If you are looking to adopt a new cat or kitten, or just want to relax and play with a room full of cats, you can schedule an appointment to do just that at the Catfé Lounge. When you visit the Catfé Lounge, you are asked to make a minimum required donation of $15. This donation covers your choice of coffee, tea, or juice and one hour of visiting time. However, if you decide to adopt one of the cats you interact with, that $15 donation will be deducted from your adoption fee.

That's not all. The Catfé Lounge also hosts events in the facility such as Trivia Night (with cats!) and Cat Bingo.
