We are so excited to bring the very first Cat Cafe to Rotorua! Here we have many beautiful feline friends that will bring you joy. We will be very busy for the first few months of opening, particularly on weekends and holidays, so please make sure you pre-purchase your tickets here or call us in advance (07 460 6868) to ensure your place before arrival, as we have to limit the number of people per hour for the well-being of our cats.

Wonderful peaceful time

Great way to spend an hour over coffee watching and playing with various cats. Recommend to anyone who likes cats. A moggy or two would be good to have there also.

This place is awesome! Good price. Cats are playful and don't mind the human contact. The rooms are very hygienic and clean. Doesn't smell like 10 cats are living there. I would recommend and I will definitely be returning.

Hi Mackjk6, Thanks for your lovely review! We do think that cleanness is a big issue! So we do clean the cat room and litter box every hour, so our guest can simply enjoy by surrounding with loads of cats and no need to worry about the 'cat business'. Hope you had a good time with us! Cheers! More

A whole hour, with a coffee, and lots of adorable cats to play with and stroke. Totally de-stressing!! Extremely clean premises. Friendly staff, and tv to watch of funny cats and more. Left this place with an absolute warmth in my soul.

The owners are very friendly. If you like cats and can't have one, or miss your own, this is a good stop. There are an assortment of friendly cats located in a cat's dream playroom. Your price includes a drink and time with the cat(s) of your choice. This will be one of the very few places in NZ where... More

Hi Foodiefool_10, Thanks for your review! I think people do not really consider cats as bad, however people are started to have cats living indoor so can contribute to protect our environment. Cats are lovely creature, and many NZ families are actually having cats as pets at home. However we provide this chance for people to sit with many friendly... More

I thought this was a great concept! Coffee & cats! You are basically required to pay to see the cats, which I am glad is possible through coffee because I love coffee! It really depends on when you come to make the experience optimal. If its crowded, its kind of a ton of people in a room full of tired... More

Hi Jackson, Yes we are sometime quite full on raining days, and due to the poor weather yes we were crowded a bit. However we do have some quite nice days and times through the week, where cats are quite active and willing to cuddle! Hope we can see you again in the future! Kind Regards Rovina More
