Was lovely to be in with the cats who are clearly well looked after. Was disappointing in the hour we were there they were all asleep however we do get it… it was hot and they are probably over people pestering them!

First Cat Cafe I have visited. A fun and relaxing experience.

We booked online, and had no wait to enter the cat cafe area where the cats were. The cats look very well cared for and enjoyed the sunshine through the windows as well as all the cat friendly spaces, chairs. A lot of RagDoll cats and British short-hair breeds, and one Bengal cat. Cats were calm, friendly and enjoyed being patted and brushed with the cat brushes. Mostly sleeping or grooming themselves while we were there.

We were fortunate that it was not overly busy when we arrived for our session. Relaxed family and small group friendly activity. We did not order drinks while with the cats so we could spend more time with them. There were cat books and information about the resident cats too which was nice. After we had finished our session we ordered icecream, a great selection.
A well managed cafe with friendly and professional staff.

Great for cat loving kids. We’ll worth the look and a great activity for a wet day. Admission required to see actual cats. A booking is recommended during busy times. We had to wait 20min over school holidays as we hadn’t booked.

We had a lovely time with the cats and would happily return. The cats were very friendly and each have their own very unique personalities! My son who loves animals had a great time too.

A little pricey, as the other reviews have mentioned, however - a lovely place to chill and relax - especially if you love cats! Great for kids too. Staff were welcoming and friendly.

This was relaxed and enjoyable. The staff were helpful and friendly. The cats were happy chilling in the sun by the window or on their towers and some where playful with toys. The massage chairs are at the back (no sun) so at the time we visited most where in the front. Happy and clean. My daughter (19!) LOVED it.

We visit every time we come to Rotorua as Miss 5 is a massive fan of cats. She can’t wipe the smile off her face every time we go 🥰 always clean and service is great.

Hi there I am sorry that we do not provide food. And any food or ice cream is not allowed inside the fancy meow cat cafe because we have to make sure that cats do not eat any other food that may lead them to get sick. Thank you for your understanding.
