Sydney Cat CaféMaggie’s Rescue and Purina bring back Sydney’s cutest pop up!

Partnering once again with animal welfare organisation Maggie’s Rescue and joining forces with Nestle Purina, Sydney Cat Café is set to bring back Sydney’s cutest pop up on August 6th.

This time it’s Sydney’s Gaffa Galleries that will play host to the city’s cutest inhabitants - a pride of baby felines looking for their forever homes.

The first pop up kitten cafe booked out within a day, prompting Sydney Cat Café’ (SCC) founder Veronica Morland to promise disappointed hopefuls a repeat of the cute-splosion.

“Our first pop up put smiles on the faces of hundreds of Sydney cat-lovers, and even better, a dozen of our furry stars were adopted to loving homes,” Morland said.

The second installment, held from August 6-8 and 13-15, will admit 20 people over the age of eight at a time for 45-minute cuddle sessions with adorable kittens - and one surprise guest.

This time around, Nestle Purina has come on board as a partner of the event, providing PETLIFE and TOTAL CARE toys, bedding and accessories to make the kittens extra comfortable. These items will be donated to Maggie’s Rescue following the pop up.

Nestle Purina’s Country Business Manager Lal Meyer said: “We’re proud to support not only a local business, but one that shares our vision of bringing awareness to cats in need of adoption at rescue organisations.”

Having achieved 120% of its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, SCC is set to become a permanent fixture in Sydney later this year.

Cat cafes are places where patrons pay an hourly tariff to enjoy the comforts and delights of a cafe in the company of cats.

Traditionally the cats are the permanent residents of the cafe, however the vision for SCC is to foster cats that are up for adoption by patrons.

Morland is also in discussions with several local producers of the array of homegrown goodies that will be on offer at the café.

With free wifi, comfy furniture and top notch fare, the ‘purr-manent’ café will be billed as the ideal date spot, study environment and private function venue.
