About the employer

We are not your traditional 'cat cafe' but an oasis to escape everyday life in the company of our very own furry felines. Every day and every visit is different, you may find yourself surrounded with cats chasing each other whilst you sip on a coffee one day and the next you may be witness to a heap of fluffy kitties taking a nap.
