Stray and homeless kitties find shelter at this Western location. Not only do they work as a fun tourist attraction, but they also serve as an adoption center. The exterior of this location has an awesome, and completely Instagram-able, cat mural. Besides kind hearted nature and wickedly creative decorations of the location, they also have some delicious Texan food on the menu. So stop by, get some savory treats, and maybe pick up a new friend?

Cats mixed with a fairytale themed cafe - what more could you want? While you are there, you can order from a large menu of fun treats. From their drinks, desserts and meals - they all look like something that would come out of a whimsical world that we could only read about.

Paris’ first cat focused cafe open in 2013. Due to a boom in popularity, they opened another location - one in the Marais and the other in Bastille. Even thought they have two locations, you still have to make reservation in order to attend! Le Cafe des Chats was originally an outpost and the owners transformed the location into a cozy, brick-lined hot spot. There are currently a dozen of cats who were adopted and permanently reside at the location. If you are a frequent customer, you may just befriend a new feline friend.
