Have you ever wanted to be surrounded by cats while sipping a delicious latte? Well, you’re in luck! On September 18th, 2018, Felius, Omaha’s first nonprofit cat café, opened downtown.
Bre Phelan, owner and president of Felius, grew up on a farm in Nebraska and took many feral cats to animal shelters hoping they would find good families and instead watched them get put into small cages. She became obsessed with the idea that there was a better way for her feline friends to find homes. Phelan hopes by opening the café she can help revolutionize the cat adoption experience in Omaha.
