Our cats will be happy to see you!  You can enter our building through a dual front door.  Only one door will open at a time but please still watch for cats in case they are feeling curious about the outdoors.  You can purchase your $5/hour cat room admission, snacks, and drinks from the counter, and then enjoy cat happiness!

We have free WiFi and plenty of charging stations so you can work on your laptop if you’d like.  We also have a book library (mostly about cats), board games, puzzles, and many spots to sit and cuddle cats.  We have lots of cat toys to entertain the cats which, in turn, will entertain us.

Please leave your own cats at home as we don’t know how they would interact with the cats here.  But do show us photos of your cats – we love to see cute cats!


We charge $5/hour admission for this unique and fun experience in a comfy environment.  This small entry fee helps us cover rent, wages, utilities, food, and supplies for the large open home for our kitties.  100% of adoption proceeds go directly to our shelter partners to help them cover medical care and vetting costs.


We offer memberships that allow you unlimited cat happiness and a 10% discount on merchandise.  Monthly memberships are $30/person and $20/person for each additional family member.  Yearly memberships are $300/year.


We have a few rules to keep everyone happy and safe:

- Please be gentle with the cats and do not pick them up to ensure you do not get scratched.

- If a tail starts flicking or a cat acts irritable, please give them some space. 

- It is hard to say no to those cute faces, but please do not feed cats people food.

- Our cats love that you want to take their pictures!  Just please do not use a flash.  Be sure to tag us -

    Thank you!


All ages are welcome, but we require that our younger folks be respectful of the cats and other visitors by keeping their voices low and being very gentle with the felines.  Adults and kids alike must be gentle and respectful or we will kindly ask you to view the kitties from outside.

We will be closed on the following holidays:  Easter, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  We will close early at 4 pm on July 4th, Halloween, New Years eve, and Christmas Eve.  

We proudly display art from the Public Academy for Performing Arts.  You can purchase the artwork and a variety of fun cat products from our gift shop.
