Looking for cat cafes in Nebraska?
There was only one cat cafe in Nebraska at the time of writing this, but I can’t speak highly enough of Felius Cat Café & Rescue and what they do for the homeless cat population in Omaha.
Here is more on what they do and how you can help them with their mission to improve cat welfare and place more at-risk cats into forever homes.

Felius Cat Café & Rescue’s mission is, “to transform cat welfare through rescue, inclusive experiences, and educational programming.”
All of their free-roaming cats are available for adoption. If you’re not able to adopt, they’ll make do with some cuddles and interaction!
Felius Cat Café & Rescue have help placed almost 700 cats in new homes to date, which is a huge feat.
Entry fees go towards helping care for the cats in the cafe, so it’s money well spent. As Nebraska’s only cat cafe at the time of writing this, I recommend dropping by for an awesome experience.
What to Expect at a Cat Cafe
Every cat cafe is going to be slightly different and have its own rules. If you’ve never been to a cat cafe, however, I can help prepare you.
First of all, you should always check out their website for the latest news and info. You’ll also have to book a time slot, and might have to sign a waiver.
It’s important you know what a cafe’s rules are, as these are in place for the safety and wellbeing of the cat – and for you, of course.
As for when you’re at a cat cafe, you can expect to drink good coffee (or whatever drink you prefer), and nibble on some food as you would at any cafe.
The most obvious difference being that cats are roaming around the cafe!
Most cafe cats are from rescues and will have been selected because they are social and love human interaction.
How much interaction you get will depend on the cats at the cafe, but one thing I can guarantee about visiting a cat cafe – it’s a unique and fun experience!
How Cat Cafes Help At-Risk Cats
There is often the misconception that cat cafes are created for the entertainment of customers. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Every cat cafe I’ve reviewed found all of their cats at local rescues and used the cat cafe as an adoption center more than a profit-making business.
In addition to giving homeless cats a new home and an interactive lounge, cat cafes typically also put all of their cats up for adoption.
So, it’s more accurate to look at a cat cafe as a pet adoption business with the cafe aspect to get more customers through the door than it is a cafe with cats (if that makes sense).
If you want to do your part for homeless cats in your state, visiting a cat cafe is the best thing you can do.
You don’t have to be able to adopt one of their cats, any money you spend is going to go towards a good cause.
Plus, you get to hang out with cats, have good coffee and food, and enjoy a unique experience – it’s a win-win.
