Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, Amsterdam just opened its own cat cafe, where people can go for coffee and to stroke a cat.
The cafe, named Kopjes, opened its doors in the Baarsjes district West of the city centre on April 22.
The cat cafe concept originated in Taiwan in 1998 and since then cat petting cafes have opened in New York, London, Paris and other cities.
The café has eight resident cats, chosen from the city’s two animal shelters. Customers will pay a €3 entrance fee, entitling them to two hours of cat entertainment. In total, 975 people contributed a total of €33,000 to make the cafe a reality.
