  • We had an amazing time here! The cats were all clean, as well as their living conditions, and the volunteers all friendly. It was obvious that they cared deeply for the cats, which is important. The c...  more »
  • We love cats so we enjoyed it. It's a tight spot with lots of cats. The cats for adoption are caged and the cats running around are alley cats. The alley cats will not be cuddled. You can definitely p...  more »
  • The cat boat is easily accessible, near the city center and the Centraal train station. When we arrived, there were around 15-20 cats on the boat, most of them eating or sleeping or roaming around. Th...  more »

  • A really cool place to go at lunch time or if you’re in the centre of Amsterdam as a tourist. The people who work there are really nice and can tell you all about the the cats. It's so interesting just to watch the cats interact there. It's free and open from 1 to 3.
  • A cat rescue shelter on a canal boat! Definitely on the must-see list of any cat lover. Lovely cats you can pop in and spend some time with, and maybe even give a forever home to. Free entry, but donations are welcome and there's a little souvenir shop. Check the opening hours beforehand as it is only open to the public for a few hours, and not every day 😻😻
  • Absolutely brilliant place and staff. We were given loads of information on how they re-home the cats and about the boats starting years. The staff were lovely, they obviously love what they do. The cats are very well treated, and ask very happy. This is a great place to visit if your in the area during opening hours.
  • It's such a nice place to sit down and enjoy the company of a ton of different cats! Just go expecting to be scratched at a few times, but it's still such a nice place!
  • Cats are well cared for and you can clearly tell the staff are passionate.
