We are happy that many of these projects follow the example of european cat cafés in matter of animal protection, with La Gatoteca in Madrid / Spain as pioneer in working with cats for adoption, offering cat asisted therapies and a broad range of parallell activities for cat lovers.

They are organizing educational events, conferences with vets, workshops for kids and therapies for elderly and disabled people.
