Cat Cafe

Cat lovers in Chicago, mark your calendars - the city's first cat cafe is opening its doors at the end of July.

On Friday, July 28 at 10:00 a.m., the city of Chicago's first-ever cat cafe is opening its doors.

This flagship cat cafe will be located in the Tree House Humane Society's brand new, multi-million dollar shelter facility.

Located at 7225 N. Western Ave., the Tree House Humane Society is credited as being the largest cat-focused shelter in the state of Illinois.

While enjoying a hot or cold beverage, the public is invited to get to know the cafe cats, all of which are available for adoption through the new shelter.

In the future, visitors and potential adopters will need to make an appointment before their visit to the new facility, but until that time cats will be closely monitored by staff to make sure they're not getting overstimulated.

In addition to the cat cafe and adoption center, the brand new Tree House facility will include a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic, ensuring that all adoptable cats that come through the animal shelter doors receive the best care possible.
