On Jan. 20, Greenville’s new Organic Cat Café will hold its grand opening. The café is now open to the public, and held a soft opening on Mon. Nov. 20.

The Organic Cat Café offers a safe learning environment where people can experience what cats are like. The café offers a variety of organic drinks, smoothies, and snacks.

Ridley Crane, a TR sophomore and employee of the café, said, “The café adopts cats from full shelters. Cats can also be boarded at the café over vacation.”

For an even more unique visit, customers can attend a ‘Cat Yoga’ class, which is exactly what it sounds like. Participants stretch out on mats and take part in a yoga class in a room full of cats.

Jennifer Bronzel, the owner of the café, says, “We are currently working with six of South Carolina’s local shelters.”  Resident cats are chosen based on personality, so that visitors are ensured to have a pleasant experience. Most of the cats are permanent residents, but the café has cats up for adoption as well. Visitors under 18 years old must have a parent signed waiver to get in.

The café is located at 123 College Street, and runs from 11:11 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day.
