Fancy a cup of tea with a certain ginger former Prime Minister? Or, rather, her cat namesake? Or perhaps you live in a flat with a “no-pets” policy and you sorely miss your kitty back at your parents place? Or is your partner allergic to cats so there’s no way you’ll ever have your own?
Well, if you’re in Canberra, you’ll soon be able to dine with some celebri-cats at the Capital Cat Cafe! The cafe is hoping to get up and running soon in hipster Braddon with the help of their IndieGoGo campaign. Some of the awesome rewards include your name on the wall of honour in the cafe for all eternity for only $20! This is an awesome reward for someone who can’t make it to Canberra but wants to support the kitties, or who just wants that kudos of all their mates seeing their name with envy every time they sup with (Sir Robert) Menzies.

The Capital Cat Café will have a unique Canberra feel. The cafe will be fitted out to reflect the many tourist attractions and natural features of the nations’s capital. The Kitty-Parliamentarians will have their own Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Room along with a mini Canberra decked out with all the facilities and equipment a cat could ever want or need! (Along with many media advisors, I’m sure)
Decided that, as I had enforced leave between Xmas and NYE anyway, I might as well head down to Canberra, a place I had never been during that period of time when I HAD lived there. Always part of the exodus.
It sometimes takes moving away from a city to see some of the sights. Rish and I headed to Adore Tea at Gold Creek for a lovely afternoon of chai and jazz, at the suggestion of a friend we were staying with. Not super overwhelmed by the tea, but the atmosphere was lovely with live […]
Last night was my work farewell dinner at Rama’s at the Pearce shops. My workmates came out in good numbers for the winter school holidays, and many smiles and hugs were shared. Samosas Delicious Spinach Balls One of the girls served me a yummy plate. We stuffed ourselves on a banquet, no idea what the […]
Just back from my last trip to the Old Bus Depot Markets as a Canberran… one last chance to browse the familiar stalls, sip a warm drink, and buy some macarons from The Curious Chocolatier… So many to choose from! Ended up with one of each, plus to pistachio, two slated caramel and two hazelnut […]
