What is a cat café?

A cat café is half coffeehouse, half lounge, half cat adoption center (We realize that’s a lot more than half!!) We are a temporary cat and kitten foster home with the goal of changing the way adoptions happen. We offer the purrfect setting for humans and kitties to find their purrfect match. Your visit helps keep felines out of the traditional shelter environment and supports a model that results in a higher rate of successful adoptions. We have three main rooms: 1 main cat activity lounge, our new Nine Lives Wine Lounge (no one under 21 admitted) and 1 student lounge/cat co-working lounge. We have a cat-pacity to house up 12-15 adoptable cats and kittens at any one time in our safe, loving and healthy space! We offer delicious freshly brewed coffee from our proprietary coffee roaster (ALL NEW!), prepackaged snacks and refrigerated drinks, waters and (coming soon!) cat-themed snacks made exclusively for us from a local bakery. Our café is America’s first cat café with an antiques and rare books emporium and also the first with our own publishing house! We are also RVT owned and operated.
