Pop Up Cat Cafe for the Washington Humane Society this Thurs. at Rock and Roll Hotel


From an email:

“Just in time for the holidays Rock&Roll Hotel is hosting a Pop-Up Cat Cafe to bring kitty cuteness, craft cocktails and cat lovers together for a fun evening to raise money for the Washington Humane Society.

The Pop-Up will occupy the 2nd floor utilizing the different rooms for cat reading, snuggling, educating and friendly mingling. The two VIP rooms will be the official cat quarters where the cats are the new VIPs with cat condos, toys and treats. Here guests will be able play with, cuddle, and enjoy some intimate time with free roaming adoptable cats brought in from from Kitty City at WHS’s New York Avenue adoption center.

The Piano Lounge at the Hotel will be converted into a cat reading room and will allow an opportunity to preview the carefully selected cat literature that will be for sale during the event. (Think: amazing holiday gifts..for a great cause!)

As a very special bonus the Pop-Up will be raffling off 2 TICKETS for the Winter Classic NHL game at Nationals Park on January 1st.

All merchandise and raffle profits will go directly to the WHS.

The WHS will be on site to talk to guests and help answer questions about options for adoptions and fostering of cats and kittens.”

There will be no cover charge for the event.”

  • This could be a not-so-great idea. I hope they clean those rooms really well afterwards for those of us with cat allergies. It’s easy to avoid a cat cafe – harder to avoid effects from pop-ups as allergic folks may want to go to the RnR Hotel post-cats.

  • This seemed like a fun idea to me at first, but I saw over 200 people RSVP’d and only 6 cats are going to be there. How much time will people even have to play with them (if at all) with that many people, and will the cats be overwhelmed?

    • I was going to go until I saw that over 200 ppl RSVP’d on FB (myself being one of them). I love the idea of a cat café, but the RNR Hotel is dirty and dark and loud. And I think that cat cafes are supposed to have cat-to-human ratios, and this one clearly does not. Frankly, it sounds cruel.
