Ferndale, MI – The world is full of cats and kittens that need love, and the Ferndale Cat Shelter is among the rescue organizations that tries to find homes for those that need them.
The Catfe Lounge is located at 821 Livernois, Ferndale MI 48220. It’s basically a room full of cats that you can play with with while you also enjoy coffee.
Interacting with humans helps the cats socialize and the environment makes for a more relaxed way to find an adoptable kitty than at traditional shelters. If a kitty feels a connection to a person it can simply walk right up and start purring. There is also plenty of room for the cats to hide if they don’t want to play or be petted.
One cool feature of the Catfe is that the foyer has clear ceiling that serves as a shelf for the cats. As people walk in they can look up and possibly see adorable little paws or furry bellies overhead.
The selection of cats changes regularly and there are over 40 in the Ferndale Cat Shelter system. Many are in foster homes off site. For hours, fees and more information, check out their website www.ferndalecatshelter.org.
Here are some pictures from our recent visit. Please share to help these fine felines find homes!
