Your visit to the lounge helps support the work we are doing. Thank you for choosing to spend time with our cats and for your generosity!
Reservations allowed at one time: 4. We limit the number of guests in the lounge to help you get more quality kitty time and minimize the stress on the cats. We can accommodate a single group of up to 6 people but please let us know in advance. Please have each adult sign the waiver prior to your first visit and have a responsible adult sign for each minor: Adult Waiver Here — Minor Waiver Here
Current cats at the lounge: View our Available Cats page. If the number and/or age of the cats at the lounge is important to you please look at who we have prior to making your reservations. We cannot guarantee a particular number or particular behavior available at any given time. Our main mission is to help cats get adopted.
Interested in adopting? We do not do same-day adoptions. It is a process that includes meeting the cats and talking with us, an application, and a home check. Hoping to take home a cat today? Consider HSVC (Ojai), VCAS (Camarillo), and SPARC (Santa Paula).
Children are welcome as long as they can behave appropriately around cats and kittens. If they will be walking around independently you will need to pay for their entrance. If you’ll be holding them or hovering within arm’s reach the entire time then no entrance fee is required for them. We require 1 parent or guardian for every 2 children 13 and under.
No running, yelling, climbing, throwing, etc. Our lounge is a playground for the cats but not for children. We will review our policies with you and your child when you visit so that cats and humans will have the safest and most enjoyable time possible. Parents are expected to watch their children.
Children 14 and older may visit the lounge without a parent but the minor waiver must be submitted by a parent/guardian ahead of time and a reservation must be made. No walk-ins for unaccompanied minors.
We cannot guarantee that all (or even any) of our cats will be awake and wanting to play during your visit. Cats can sleep 15-20 hours a day. First and last appointments tend to see the cats more lively. 2pm tends to be a sleepy time. A busy visit might lead to more sleeping cats at any time in the day.
Our fees (which all go toward the care and housing of the cats):
Wed: $6/30 minutes, $8/45 minutes, or $10/60 minutes
Fri, Sat, and Sun: $8/30 minutes, $11/45 minutes, or $14/60 minutes
Private Party (F/Sa/Su): $130 for 1.5 hours, $168 for 2 hours
Private Party (W): $96 for 1.5 hours
Private parties are for groups of up to 6 people and everyone in the group must be able to respect the calm environment we strive to maintain for the cats. The same rules apply to children 13 and under (1 adult for every 2 children). These are a flat rate for 1-6 people and guarantee you have the lounge to yourselves for the entire time. If you are bringing children or planning a party you must reach out to us ahead of time with your plans/ideas.
We encourage reservations to be sure you can visit when you’re ready (walk-ins are fine as space permits).
We are open by appointment only on Thursdays for serious adoption inquiries. Please contact us if you’d like to arrange a visit. A visit fee will still apply ($6/30 minutes).
NOTE: By visiting the lounge you acknowledge that there is a risk with cats (teeth, claws). We will do all we can to keep visitors safe and you agree to do your part by abiding by our policies which we will review with you when you come to the lounge as well as following any instructions given by volunteers during your visit. You also assert that no one in your party has any allergies to cats and that you enter at your own risk if your allergic status is unknown.
Reservations are sometimes glitchy on phones. If you can’t complete your reservation please try on a laptop if you have one. If you still can’t get it to work please text us (don’t call) 805-232-4228 so we can reserve your space.
Cancellations or requests to reschedule must be made at least two hours in advance. No-shows will not receive a refund or credit for future visits.
