Online Reservations?

Our priority is to create a stress free enjoyable space for the cats and visitors. In order to keep stress levels down for the kitties we will allow a certain amount of people in the cat room at a time.  We highly encourage online reservations, especially for the weekends. Walk in guests are always welcome if the cat lounge isn’t at it’s maximum capacity. To get your your kitty fix please schedule your time through our online reservation system. Reservations allow guests to visit in hourly slots.
