Friendly staff greetings with clean smelling environment. Kitties wear name tag w/age/sex on it & are adoptable. Large area to sit/play with them & their toys. A separate wine/cafe attached for your enjoyment. Wonderful new vacation experience! Worth it!

Get the Cat Whisperer package as you are encouraged not to wake sleeping kitties. The sight and sound of the treat package will guarantee of herd of fur babies following you around. Great activity on a hot day.
