La Gattara Cat Lounge & Boutique - Tempe, Arizona

When you think of Arizona, what do you think of?  Probably cacti, rock gardens, dry heat, retirement communities, swimming pools, year-round golfing, the Grand Canyon and, of course, cat cafes!

Nestled close to the Arizona State University campus is the La Gattara Cat Lounge & Boutique.  La Gattara is an open concept industrial space decorated with cat perches, benches, shelves, cat drinking fountain, furry rugs and Chinese lanterns.  This is the only cat cafe I've been to that boasts a color scheme - pink, black and turquoise.  Maybe there's some cat psychology data out there that supports positive cat health when exposed to these colors.  La Gattara is another laid back cat lounge (which I always appreciate) where they don't mind you picking up the cats.  Tip:  visit the bathroom when you're there - there were at least 5 cats nestled in little spaces inside sleeping which was adorable.  I spent about 10 minutes in there (not for THAT reason) scratching their little heads.

The cost of admission to La Gattara is $10/person and this allows you one hour to spend with the cats where you can nestle on one of the fuzzy rugs watching birds chirping and flying around on the flat screen (aka cat-ertainment!).  La Gattara does not offer any food and beverages; however, I brought in my own drink with me and no one said anything about it.  

If you take some time to get out of the Arizona heat, you'll discover something pretty unique and paw-some!  Check out La Gattara right meow!
