From puppuccinos to dog-friendly restaurants, Brisbane is brimming with activities for doggos and their owners, but what about the cat lovers out there? What’s on offer in Brisbane for those of us who prefer pets of the feline persuasion?
Rest assured, in this vibrant city, there are plenty of activities on offer for both dog and cat lovers. We’ve collected some pawsome events around Brisbane for you and your cat loving friends.
1. Cat Yoga
You can’t get much more relaxing than a meditative yoga session, but what happens when you add cats? Cat yoga may seem like a novel idea, but it is actually very popular. A study published in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Neurology in 2009 found that owning a cat can reduce your risk of having a stroke or heart attack by a third! Add in a peaceful session of yoga with your feline friends and you have even more paw-sitive outcomes.
In Brisbane, you can choose from two different locations to pur-fect your cat pose and learn from the masters of a quality of stretch – the Cat Cuddle Cafe in Lutwyche and the Lucky Cat Cafe in Annerley.
2. Events with Cats!
If cat yoga isn’t your thing, how about getting crafty with cats? Along with cat yoga, the Cat Cuddle Cafe also offers a range of great art and craft activities as well as some other fun events. From colouring and crocheting with cats to magic and meditation with cats, there really is something for everyone. Held on a Thursday night, the Cat Cuddle Cafe provides supplies and ‘furcilitators’ to make every event one to remember. Purchase your tickets to the events on offer at the Cat Cuddle Cafe here.
Meet with other cat-loving Brisbane residents at the Brisbane Crazy About Cats Meetup. Take this time to show off your cat videos and photos while making some new friends. The motto of this group is being a “crazy cat person should be a badge of honour that you can wear with pride”. Events are posted through Meetup, so be sure to sign up to the group to get the latest information about upcoming events.
Just outside of Brisbane, every cat lovers dream event is hosted on the Gold Coast. Described as ‘The Coolest Cat Event Ever’ The Carrara Cat Carnival was first held in 2017 as Australia’s first ever cat celebration. The event will be back again this year on June 29 and 30. The event includes cat breed showcase, cat exhibitors, cat adoptions and a whole heap of cat activities. What more could you ask for?!
