Catfe says that their last-minute Rabbit Cafe pop-up operated at capacity most of its run.

“I was apprehensive at first because I thought the bunnies might be nervous,” says Catfe owner Michelle Furbacher in an e-mailed release, “but these guys are quite social! They’re very curious and interactive with the guests, and they have little private house enclosures to go chill in whenever they feel like it.”

Those wishing for a little bunny quality time make an appointment to visit, pay a donation to Rabbitats, and are given a cup of treats to feed the two dozen rabbits on site.

Rabbitats founder Sorelle Saidman is hoping that experiences like the pop-up Bunny Cafe can help Metro Vancouverites see bunnies in a different light, rather than as pests..

“If the loose bunnies can be trapped, spayed and neutered and released into spiffed up, secure enclosures, they will be safe and out of the environment and people will come to see them,” says Saidman.

Rabbitats also adopts out house bunnies. The too-cute crew at Catfe are all up for adoption.

You can make a reservation to meet these hop-ular bunnies online.

Catfe is located at Unit #2035 – 2nd floor, International Village Mall, 88 W Pender St in Vancouver.
