My 11 year old son and I enjoyed our hour at Purrington's. We went solely for the cat interaction, not for the drinks. We did get some water. We weren't looking to adopt, but we would have been tempted if we were. You do have...More

Cute cats. About five were ready for play. Others were hiding in the human-free zone for our visit. Go for the felines, not the refreshments. Hostesses really loved the cats ...and customers . Very friendly.

I think some people go in here with the wrong expectations. I went in and was hoping to pet cats, but you need a reservation because they don't want too many people in the room with cats. Very FAIR. So I ordered tea and watched...More

Although Purrrington's is a little on the small side, the cats are very fun and lovable. The staff was nice and the coffee was good too. If you're in Portland and looking for a way to spend some down time definitely check out the cat...More

We made reservations online and I'm glad we did because there were 5 of us in our group and it seemed full. There is a cat lady in the lounge who knows all of the cats' names and personalities. Fun room with cool stuff. The...More

I love cats and thought this would be a fun way to have contact with some in a relaxing, comfortable environment. For $8 per person ($4 for 60 +) you can spend an hour inside and interact with several "adoptable" cats. Come to find out,...More

Super clean and mellow. We had been travelling for awhile so this was purrrrrfect for some down time. It's well structured and supervised. Was $8 for an hour ; what a bargain plus it helps cats find homes :). If one is allergic? no problem,...More

I loved Purrington's! It's the best blend of a true cafe, including a real menu of beer, wine, coffees, teas and snacks, with a cat adoption venue. And the cat space, viewable through a window in case folks don't want to interact with the cats...More
