Announcing: The River Kitty Cat Cafe!

02/20/2017 by: Amanda Coburn, Development Coordinator

We have an extremely exciting announcement to make!

Later in 2017, Evansville's very first cat cafe will be opening downtown... and it will exclusively feature Vanderburgh Humane Society cats up for adoption!

Cat cafes are becoming very popular across the world and in the U.S. River Kitty Cat Cafe will be only the third one in Indiana. Generally speaking, cat cafes are businesses that serve beverages and/or food, and then patrons can choose whether or not to eat in the cat area (usually for an additional fee.)

River Kitty is still in the early stages, and no opening date has been announced. One thing's for sure: this will be the purr-fect spot for cat lovers, and a wonderful opportunity for more people to see, and hopefully adopt, our VHS kitties. River Kitty will be located at 226 Main Street in downtown Evansville!

River Kitty recently held a Kickstarter campaign and successfully raised $25,000. Thanks to our generous community, River Kitty is that much closer to becoming a reality!
