The People who dreamed of the Cat Adoption Cafe
Why a cat cafe for Wellington?
Ken and Richelle Okada have visited cat cafes around the world during their time as international teachers. They knew when they settled for good in New Zealand that a cat cafe would be a good thing. Some people live in rented accommodation and landlords are reluctant to allow cats. Others are apartment dwellers who don’t feel they have enough room for a cat to play. For these people a cat cafe is the perfect place to get their ‘kitty fix’.
It is also a vitally important way for cats to be carefully and safely re-homed – with all the fees and checks this en’tails’. The cat cafe will be helping contain the stray cat population, which is a human fault after all! They work alongside The Outpawed Rescue Trust and Feral Nation who focus on strays and TNR, as well as local cat rescues.
