Our cats will be happy to see you!  During this time, it is best to schedule an appointment prior to visiting.  Occupancy will be limited to provide social distancing for the humans. Walk-ins are great too as long as there is space available.  The link is above or you can call us at 508-4278. 


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 $8/hour cat room admission and then enjoy cat happiness!  We have cat-themed merchandise, baked goods, and drinks as well.

We have free WiFi and plenty of charging stations so you can work on your laptop if you’d like.  We also have 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 $8/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 have a few rules to keep everyone happy and safe:

- When making a reservation, please read the additional guidelines related to COVID protection.

- 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. 

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

    Thank you!


During this time, we ask that only adults and kids 8+ visit.  When things get back to normal, all ages will be welcome.  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.
