How do cat visitations work?
There is a visitation fee per person to enter the cat lounge. Visitors are allowed a specified number of minutes with our feline residents to play, cuddle and sip. You may purchase a specialty drink or enjoy complimentary brewed coffee and a snack while in the cat lounge during your session. Then sit down and enjoy the kitties!
What to Expect:
When it’s time to visit, come around to the front of the building, ring our snazzy new doorbell and check in. We’ll make sure we have your reservation and waivers signed in our system. We’ll also review our house rules and catiquette with you and answer any questions you may have. You are welcome to hang out on the front porch until your time has been called if you’d like! You will enter our vestibule and sanitize your hands prior to admittance. We will ask you if you’d like to place a specialty drink order from Cal Java, our coffee partner, OR you may prefer to enjoy a complimentary brewed coffee from our own private roaster once inside. If it’s raining, take your shoes off and place them into one of the cubbies in our shoe caddy. We recommend simply sitting down and letting the cats come to you (don’t worry, they will)! Our cat lounge is where our adoptable kitties call home, and you can expect them to be doing all the normal activities they would do at your furrever home; such as playing, climbing, eating and napping, lots of napping. Sometimes the cat room may be full of cat-action, and other times it may be all Zen and quiet. There is plenty to enjoy in both scenarios.
We are very fortunate here on the Esplanade to have ample parking directly behind our café! Alternatively, we have a few spots directly in front of our building.
The Cat Lounge
There will be approximately 12-15 cats and kittens in the lounge at any given time, all of which are available for adoption! During each session, there are typically 9-12 people in the lounge, but the number may vary depending on the number of felines. We offer lots of seating, so make yourselves comfortable!
