  • Very quirky little place. If you like cats it's a must to visit. It was set up over 50 years ago and still going. One or two cats have been there a long time, others find new homes very quickly. My son loved it ❤️
  • Great place for cat lovers. The hosts/volunteers were lovely. We waited 30 minutes to get in but it was worth it. You can buy T-shirts, magnets, cat toys, postcards, etc. or just make a donation to support them. The cats are obviously taken great care of. There were three sleeping kittens as well. There were signs for two of the cats that they don't like to be pet, so be careful with them. I pet one of them and it didn't mind though.
