FYI - If you are lost (GPS doesn't like us) the best way to get to us is to take Lovell from Stadium, and turn left on Eldred. We are in the same building as Jimmy Johns, and you can park in the lot or on the street!

Kzoo Cat Cafe aims to provide a safe, enjoyable, atmosphere for community members and adoptable shelter cats to interact in a way that fosters play, relaxation and connection.
What is a Cat Cafe?
A Cat Cafe is a place where humans can interact with adoptable shelter cats in a fun, stress-free, environment, while enjoying drinks and snacks (included with entry fee). Cat Cafe's provide an opportunity for people who can't or don't want to own cats to spend time with them without commitment, and allows rescue cats to spend their time waiting for their forever home in a relaxed, social, cage-free environment.
Our generous partner...
We are an all volunteer non-profit fostering organization founded in 1991. We are dedicated to providing refuge to homeless, stray and unwanted cats and dogs in Kalamazoo County and placing these animals into permanent homes.
Our purpose is to provide a temporary home for adoptable rescue cats. Cat lovers and animal enthusiasts can visit to spend their time with the cats and kittens, in a relaxed atmosphere, and really get to know their personalities! You can enjoy coffee or other beverages, and light snacks during your time in the cafe (included with entry fee), as well as access to Wifi and kitty treats! Feel free to take pictures of the cats, and to share them with your friends! All of our cats are adoptable through Kalamazoo Animal Rescue, and are looking for their forever home!
I am an AVID cat lover and I've had cats all my life. I've been working with a few animal rescues in the Kalamazoo area since moving to Kalamazoo almost 4 years ago. I've been very involved, from rescuing, bottle feeding, socializing and sponsoring the cats and kittens. I also have two cats of my own, Ferguson (Gus) and Oliver (Ollie).
I first visited a cat cafe on a trip to Australia, and immediately fell in love with the concept (and the cats). I returned home and decided that Kalamazoo would be the perfect location for a new cat cafe, and got to work.
