River Kitty Cat Cafe in Evansville Opens Multi-Purpose Event Room
There is a little cafe in Indiana with a big heart... and a lot of cats, and it is now home to the city's newest rentable party space.
Coffee? Tea? Me?
There are few places quite as magical as a coffee shop. In fact, some might argue that the only thing more magical than a coffee shop is a coffee shop that houses homeless cats looking for their forever humans. That is exactly what you will find at River Kitty Cat Cafe located in the heart of downtown Evansville.
Hang With the Cool
For a small fee, you can purchase time inside the River Kitty Cat Lounge where you can pet and cuddle the resident kitties living out their coffee lounge life. At any given time there are approximately sixteen cats from the Vanderburgh Humane Society that are housed inside the lounge as they await the perfect human to adopt them and take them home.
