Here's a brief description of the cats you'll find at Velvet Friends Cat Cafe:
SIBERIAN. From Russia with love, the Siberian Forest Cat is an ancient breed. Yaroslav has a very handsome face and a beautiful color and coat (Flame Point). He loves to hide, but when he shows himself up, his presence is one to behold.
KURILIAN BOBTAIL. Those who like bobtail cats would fall for a Kurilian Bobtail no doubt. This old breed of cat popular in Russia and other parts of Europe has a bushy bobtail. Basil and Kyryllo are good examples of this breed that originated from the Kuril Islands, claimed by both Russia and Japan. They are a bit shy but they are smart and agile.
MAINE COON. The largest domesticated breed of cat and one of the oldest natural breeds in North America. Bryley is a “gentle giant” who is calm and composed and who takes pride of his size and the length of his tail!
EXOTIC SHORTHAIR. The shorthaired version of the Persian, the Exotic Shorthair is adorable at all angles and Minushi is a fine example of one. This big boy is easy to please and warms up pretty quickly even to a complete stranger.
BRITISH SHORTHAIR. If you want a chunky cat, a British Shorthair is a good choice. Giorgio and Curtis are examples of a “Blue” and “Bi-color” British Shorthair. They have dense coat and broad face. They also have attractive copper eyes.
RAGDOLL. Here's one beautiful cat that has every reason to be confident. Quintin and Carter live up to their breed's standard description of having blue eyes and distinct colorpoint coat that is semi-longhair, soft and silky. The ragdoll has a wonderful bushy tail and it shamelessly flaunts it!
CORNISH REX. For a breed of cat that only wears an undercoat, the Cornish Rex has the softest coat of any cat breed. They don't look much from afar, but when you get to touch its coat, you will see that it's curly and velvety! The Cornish Rex like Nijinsky is very affectionate, sociable and quite athletic. Niijinsky moves so elegantly like a ballerina and he likes the attention he gets all the time.
AMERICAN CURL. You'll love this cat breed from ears to paws! Liam is a good example of an American Curl who is quite laid-back. Perched high up the catwalk, Liam could hear everything being said about his wonderful ears which curl up naturally. This adorable feature is a result of spontaneous mutation.
PUSPIN. The Puspin or Pusang Pinoy is a domestic short-haired cat that does not belong to any particular recognized cat breed. Nevertheless, the domestic shorthair is all over the world. In the United Kingdom, they are called moggies. They are resilient, smart and lovable. Manila puts his kind on the map by thriving among purebred at Velvet Friends Cat Cafe.
HIGHLAND FOLD AND HIGHLAND STRAIGH. Radcliffe is a Highland Fold (Red Marble) cat with an intriguing character: a little standoffish but tolerant enough to let you pet him gently. He becomes affectionate in his own terms so the little effort to win his trust becomes worth it.
