Las Vegas finally joins the ranks of San Diego, Atlanta, Chicago, and Montreal with a cat cafe to call its own.
Rescued Treasures Cat Cafe opens on Tuesday with a small roster of kittens for playing and adopting pleasure. Kittens on hand include Opal, a calico; Peter and Benjamin, orange tabbies with white markings; Jewel with brown and orange tabby markings on white; and Diamond with black and a little orange.
The cat cafe, from PALNV, houses the cats, and the organization feeds and cares for the kittens until they find a new home.
Visitors can play with the cats and eat a beverage or snack for $10 for one hour, or $14 for 90 minutes. Fans can buy memberships for $10 a month for four sessions a year with a guest up to $1,200 a year for 12 sessions with seven guests.
Every Wednesday for $15 from 7 to 9 p.m., the cat cafe offers a different type of bonding session with free soda, coffee, tea, or water, snack, and free WiFi. Aug. 7 brings crafts with cats. Aug. 14 offers a chess match, and game night featuring Battleship, checkers, poker, Jumanji, Trivial Pursuit, and card games takes place on Aug. 21. Yoga, starting at 7:30 p.m. for $30 for 45 minutes, runs on Aug. 28.
Meow or Never planned to open in the Arts District last year but scrapped those plans.
