How much is it to visit the cats?
To hang in the Cat Lounge during regular hours, it is $8 for 50 minutes or $5 for 30 minutes (Available for Walk-Ins). This rate is per person. Reservations can only be taken for 50 minute bookings.
Are reservations required?
Reservations are not required but they are highly recommended. Our space can only accomodate 15 people so making a reservation in advanced will ensure you do not come during a time we are either at capacity, holding an event or hosting a private party. We are unable to take walk-ins during the hours these events are scheduled. To avoid inconvenience, book a reservation online by visiting https://www.purrfectbuffalo.com/book-online to ensure that you can come in on the day and during the time desired.
Is there an age limit?
All ages are welcome all the time!
Where do you get your cats from?
We work with a couple of area rescues including E.A.R.S. based out of Salamanca and Pumpkin's Patch based out of Buffalo.
We do not take cats directly into the cafe as cats need to be vetted and processed prior to being deemed adoption ready.
Do you have cats for adoption?
Yes! Typically, we have 10-15 cats in the Cat Lounge. The cats are adoptable cats through the rescue partners we work with.
Is there a limit to how many people can be admitted to the Cat Lounge?
We can only admit 15 people into the Cat Lounge at one time. We tend to get busy during evenings and weekends and highly recommend making a reservation online for these times. Reservations are not required but encouraged to avoid coming to the Lounge during a time that is at capacity or during one of our scheduled events. Once we reach our capacity of 15 people, walk-ins will have to wait until a time that space opens up in the lounge to accomodate the number of people in their party.

Why do I have to sign a waiver?
Waivers are in place in order to ensure the safety of all of our patrons and cafe cats. These waivers are to help patrons understand that there are rules in place to ensure all interactions in the lounge are appropriate and pleasant. This includes offering a reminder that though our cats are friendly and social, they do have teeth and claws they may used if provoked and thus why we enforce certain rules to be followed during your visit to the Cat Lounge.
Are all of your cats Spay/Neutered and Vaccinated?
Yes! All of the cats in our cafe are fully vetted. This means all of our cats are spayed/neutered, vacccinated for rabies, vaccinated for feline distemper, combo tested, flea treated, de-wormed, and up to date on their annual examinations.
