Resisting that adorable furry face while hanging out at Meow Parlour might be a little harder this week.
For the first time since opening in December, the city's only cat cafe — where visitors can play with cats while eating baked goods and drinking coffee — is fostering kittens, Meow Parlour announced. The adorable, adoptable fur babies will stay at the cafe until Sept. 19.
The cafe, located at 46 Hester St., typically takes in slightly older and tough-to-adopt cats from KittyKind, a volunteer run, no-kill rescue group that works with Meow Parlour to help the felines find their forever homes, said cafe co-founder Emilie Legrand.
The kittens, which are between 12 and 14 weeks old, joined the cafe’s 10 older foster cats Wednesday night, Legrand said. They will appear at Adoptapalooza, an event where nearly 300 dogs, cats and rabbits will be up for adoption.
“We’re kind of showcasing them,” Legrand said.
Adoptapalooza will take place Sunday at Union Square Park.
