More than ever, I have been seeing things about cats. If you know me, I openly admit that I am a cat lady and enjoy spending my time with them.

I'm noticing that more people are having pets, referring to them as their fur children and bond with other animal lovers over their love for these beautiful beings.

Recently, I came across the largest cat "living it's best life" at a Hudson Valley farm. Cat lovers can visit that farm and take a trip to Greene County to see cat statues on display that were created by local artists.

What if you found out that not only one cat café, but two of them are now open in the Hudson Valley? I was excited when I heard the good news.

Have You Been To The Hudson Valley's Cat Cafes?

Beans Cat Café opened their first location in Beacon, NY. They use local ingredients and partnered with Mad Batters Pastries for their baked goods. Beans Cat Café has HEPA air filters to keep the facility clean. Those who visit will experience two sides of the cafe, they can spend time within the actual café and then head on over to the fun side, where all the kitties are. Their cat café can be described as,

"A cat cafe is a space where people come together with adoptable shelter cats."

Jessica and Justin Strika are the owners and operators of this loving cat cafe, they have adopted over 350 cats so far, which warms my heart. The adoptable cats in Beacon, NY are from HVARS, Hudson Valley Animal Rescue & Sanctuary.

Casper and Muppet are the newest celebrities of New Paltz, NY. There is an admission price to enter the cat lounge at only $7 per person for 30 minutes.
