Last weekend was the final weekend for the Dancing Cat cat cafe.
Tim and I went on Sunday to say farewell and to see this place, and the cats, one final time. It was hustling and bustling with lots of visitors that day as it was the last day they were going to be open. The Dancing Cat always was set up as a temporary pop up cat cafe and actually ended up staying open several months longer than they expected, but even knowing they were not going to be around for long, it was still awfully sad to see them go!
Because they were a lot busier than usual, I think the cats were especially tired that day. It was great to see though that most all of the cats there found placement in permanent homes and were just awaiting their next move. The Dancing Cat did such an amazing job while they were open! In fact, in their short time there they found loving permanent homes for 48 cats! :D :D :D
My heart was so sad though to see that while an amazing 48 cats found forever homes there were two beautiful great cats that did not, two cats that have been there every time we went to visit, Blanche and Dixie. I asked about what will happen to these two kitties. They will go back to the shelter they came from, Town Cats, a local no-kill shelter. I went to Town Cats' website and learned that Dixie and Blanche are both at the Petsmart in San Jose on Curtner Ave. where they can be seen by potential families to adopt them. I hope they will find forever homes soon. They were always so gentle, loving, and playful cats every time we saw them. I ask Tim every day if we can go get them but he thinks four cats in our small house will be too much. I keep asking but in the mean time, I hope they will find good homes soon.
|Welcome back to the Dancing Cat!|
|Where the couch is full of sleeping kitties|
|And there are even kitties on the walls|
|Dixie is snoozing away|
|Blanche is being zen|
|Oreo, the man with the mustache|
|Bonnie in the back hanging out|
|Blanche striking a pose|
|Oreo being inquisitive|
|Blanche is laying low checking things out|
|Everyone getting some snooze time|
|Dixie says, "What's that!" when a group of 5pm appointment people show up|
|I don't think she likes it|
|But she quickly settles back into her sleep|
|Oreo, being bad... No, just being a cat!|

|Gaston, one debonair man|

|Farewell Dancing Cat- what a great job you did! You will be missed!|
I'm so happy I was able to visit this wonderful cat place and get to know the kitties there and the lovely ladies that made this all happen. I wish everyone, human and kitty, lots of luck with what the future holds!
