Milwaukee's first 'cat cafe', Sip & Purr, announced its official location on Milwaukee's East Side on Tuesday. 

The cafe will be at 2021 East Ivanhoe Place, just off of North Avenue . It's one of many new businesses that have opened recently near the intersection of North and Farwell Avenues, including Fresh Fine Poke, The Waxwing, and Kawa Ramen & Sushi. 

Sip & Purr is also adjacent to Black Cat Alley, an open-air mural art gallery, making it the 'purrfect' location. 

Cat cafes have been a growing trend worldwide, offering a unique experience for customers to get a cup of coffee while enjoying the company of a furry friend. 

Sip & Purr will also feature a 'Cat Lounge,' which is a neighborhood cat adoption center.  “Providing the adoptable cats with a stress-free, cage-less living area from the get-go really helps their personalities shine through, ultimately resulting in more adoptions,” states owner and founder Katy McHugh. 

Not a coffee person? Sip & Purr will offer wine and small snacks as well. The cafe plans to open in summer of 2018.
