House Rules


  1. It is ideal to arrive 5 minutes prior to your booking time for full cats' experience. Extension for late comers are subject to availability only. No extension for the last session of the day. Any changes to your booking must be done at least 24 hours in advance.

  2. Please don’t force our cats to do anything they don't want to. Strictly no picking them up or chasing them, and respect warning signs given by the cats, to avoid anyone getting hurt. – Cats choose to interact or roam by themselves. They will approach you at their own discretion.

  3. Strictly no food inside the cat lounge and NO feeding the cats without permission.  – Each cat have their own dietary needs and being given unapproved food could lead to health complications, obesity among them.

  4. All of our drinks come in take-away cups, please leave them within your sight with the lids on at all times. – Cats are very good at finding and helping themselves to your drinks!

  5. Please do not disturb a sleeping cat or make loud noises – Cats need to sleep up to 16-18 hours a day and are easily spooked.

  6. Please do not step on any furniture, they are not designed to hold human weight. – Cats who roam on top of the furniture indicate they would like their own privacy at the moment, please respect their space. 

  7. Please touch the cats gently – Cats love soft cuddles and pats, your love for them shall be reciprocated this way ❤.

  8. Please take photos without flash – It hurts their eyes!

  9. We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave before the end of the session if they cannot follow the rules to protect the welfare of our cats and themselves.
