Questions about my visit!
To enter the cat lounge, it is $18 per person for 1 hour. We are a non-profit organization so this charge helps us pay for bills associated with the cats and allows us to keep doing what we do best: providing a safe space for humans and finding furever homes for the amazing cats in our care.
Yes, we have a full coffee shop where we serve coffee, tea, smoothies, Italian sodas, and have a few snacks available like chips and cookies.
Reservations are strongly recommended, but not required. If space permits we do allow walk-ins, but please note that especially on the weekends we do often have to turn away walk-ins because we are at capacity!
** IF THERE ARE KIDS (under 13yrs old) IN YOUR GROUP A RESERVATION IS REQUIRED
YES, PLEASE NOTE A RESERVATION IS REQUIRED FOR GROUPS WITH KIDS.
The entry fee must be paid for all children, no matter their age. We do also limit 2 children per 1 adult as well as the total number of children in the lounge at one time and through out the day to reduce the stress on the cats.
Yes, every person that enters the lounge must pay the $18 per hour lounge fee.
ANY GROUP WITH KIDS MUST HAVE A RESERVATION.
If you made an online reservation and need to cancel or change, please refer to your confirmation email a minimum of 2 hours before your scheduled time slot and use the cancel or change links under your reservation time.
If you are late for your reservation, you time will still end at the time of your original reservation. We do need to respect other visitors time in the cat lounge and will not be able to extend your time if you are late.
We will lock the doors within 10 minutes of an event starting. If you are late, it does disrupt other visitors as well as the host or instructor.
Our hours of operation are:
Please note – we are closed from 2-3pm daily for a cat break so that we can reset the space and give our more shy feline friends some time to stretch their legs! Our hours do change if there is a public or private event. Booking your reservation online ensures your visit will be at a time we are open for lounge hours.
Questions about the cats!
Typically, we have between 15-25 cats in the lounge.
Yes, every cat in the lounge has been spayed or neutered.
Yes, every cat in the lounge is up to date on vaccines and FIV/FELV tested before entering the lounge.
We work with several independent rescuers across the valley as well as occasionally take in owner surrenders. We are a non profit rescue ourselves so we often rescue cats when we are doing work within the local community. We are very particular about the cats that we intake because they do need to do well in a large group setting with people coming in and out. We are not an open intake shelter.
We very rarely have kittens in our rescue and do not have them in the lounge for their safety. Our kittens are cared and loved in foster homes up until adoption, though we do occasionally have events to meet kittens when available. We only intake kittens that come from our own TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) projects. We are not able to accept any kittens needing placement.
Yes, our mission is to help cats find their furever homes. All our available cats are regularly posted in the Adoptable Cats section of the home page. There you can browse and find out more information about each cat, including age, breed, sex, adoption fees, adoption form, etc.
Adoption fees range from $100-$200 dollars depending on the cat. Most adoption fees are listed on the cats profile, but you can email us if you do not see it there.
If there is a cat you are interested in the first step is visiting them at the cat lounge in person. We will not adopt to anyone that has not visited the cat lounge and met the cat they are interested in. We do also require every adult in the household to have met the cat before we will even consider moving forward in the adoption process. We then will ask you to go online and fill out the adoption application for the cat you are interested in. After we receive your online application we will have a conversation with you to make sure the cat is the right fit for your home. Putting in an application does not guarantee you will be approved to adopt. If you are the right fit for the cat you have applied for we will move forward with the adoption and have you pay the adoption fee. Once that is completed, you can take your new cat home!
