Wonderful place to visit. Rescue at it’s best. Staff are friendly and the cats are well looked after. Also our admission fee is going straight back into the charity. Well worth the visit.

My partner and I visited the cat lounge at Neqo HQ and had the most amazing time. The cats are so friendly and fun to play with. We could have stayed all day. I highly recommend this for anyone living in Melbourne or just visiting.

I visited just after they opened. Very impressed with all the divine furniture. Cats are adorable and very friendly. The gift shop is amazing too. Well done: what a lovely venue for an afternoon break.

Such a nice place to have a snuggle or a play with some gorgeous kitties. It’s a great spot to chill out or bring the family.

I popped in here one afternoon and chilled out with some of the gorgeous kitties up for adoption ! Would love to have been able to take one home, but settled for some cute stationary from the store!

Huge space, amazingly designed. The cats are so comfortable and happy to get all the pats on offer. It is bright and open and even smells nice! Staff are lovely and the wares on sale are beautifully chosen. It's just a very peaceful, quiet space.
