What you'll do
Once you arrive you will have the opportunity to order coffees, teas, and macarons that will then be delivered to you from our partner cafe Olivia Macaron. Then you will enter a magical space filled with 30 free-roaming adoptable cats who were all rescued from the risk of euthanasia or homelessness. I will introduce you to the cats and tell you about their backstories and personalities while showing you how to interact with each cat. Many of our cats are kittens who love to play. We have a variety of different toys that you have to choose from if you want to play, or you can just lay down on one of our fluffy cushions and snuggle with many of our cuddly cats. Your visit is not only fun but also helps to provide a comfortable space for our cats as well as socialize them until they are adopted. As of December 2018 we have adopted out over 850 cats and saved over 1800 cats from euthanasia.

I am the Store Leader of Crumbs & Whiskers, Washington DC's only Cat Cafe Experience. I have had a passion for cats since as long as I can remember and my goal is to share that passion with others. My goal is to help people connect with cats and learn about their individual personalities and really understand how different each of them is. By housing them in an enriching, comfortable space, our cats are able to feel at home while they wait to be adopted.
