Yes! Our cafe is completely separate from the cat forest so you can come in anytime within opening hours to get a drink or a snack.
One admission gets you either 30, 50 or 65 minutes in the cat room. Visit the bookings page her for more information.
For weekdays it is pay as you go, the first 30 minutes is $8 and every 15 minutes after is $2.50. You decide how long you wish to stay and pay on your exit. Weekends are in 30 and 65 minute slots and you may extend your visit subject to availability.
When you are checked in by a host, you will be taken to the cat forest waiting area 5 minutes before entering. Here you will change to slippers and sanitize your hands. Each group will be brought into the cat room at the same time. After you enter the Cat Forest, your host will review rules for the cats with you. For weekdays, you can leave when you wish. For weekends, when your time slot is up, you will be reminded to leave so that the next group may come in, unless you have extended your time.
If you don't have a reservation, don't worry. We have dedicated spots with each new group that are for walk ins only. But be prepared to wait. If you're coming from far away, we recommend you call and check the wait times before coming down.
For weekdays, you can arrive anytime you wish. For weekends, arrive at least 10 minutes before your reservation time to ensure there is time to be checked in and for orientation. If you are running late please call 604-423-2987 and let us know at least 15 minutes prior to your reservation or else you will lose your place for the day.
No outside food/drinks are allowed in the cat room. You may bring only the food and drinks purchased in our cafe which are in disposable and safe containers.
There are no restrictions for attire for the cat forest. However you will be required to change into slippers before entering which we will provide. Please bring your own socks if possible. Also, short or skirts are not recommeded to lower the chance of scratches.
