On August 11th, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, by unanimous vote proclaimed September 8, 2020 as “Orlando Cat Café Day” in Lake County, Florida.
“We are both thrilled and humbled by this honor,” says Sandra Cagan, founder and owner of The Orlando Cat Café. “While we can’t celebrate in person this year, we invite visitors to bring a donation from the SPCA Florida wish list anytime between September 5th – 8th and they will receive a pass to return for free another day. Additionally, on Official Cat Café Day, September 8th, visitors will receive $4 admission all day long.”
The Orlando Cat Café was the first Cat Café to open in the State of Florida and to date has welcomed over 70,000 visitors from all over the world. The Orlando Cat Café houses between 12-20 cats and kittens, all of which are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and available for adoption. The Orlando Cat Café is located at 532 Cagan Park Avenue in the Cagan Crossings Town Center, about 4 miles west of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
