Welcome!

To Pebbles Kitty Cat Café

We are the first cat café in Rotterdam. Pebbles Kitty Café is not like any other cozy café: we will have lovely cats running around our café while you are sipping your coffee or tea! The trend of cat cafés originated in Asia where people love cats, but usually cannot keep them in larger cities. For those who still feel the need to snuggle up to something fluffy once in a while, cat cafes are a great way to relax and feel the love of kitty cats. So come by and pay us a visit, because everyone deserves some snuggles and rest with our love balls. Cuz you’re worth it! We are open on Wednesdays till Saturdays, every day from 12 pm till 6 pm and on Sundays from 12 pm till 5 pm. 

 

Our cat café

Who are we?

At Pebbles Kitty Cat Café we will have 8 cats. All of our cats are adopted from regional shelters in The Netherlands. We believe that pet owners should always consider adoption over breeders, since there are already so many cats and kittens out there looking for a warm and welcoming home. There is so much love to go around, so why not share it with these little angels, who were waiting for a happy home for too long already? We strongly believe in “Adopt, don’t shop!”.

At Pebbles you can enjoy the company of these loving cats while treating yourself to some coffee and cake. In order to ensure that the cats are well taken care of and are provided with all the essentials that they need, we ask visitors to pay an entrance fee when they visit the café. You can see this as a necessary cat-tax. This entrance fee is charged per visitor and will be € 3,50. In contrast to other Dutch cat cafés your time at our café will not be limited. You can stay as long as you want. We want to give you that homey feeling that you would have when you will be sitting at home with your own cat! We will provide some fun board games, magazines and cozy chill corners! In short: the purrfect new hangout place of Rotterdam!

 

 

Nice to meet you

I'm Freddy

Pebbles Kitty Cat Café was initiated by me, Freddy. I’ve had cats for my entire life and just can’t get enough of my little furry friends. I’ve visited various cat cafés in other cultures and love the concept. Due to my growing love for cats and entrepreneurship I decided to start up a crowdfunding campaign to kick-start the first cat café in Rotterdam. I am very excited to start sharing the kitty love with other people! I personally have been growing up in Germany and have lived in the US and Austria. For the last 6 years I have been able to call The Netherlands my home. I have spent my student life and working life in Rotterdam and am truly in love with the city. Pebbles Kitty Cat Café is the perfect way of enriching one of the greatest Dutch cities with a pawsome new hang-out place for any cat lover.

 

Working with shelters

Where are our cats from?

All of our cats are adopted form shelters. We are convinced that everybody should adopt a cat over getting one from a breeder. When you adopt such a sweet, crazy, cute furry loveball from a shelter, you will make him extremely happy! Each cat deserves his own human family of which he can take control! This is why we work closely with different shelters. Local shelter Stichting Dierenasiel Sliedrecht is one of those. All volunteers at this shelter are extremely devoted to creating a happy home for the cats for as long as they stay there, but also making sure all cats will find a happy home. This making this shelter very innovative. They were the first Dutch shelter that no longer used cages. All cats can go wherever they feel like going. Even outside!

We would like to encourage everybody that wants to take in a cat to go to a local shelter. In order to gain more awareness of adopting cats we will advertise in our café, on our site and social media. Once in a while we will put a cat in the spotlight that is up for adoption. This is all to make sure that every cat will find a purrfect permanent home!
