Java Whiskers: Cat Cafe in Stockholm
Java Whiskers is the first and only cat cafe in Sweden with rehoming. Located in central Stockholm, Java Whiskers is the best place for cat lovers!
Here you can have good company while having fika (a Swedish coffee and cake break). There are 8-9 cats in the cafe that you can pet or play with!
The good thing about Java Whiskers is that they are a rehoming facility that helps homeless cats look forever home. So, all the cats in the cafe are up for adoption!
The main reason why I booked a visit to Java Whiskers is that I want to adopt another cat after adopting two cats, Luna and Mosa, back in March 2021. Miguel wanted another cat too, so we decided to visit the cats in Java Whiskers.

When we visited this cat cafe in Stockholm, there were only 8 cats around. Some of the cats are shy, but most of them will let you pet them.
Meet some of the cats in Java Whiskers! If you want to read more about the cats, you can find their information on their website. If you are planning to adopt one of them, you can also see if the cat is already reserved or not.
Simon is the cat we want to adopt. When Miguel was sitting on the floor, Simon came to him & lied down. That’s why we got a photo of us petting Simon (thanks to our friend, Jinah, for capturing this!).
Tarzan caught our attention because he has been sleeping most of our stay. One of the caretakers said that he is still shy, that’s why he is just hiding there. But, right after eating, he came out and everyone was just surprised & excited to see him!
This cat cafe in Stockholm has a warm ambiance so if you’re looking for a place to relax and also spend time with the cats, you should definitely add this only cat cafe in Sweden to your list!
Adopting a cat from Java Whiskers
All of these cats are looking for a forever home. So, if you are thinking of adopting a cat, you can adopt one from this cat cafe.
They collaborate with Djurens Chans, and all registration of interests should be submitted on their website.
I already submitted our registration of interest to adopt Simon. Not everyone will be contacted, but if Djurens Chans think that you are a good match to the cat, you will be contacted within 2 weeks!
I hope we can take you home soon, Simon!
Soon I will share the process of adopting cats in Stockholm! In the meantime, explore my current posts about living abroad in Stockholm, Sweden.
