This cat shelter on the Singel canal is well worth a visit for geniune cat lovers. This kittie shelter takes in abandoned cats and give them the love and care they deserve. The catboat does not recieve any government subsidies or support and rely on donations and volunteers.
The founder Mrs Henriette van Weelde took in stray & unwanted cats and became well known as the cat lady. She decided to purchase a houseboat in 1968 to house the kitties. In July 1987 the Catboat foundation was set up.
You can visit the catboat for free and learn about their work and spend time with some of their lovely cats. They sell a few cat souvenirs a birthday calendar for Euro3, a t-shirt for Euro15 & postcards. The volunteers work hard to keep the houseboat very hygenic & fresh. The cats are in no danger of the kitties falling in the water as it is enclosed but they can look out onto the canal & watch the boats pass by. The cats are chipped and fed special dietry food.
They are open everyday (except Wednesday) 1pm - 3pm
Address: Singel 38G
