  • Cats Protection's Office was located either on foot or from the Amsterdam Central station, it took me five hours. In the Canal, so not great facilities. I think efforts a good cat is not good I have such facilities reduces the damage of stray cats.

  • Very unexpectedly, even though Amsterdam is business as usual: ship-cat shelter. Boat with cat pictures on the water is open from 13 to 15, you can look at the animals, to treat them. Kitties are all good, well-maintained. You can also leave a donation for the upkeep of the animals.

  • What particular that the cat boat, once set up, by old neighbor Mrs van Weelden, reflected in the reviews from Tripadvisor. This beautiful initiative at the time for the cats of Amsterdam is still needed. Take care of the animals that have no accommodation, sick or on the other hand, is a wonderful initiative of then, and still applies for today ....

  • The visibility and uniqueness of Poezenboot raises awareness about acquiring pets, that there are many animals that need our love that are willing to love us back, regardless of their age. Due to its location on the canal, Poezenboot is a bit of a tourist destination, but a free one. They sell a variety of merchandise that supports their operation and are quirky souvenirs.
  • A wonderful way to raise awareness and provide re-homing opportunities for cats. A visit is free (though donations of course help them achieve their work!) and doesn't have to take very long - you can pop in for a couple of minutes to check it all out, or stay for as long as they're open, playing with their resident cats!
  • My favourite place in the universe. It's a cat shelter on a canal boat. I urge you to visit, the staff are lovely, plus KITTIES. Also, make a donation.
  • Strange. I called to adopt a cat and they told me I can only adopt two at a time. They will not adopt out only one. Seems a bit odd it they are in fact trying to place these cats into loving homes. Guess I'll have to look elsewhere.
  • lovely cats on boat, you can cuddle the cats. Remember to come later, near 2:30, otherwise it's going to be crowded
