  • As a cat lover and canal lover, this was a must-do on my list. The visiting hours are extremely limited, so definitely plan ahead if you plan on going. The cats were cute and it's free so go if you ca...  more »
  • I'm not the biggest fan of felines but the ridiculous look of excitement on my partner's face made it all worthwhile. It's a dozen or so cats in a medical lobby room on a boat. Simple. Be aware, the o...  more »
  • this is a fun little stop for 10-15 minutes! about 15 cats in a little room on a barge. most of the cats are really friendly and want to be loved!

  • If you love cats and happen to be in Amsterdam, don't miss this one. It's a floating cat-shelter! Entrance is free, or you could donate how much you feel like and the money would go to the cats. There are some cats that are permanently live here, so they are not adopted out, but they also have cats in cages that are looking for new home, so if you live in Amsterdam and want a cat, don't shop but adopt from here - I see some kittens as well. The opening hours might be limited, but that's because they don't want the cats to be upset as they just let people in without limitation. Most cats are docile and enjoy pets / attention but there is one (that we were warned not to touch) that is rather angry all the time.
  • Fun place where you can play a cat inside a boat house. If you like cat, I recommend this place. Don't forget to donate some money. They have a good cause, save lost cats
  • My daughter loves cats and was very excited to visit Poezenboot sanctuary. A fantastic facility on a floating barge. A must visit.
  • Nice place to pet cats. Good location. Nice and hosting attitude. Great experience.
  • 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.
