Don't be misled by the name - this is a breeding center for exotic cats. They have everything from the world's largest cat (Amur Tiger) to the world's smallest (Black footed cat - 2-5 pounds fully grown!) The cats are easy to see, and there are plenty of volunteers and staff on hand who are happy to answer all your... More

I've lived in Rosamond for years and finally decided to check this place out. They have a large display of cats and I went there around feeding time which was a treat because they were very active! I had a great time and highly recommend.

First watch out for the Peacock poo, that being said it was a great experience. We visited on a Friday afternoon and got to see all the cats except the ones that preferred not to come out and say hi. My son was amazed and kind of nervous when he heard the Panther roar. It was a awesome experience especially... More

Ok, this place is small but it's great. Such an amazing experience seeing these cats close up. I went to Santa Barbara zoo the day before and The Cat House was way better. So many cats you don't get to see elsewhere and in a great setting. Definitely worth a visit.

We had to pick up some things in Rosamond and decided to stop at the EFBC along the way. The place is nicely landscaped and they are still planning to renovate and add future projects to the compound. There were volunteers around providing information about the cats and we even got to see one of the volunteers feed hard boiled... More

I like that it is close to home. It is fun to walk around and watch the cats. The volunteers seem to know quite a bit about the beautiful cats. Become a sponsor and you get invited to the special events!

Ok, I went with my mom when I was 47, this is a very neat place to go, if you can go around sunset or when they are ready for feeding the cats begin to get more lively. We sat under a tree around sunset and they began to purr and cry and I say that in a lovely cry... More

We were very pleasantly surprised. The gift shop had many educational facts about the cats including the scull from a saber tooth tiger. During our walk there were several areas with shade which was a relief from the sun. Although a small area we had the chance to walk around several times and got to see cats that weren't walking...

The Cat House is not a zoo. It is a exotic feline breeding program. The cats are healthy and well cared for. I travel to the area for work and I always make time to stop by The Cat House. They are doing amazing work. And according to their FB page they have some sand cat kittens ... I would... More

I don't like animals in cages but actually it looked like they were pretty good! They have big cages and food, they look healthy and quiet. I loved that park! I saw many different kind of cats, only the tigers didn't show up but I could see all the other animals by doing a second tour! Beautiful animals and also... More
