If you prefer to drink your coffee in the company of several curious, adorable cats, you’ll feel right at home at one of Charlotte’s cat cafes.

Cat cafes have surged in popularity lately and they’re a win/win. If you just need a dose of feline companionship you can get that. But the cats are adoptable, and when you spend time with them in a relaxed environment, you might just find your perfect roommate.

When you visit, you generally pay an hourly fee, and that goes toward caring for the cats. Time slots often sell out in advance. Some of the businesses also have separate areas to enjoy a coffee, a craft beer, or other treat, and there’s no hourly fee to relax there.

Here are five cat cafes in the Charlotte area.
