“Free the Cats” – Vandal Daubs These Words on London’s Best Known Cat Café — 3 Comments

  1. Given the British culture of allowing cats to have an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, they might mistakenly think of the cats as being imprisoned.

    How lovely that the cafe hope to find an aspiring artist to paint a mural over the graffiti. It’s the perfect response and can only win them more supporters.

    • Michele, your assessment is very neat and is almost certainly on the button. I suppose the question is: are the cats truly imprisoned?

      • I don’t consider them imprisoned. The cafe is situated in a busy area and I don’t think local traffic would be safe for the cats to go outside unsupervised. I’m sure the cats are living happier lives than they would in a shelter.

        From what I understand, 8 of their 11 cats are related to each other and the remaining 3 were all friends with them at the shelter. I like that the cafe owners selected a group of cats already sociable with each other.

        I’m curious to know what happens do the cats outside of business hours? Do they go home with the employees or does someone live with them at the cafe full time? I had a look on their web site but couldn’t seem to find that info.
