Boston Will Have a Cat Cafe, But Only This Saturday

The BUST Holiday Craftacular will include craft and food vendors...and cats.

Holiday season approaches, and BUST magazine wants to make sure you're fully stocked on gifts. The Holiday Craftacular will take place at the Cyclorama in the South End this Saturday, November 22 (as well Brooklyn on December 6 and 7), and there will be more than 120 of New England's "very best handmade, vintage, and tasty treats vendors" in attendance, according to a press release.

Most importantly, there will be a cat cafe. Drink tea and consider adopting cats while supporting animal rescue organizations.

Tickets for the event are just $3 at the door, and the first 300 shoppers to show up get a swag bag. (Cats presumably not included.) The event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In other Boston cat cafe news, a concept called Miaou Boston was in the works at this time last year, although that dream seems to have been abandoned as the website is gone and the social media channels have been quiet since then.
