This is a great little 'out of the ordinary' sightseeing stop! The staff there are very dedicated to the welfare of the cats and its super clean. I work in a veterinary hospital and to be honest the cleaniness of this place puts us as a hospital to shame. All cats can come and go as they please, theres a... More

We were so plased to have read about the Pozenboot before our trip. We have 11, yes 11 cats at home and I miss my babies when we go away. The people who run the shelter and look after the cats are professional and friendly. The cats are all happy and the place is immaculate. I was very impressed. Me... More

I had read up on the Poezenboot before visiting Amsterdam, and am really impressed by the work that they do. The reason I have titled the review "Jealous" is the fact that it was closed when I arrived! I had no access to the internet, being a foreign traveler, but had read Tripadvisor reviews beforehand and am glad other people... More

A must see for cat lovers. Cats roaming free and in cages, some friendlier than others but all have had a rough life and have been rescued. Some are re-homed and others remain permanent residents. All clean and well cared for.

We enjoyed the most lovely time here. The pussy cats were adorable and wandered about quite happily, sunning themselves and sleeping away in lovely individual beds. This organisation is an absolute credit to caring for stray and abandoned cats. So clean, quirky and the history is fab to read too. This was a highlight for us as we were missing... More

This is a cat sanctuary on a boat, it's free to go but you can donate to the boats upkeep. The kitties are cute and some like a petting, some sit out of reach as they don't want to be disturbed. A nice way to while away half an hour.

This is a great chance to support a worthy charity in Amsterdam and say hello to some cats. Suggest that you only go if you want to support a worthy charity and are an animal lover. It is a small, but very clean boat home to a series of cats - both those who now live here and those waiting... More

I saw this online before my trip and planned a visit. Reasonably easy to find along the Singel canal. Very clean, lots of well cared for cats in a surreal setting! Most of the cats were friendly and we fell in love with one of the tabbys! The boat relies on the charity of visitors to help home the strays... More

Very limited opening hours. A cat-boat ran by volunteers with about 15 cats on it. You walk in, walk around the small boat, look at the cats sleeping or playing, leave a donation and go on your next adventure. Something to do if you're in the area at the right time (and like cats). It's always nice to give a... More
