Cat cafe opening up in Omaha next month

OMAHA,Neb(FOX42KPTM)-A new cat cafe is opening up in Omaha. It's the first of its kind here. It's called "Felius". You can stop in, have some coffee and play with cats.

"Everything we've done here at Felius is really designed with our cats in mind," Bre Phelan said. She's the owner.

"We wanted to make a space that's not only inviting for the people that come to visit but also for all of the cats that are going to live on our premises."

Phelan gave FOX 42 a tour on Tuesday. She tells us there will be a coffee bar, play area for cats, climbing wall, and a cat chute.

"It takes them from our cat playroom into a separate room where they can really relax away from people if they need a minute to breathe."

It also has a patio, but they call it "Catio".

"If the weather's nice we'll probably have some cats out there."

Phelan says they've received $30,000 in donations to make the cat cafe come to life.

"It's been so heartening to see all of the support coming from the community. "

Felius will open at the end of next month. They're still waiting for a few permissions from the city.
