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...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!

Wasn't optimistic after some of the reviews, but turned out to be an enjoyable 90 minutes. You can get within 3 feet of most of the varied collection of cats. Unlike most zoos, the cats were moving in their enclosures when we visited - stretching,...More
