Cat cafes became a popular trend in Asia, and that love of cats and coffee has spread to the U.S. The TreeTops Kitty Cafe has opened in Kennett Square, and like most cat cafes, TreeTops is a nonprofit, with all proceeds and donations going toward operating costs and rescuing animals.
Upon arrival, visitors pay $5 to enter the kitty pen, where they can mingle, pet and cuddle the many kittens and cats that roam about. Over at the café, there a variety of coffees, teas from Mrs. Robinson’s Tea Shop and local baked goods from Sweet Magnolia Bakery, in addition to a variety of snacks for purchase. Visitors can also pack their own snacks.
If you need to stock up for your soon-to-be jealous pet back home, there are a variety of cat necessities like toys, catnip, beds, food and litter available for purchase.
Most of the cats and kittens are up for adoption, so if you fall in love, you can apply for adoption. Or, make a habit of visiting and get to know the cafe’s permanent resident, Panda.
TreeTops is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m.–5 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.–7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.–3 p.m.
