Meet the cat community in Houston, TX
Houston Texas, home of the Texas rodeo, delicious Tex-Mex, and NASA, but did you know it's also home to a large population of cat-lovers and owners? Houston is a fabulous place to live in the lone star state. It's close to some Texas coast beaches, has a great winter climate, reasonable cost of living, and more. It also boasts a great list of attractions and things-to-do for cat lovers and owners that are purrfect for any kitty lover living in the area. If you are one of those lucky feline-owning Houstonites, consider trying out some of the unique and cat-friendly attractions the city has to offer. Looking to adopt in Houston but you aren't sure where? We've got you covered with a couple options that are sure to leave you with a great new furry forever friend.
Houston sets itself apart from some of the other large cities in Texas, because it has its own unique cat café located right within the city limits. El Gato Coffee House is Houston's only cat café and rescue, with a mission to host adoptable cats in a cozy location until they find their “furrever” homes. Don't get discouraged about going to this establishment if you aren't in the market to adopt, the café also serves as cat therapy for people who need it, which in turn helps the cats learn to socialize as well! A win-win! They suggest booking online before going to avoid long wait times (and to keep things comfortable for the cats) and they also offer food (via food truck) and there is outdoor seating for anyone who doesn't wish to interact with the cats.
El Gato Coffeehouse doesn't stop there! They also offer a list of events that you can attend, including cat yoga, including a kid-friendly option, and they donate a portion of their proceeds to the Houston Humane Society. They also offer “Painting with Cats” classes , a joinable cat-lovers book club, frequent “Meowvie” movie nights that feature cat-films (while socializing with the café cats), and more! El Gato CoffeeHouse really lends itself as a “one stop shop” for a variety of fun things to do in Houston that are tailored specifically to cat lovers. You'll want to check it out.
Houston is also no exception for having a couple great pet-friendly parks to enjoy some outdoor fresh air with your pet. Hermann Park is a 445-acre park that is close to downtown and has plenty of open space and trails to enjoy some time with your cat. Have a picnic, take a walk with a leash or stroller, and enjoy the views Houston has to offer.
After a stroll through the park, get a bite to eat at any of the pet friendly restaurants in Houston. There are several that are open to all pets, and your cat should be free to attend on a leash or in a stroller. Barnaby's Café in Midtown is one such pet-friendly restaurant with plenty of patio seating to enjoy a drink or a nice meal with your furry friend.
There are festivals that occasionally roll through Houston, so you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for any cat-related events. For example, Pop Cats is coming to town in November 2020. This fun and exciting cat-fueled pop, comic, and art event is sure to provide a weekend of fun. They also donate a portion of their proceeds to cat-organizations that participate. Keep your eyes peeled because events like this come to Houston often!
If you're looking to meet fellow cat-lovers, maybe even to attend some of these events with, consider joining the Feline-Friendly meetup in Houston! It's nearing 500 members and they have fun events like game night, cat chats over ice-cream, and visiting Kaboom Books because it has a shop cat you can mingle with while you shop for books.
If you're looking to become a proud owner of your own little kitty (great decision) then Houston has you covered. A lot of people are partial to kittens, those people are in luck. Kitten House in Houston is an amazing organization that is centered around rescuing homeless or abandoned kittens, providing interim care for them, and finding them their forever homes. They also provide adoptions for fully grown cats, so don't worry if you're not ready for the unique responsibilities that a kitten might provide. If you are looking to support this organization without adopting, there are opportunities for you to help by sponsoring a kitten or volunteering with them.
Of course, Houston has its own Pets Alive! which does great work for the community, with dozens of positive testimonials on their site. There are also smaller lesser known agencies as well, so you have a lot of options. Friends 4 Life is one such Houston original organization that focuses on fostering and adopting out animals from the community. They also offer great incentives to adopt senior cats, waiving the adoption fee. They occasionally have kittens available for adoption if you want a younger cat as well. They also host events around Houston if you're looking to get involved in the community.
Just like with any large city, Houston does have its fair share of community or feral cats. Luckily, there are organizations in place around Houston that are designed specifically for lowering the population of feral cats, while also keeping the current ones safe and free from being euthanized. Hope (Homeless and Orphaned Pets Endeavor) of Houston is one such organization that has its own TNR Program (Trap-Neuter-Return). This method is proven to decrease the number of feral cats in a safe and ethical manner. Their website also includes links to other organizations running similar programs, as well as vets in the area that spay and neuter for a low cost. You can volunteer to work with Hope in this program as a trapper.
