House Rules


  1. It is ideal to arrive 5 minutes prior to your booking time for full cats' experience. We try our best to accommodate if you are running late and you're first-time visitors. However, we cannot extend your session if the next timeslot is fully booked. 

  2. Please don’t pick up the cats – The cats have the final decision to choose whether they would like to interact with customers or roam by themselves.

  3. Please don’t chase the cats – They will approach you at their own discretion.

  4. Strictly no food and feeding cats without permission – Cats have their own dietary needs and being given human food could lead to health complications.

  5. Please don’t disturb their sleep – Cats can sleep up to 16 hours a day.

  6. Please don’t make loud noises – The cats prefer customers gently approaching them.

  7. Please pat them gently – The cats love having soft cuddles and pats, your love for them shall be reciprocated this way ❤.

  8. Please take photos without flash – It would otherwise scare the cats

  9. Please do not climb on furniture and especially cat furniture – Cats who roam on top of the furniture indicate they would like their own privacy at the moment, please respect their space.

  10. It is highly recommended customers wear long sleeves and long pants to avoid any injuries.

  11. All of our drinks come in take-away cups, please leave the lids on at all times and far from any cats’ reach.


Risks associated to visitors with admission into the Cat Lounge and interaction with the cats include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Minor or serious injury from the cats including bites and scratches

  • Damage to personal property by the cats’ general behaviour including spraying (urinating), scent marking, shedding hair, scratching and biting (eg. Clothing, bags, accessories)
