii Kitty Cafe to open if you're interested in adopting a cat!

According to the Rocket Cat Cafe‘s Facebook page, they feature “delicious locally roasted fair trade and organic coffee and espresso drinks, local vegan and non-vegan leisure foods, and a wide variety of real food- made on site, to order.” They also post cute photos of kitties and have cool cat-themed artwork in the cafe. (Mayor Nutter drank coffee here!)

If you’re looking for a place with more food offerings, try the Blue Cat, a Latin inspired kitchen. It’s located in the Fairmount/Art Museum neighborhood. They explain on their website that the “eponymous “BlueCat” is our very own Kitty, a domestic grey foundling who thinks he is a Russian Blue. The BlackCat is his sweet little brother, Lovie. We found him too.”

The Black Cat Cafe is about 20 miles west of Philadelphia, on the Main Line, but its mission, to turn “out some of the best sandwiches, salads and desserts around, while helping countless abandoned and homeless animals find new homes” fits right in with our theme.

Contact PALS (The Pet Adoption and Lifecare Society), a nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to rescuing pets, or visit the Black Cat Cafe to help rescue pets from the streets or from euthanasia at a high-kill shelter.

We have excellent resources on animal ethics, but you can also contact the Ethics subject librarian, Rob LeBlanc, or the Philosophy subject librarian, Nikolaus Fogle.

And whether you visit a cat cafe, research animal rights, or consume a latte with a cat on your lap, we hope you and the pets you care about have a Happy ‘Caturday!
