Great Kitten’s vision is to recreate a rustic, homey atmosphere complete with fireplace and comfortable sofa’s “ Our firm belief is that the combination of a delicious drink, purring cats to keep you company, and a great movie is the ultimate escapism from London’s rat race and an unparalleled way to relax and unwind.”

Spend time with a cat  before deciding to adopt, a great way to know if you are the right fit for each other.

The main goal of the Great Kitten is to promote cat adoptions in London and the UK by working with local cat charities and partner shelters. They also plan to host workshops and seminars on site and in schools in hopes of promoting and encouraging cat welfare.  The Great Kitten will also go one step further by giving back to the community by offering free animal therapy, from the resident cats, one afternoon per week to children and adults who suffer from physical or mental disabilities.

Staff will always be on hand to oversee that both cats and humans are having a safe and fun time.

In all of this it is very good to see that the cats safety and well-being comes first with rules for people to follow to ensure the cat-friendly space stays that way. The cats will also have permanent access to a human free zone should they need a break from all the attention.
