So this is probably just about the greatest place in all of Christchurch. A café with cats… What more could anyone ask for? [Featured Image: @catnapcafe, Instagram].
Catnap Café is the first and only one of its kind in Christchurch. This Sydenham spot is the perfect place to relax, have a hot drink and pet the wonderful cats running around.
You can grab an entire range of vegan grub plus some wonderful drinks to enjoy among the cats. You’ll be contributing to a great cause, as Catnap Café is part of Cat Rescue Christchurch.
The cat café not only helps provide a home to the many friendly rescue cats in the city, but also presents an opportunity to find a new loving home. Most of the cats you see at the shop will or have been adopted by the Christchurch community. So, if you see a little cute cat you love, you could take it home one day!
If you discuss with Catnap Café in advance, you could even have a small birthday party at the shop. Imagine that, a cat-filled birthday. Maybe you could even use that day to start an adoption process! If not, we’re sure playing with the cats will be a great birthday either way!
Entry to the café costs $12 for adults and $10 for children. Booking in advance is not essential but is recommended, due to limited space. Head to the Catnap website for all required details and FAQs.
