BROOKLYN — Attempt to regain your sanity as the election results roll in by cuddling up with some feline friends Tuesday night in Brooklyn Heights.

The Brooklyn Cat Cafe, at 149 Atlantic Ave., will be hosting an election night “comfort” party from 8 p.m. to midnight.  

The cafe, where about a dozen adoptable cats roam free, will be screening the election results on a projector, as well as some funny cat videos interspersed throughout to “help reduce the tension,” a listing for the event said.

The watch party is meant to bring a sense of humor to what’s been a tumultuous election season, said Anne Levin, president Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, which runs the cafe.

“It’s been kind of a traumatic election season,” Levin said. “The cat cafe is a comforting place, kind of a zen environment.”

The cafe will provide snacks and drinks, including beer from Brooklyn Brewery, and guests can play with the cats as needed for election night support.

Newt — the cafe’s mascot cat, who will be dressed up as Wonder Woman — will also be giving kisses to anyone who comes in with proof that they voted.

“Newt supports voting,” Levin said.

Tickets cost $30 in advance or $35 at the door, and seating is limited. The proceeds will support medical and dental work for some of the cafe’s cats.

The watch party is open to guest 21 and over. To purchase tickets, visit CatCafeBK.com.

For those who can't make it out Tuesday night, the Brooklyn Cat Cafe's 24/7 Live Kitten Cam will be streaming all night.
