Catopia’s mission is to provide a happy temporary home for adoptable cats that is also an awesome place for people to relax and have fun. We have delicious snacks, drinks, and cat-themed gift shop items. Plenty of high perches, soft spots to sleep, and toys are available for the cats. Comfy chairs, books, games, free WiFi, charging outlets, and other amenities are available to the humans. Our super-friendly staff is ready to help make your visit a great experience.
