What a lovely little piece of PURRadise! The team truly cares about the kitties. They work with the Kentucky Humane Society to find homes for rescue cats and kittens.

Since August of 2018, over 5,000 kitties have been adopted. They also have coffee, cocktails, specialty drinks like The Smelly Cat frappe. Lots of snacks and treats, too.

The café is super clean and the kitties are well cared for, too.
Reservations are highly recommended, especially on weekends as they have only 14 people in the lounge per hour.

It’s ages 18 and up only on Friday and Saturday nights after 6. Kids must be supervised at all times.

They have a dog-friendly catio outside, at the entrance.

No reservations needed to hang out for drinks, snacks, and a view of the kitties!

Lots of merch and they donate a portion of,tips to the shelter, too!

We love this place! We live in Southern Indiana and have made this a monthly activity. The people who work at the cafe are so friendly and genuinely love animals. They have a great selection of drinks in the cafe and it’s very family friendly.

Can ANYONE leave a negative review of this place??!? How would that be possible?!? I mean, it’s KITTENS. And wine. Kittens and wine are probably two of the best things in the world. I will say, the staff are exceptional as well. Very friendly and professional, making sure to let us know how successful the mission of this place is (which is very successful, across the board). I’m grateful for how many sweet babies they have homed, and how many more they will continue to home. Even if you don’t want to adopt, just go. Go and pet kittens. It’ll lift your heart.

I have been to a few cat cafes in my time, and they have all been wonderful. I was walking in expecting it to be wonderful (per usual) but it exceed my expectations. I was expecting adult cats, who I love, BUT IT WAS A DAY WITH 20 KITTENS! I was beyond excited, because I haven't been able to foster kittens this year. Anyway, it was clean, and the kittens were all healthy and happy. This was a wonderful day for me and my friend. The other piece is that the kittens are all adoptable. They are the perfect kittens to adopt because they have been socialized with all types of humans! It was the perfect day.

Thank you Casey Q for your review, we are so delighted you enjoyed Purrfect Day Cafe! Our team works very hard to provide a safe, clean and healthy environment for both the kitties and humans too. The socialization of the kitties by our visitors is a key to successl adoptions and finding furrever homes.

Can't say enough amazing things about this place! The staff is so friendly, the snacks are yummy, and those kittens are the cutest! Lots of drink choices, including alcohol, coffee, a delicious frappe', plus local treats.

You can tell the staff really cares about the kitties. They all look so healthy and you can help socialize them, adopt them, or just get some therapy. The staff really goes out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time during their visit. The kittens are from the Kentucky Humane Society, so you know helping shelter kitties by visiting Purrfect Day is worth it! Thank you!

This is such an amazing experience regardless of whether you are here to adopt or just have a cocktail/snack and play with the adorable kittens. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We had such a great experience adopting the newest member of our family! It was amazing to be able to spend time with all of the adoptable kittens in such a cheerful atmosphere. It is the best of both worlds in that they work directly with the KY Humane Society but the environment is nothing like being at a shelter (although they do a wonderful job at the shelters as well!). I can't say enough good things about this wonderful place. Our little guy was adoption #5085 and we will continue to support that wonderful work they do!

If you like cats, you will love this experience. Play with and pet 15-20 cats/kittens. You get to play with them for 50 mins. Arrive 15 mins or so early and get your beverage or snack. The staff is really friendly and the caffe and cat room are very clean. We had a great time!

Purrfect Day truly is a "purr"-fect experience! Spend an hour relaxing with your favorite beverage and a delicious snack and play with kittens! You can adopt one (or two, or three...) but there's ZERO pressure to do so. If you're interested, employees will help you as much or as little as you like to find just the right one to become your fur-ever friend. (You know, the cat usually chooses you! ) All cats have had their shots, etc. and are spayed/neutered. Toys are scattered about to help you entertain the fabulous felines, or you can just sit and cuddle a purring ball of joy. I have visited several times, both alone and with family. On this particular visit, I attended a group Reiki session, one of the many special events hosted by the café.. Kids are welcome except for a few evening slots on Friday and Saturday nights. Have a unique birthday party, date night, or go solo and set aside your cares for awhile. Cute merchandise is available, too. If you like cats, you will LOVE the experience!

The cats are adorable, the staff is friendly, the snacks are delicious and the drinks are good.
What a better way to spend and hour than to play with adoptable cat while supporting a local human society. Will definitely come back.
