Snow, he looks tiny here.

If you want to interact with the cats it might be a good idea to plan a visit before meal time. When you visit a cat after a meal they tend to be sleeping. Not all of them, but most cats like to nap after a meal. I went to The Dancing Cat for another Henna Tattoo Event and most of the cats were asleep. I couldn’t even identify all of the cats because some of them were just passed out. Some cats don’t mind being bothered while they are sleeping but some do . . . and either way it is not very nice to bother them. One was looking around and I tried to get a picture and she turned her head clearly not into it so I left her alone. I managed to get a quick picture of two of the other sleeping felines. There were about four that were walking around. Currently they have nine for adoption. When I visited there were at least 10 with the tenth one on schedule to be delivered to his forever home on Sunday. He was one of the ones walking around and he was a big ol’ sweetie.

Snow, again, he has beautiful markings!

Here is a breakdown of the cats I was able to get pictures of; Snow – the boy off to his forever home (at the time of this posting), Ruby, a tiny little treasure of a black cat, Layla – who never opened her eyes, Monique, who was wandering around, and Penny, who was passed out in the Sanctuary.

 

 

 

 

I don’t even know the current exact count of how many cats The Dancing Cat has adopted out. I know it is over 300. That is a lot of cats for a thing that started out as a pop-up. It was only going to be opened for about six months.  And it closed down temporarily for a few months, but it re-opened and is going strong.

Tiny Ruby.

They have all kinds of events; yoga, Mew-sic, cat photography, birthday parties, henna tattoos, cat education talks, even escape rooms!

The “I Knead My Mommy” book had “The Lap” poem in it.  I found both the title of the book and the poem to be very funny!

 

 

 

 

 

 

My henna is the flowery one, I hadn’t even thought about a “Halloween themed” one, but here is one that she did.

I do hope if you are ever in the area and feel the need to visit with cats you will check it out. If you are local and you like cats and want to help support the safe housing and adoption of cats, schedule a visit with the cats or attend one of the many events The Dancing Cat hosts.   With that you get the benefit of the event you decide to attend AND a visit with the cats.

Have you made it to The Dancing Cat? Do you have a cat cafe/lounge in your area?
