Six Cats Under: A Haven for Feline Lovers
Are you a cat lover looking for a cozy and charming café to spend time with your furry friends? Look no further than Six Cats Under, a popular cat café located in downtown Seattle. This unique spot is a haven for anyone who loves cats- whether you’re a seasoned cat owner or just an admirer of these adorable creatures!
Here are some reasons why Six Cats Under is a must-visit spot in Seattle:
The Cat Café Experience
The café concept may be new to some visitors, but the trend is quickly catching on. Cat cafes are designed to serve as a sanctuary where felines and humans can interact in a relaxing environment. In fact, these cafes were first introduced in Taiwan, where it was difficult for cat owners to keep cats.
At Six Cats Under, the cats have free reign of the main café area, where customers can sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, while feeling like the cats are their own. In addition to coffee and tea, the café also serves pastries, sandwiches, and other treats.
We all know that cats have a calming presence, but did you know that spending time with them can also be beneficial for your mental health? Studies have shown that pets can help reduce stress and anxiety, and Six Cats Under is no exception.
One visitor, Susan, says “I always leave Six Cats Under feeling so much more relaxed and stress-free. It’s amazing how much of a difference spending time with cats can make on your overall mood”.
Cuddles and Playtime
The cats at Six Cats Under are not just for show- they love to play! They are playful and love attention from their human visitors. Visitors can play with them in the play area, or simply find a cozy spot to hang out, relax, and watch the cats play.
Six Cats Under also has designated ‘snuggle time’ where visitors are encouraged to cuddle with the cats. According to the café’s website, “Plenty of cat snuggles have been known to completely turn ships around.”
At Six Cats Under, many of the cats are available for adoption, and all of them are rescue cats. If you’re looking to add a furry friend to your family, Six Cats Under can certainly provide that. Visitors are encouraged to fill out an adoption application, and the cats are given to loving forever homes.
This was the case with one of the café’s most popular cats, Orville. “He was a little skittish when we first found him,” says Abigail, one of the café’s founders. “But with a little love and patience, he transformed into the affectionate feline he is today.”
A Unique Business Model
Six Cats Under is a unique business model. The café homes its cats on the premises, giving visitors the chance to interact with them in a natural setting. But behind the scenes, the café also provides the cats with veterinary care, food, and shelter. While entrance fees and café purchases go some way towards covering the expenses, the café also relies on donations and volunteers.
All of the cats are up-to-date on vaccinations, and the café enforces strict grooming and hygiene protocols. This includes regularly washing and disinfecting all the toys and equipment.
Six Cats Under prides itself on being an inclusive environment, welcoming visitors of all ages and abilities. The café is ADA compliant, with ramp access, wide paths, and low counters. They also understand that pets are an important part of many LGBTQ+ families and are welcome at the café too.
The café has recently introduced a ‘senior hour’ where visitors aged 60 and up can come to the café, enjoy discounted drinks and pastries while spending some quality time with the cats.
If you’re a cat lover, or simply want to enjoy a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, Six Cats Under is a must visit. Apart from spending time with the feline pals, visitors also have the chance to make a difference in their lives by adopting them. With a varied menu, cozy ambiance, and the opportunity to contribute to a good cause, the café is sure to draw visitors and cat lovers alike.
So if you’re strolling downtown Seattle, make sure that visiting Six Cats Under is on your to-do list. Time with a coffee and the cats, what can be more relaxing?
