One cat cafe isn’t enough! Vancouver’s newest and most magical, forest-themed cat cafe, Catoro, will be open for business this July 29, 2019.

Similar to the O.G. Cat Cafe in Dowtown Vancouver, Catoro will act as a temporary housing unit for rescue cats while also offering up some delicious bubble tea.
