By purchasing tickets, you agree to all of the Cat Cafe Rules [see images], The FAQ Page, and the NOTES below:
Evenings and weekdays are our least busy times.
NOTE 1. Cats are Live Animals; we cannot predict their behaviour.
The cats are most likely to be playful in the first morning or last evening sessions, and relaxed for sleepy pats in the middle sessions. Children + Families are encouraged to attend earlier sessions, while nights are usually for adults.
NOTE 2. Please arrive 10 minutes before
Your time slot to get your coffee + treats, and note that all time slots include our briefing time, and change-over time.
NOTE 3. One ticket = One Entrant. Every guest needs a ticket.
As ticketing is strictly limited in the Cat Lounge to ensure cat wellbeing, you must purchase a ticket for each guest, including children, regardless of age. FREE Tickets are granted to on-duty carers with Companion Cards (book all tickets online, then receive a refund for one ticket when you show your valid Card on arrival), and please consult our FAQ section regarding wheelchair access before purchasing tickets.
NOTE 4. Our current AGE LIMIT is set to four and up (4+).
All patrons must be four or older to enter (incl. no babies at this time). We encourage parents to book day time sessions. There can be no large groups of children, or parties at this time.
NOTE 5. ALL CHILDREN UNDER 11 must have a supervising guardian.
Joining them in The Cat Lounge, both parents and children MUST purchase tickets, regardless of age. Any children without supervision will be refused entry without a refund.
RESCHEDULING must provide at least 48 HOURS NOTICE via email, or tickets and funds will be forfeited.
If times are GREY that session is already FULLY BOOKED. Simply click "Reset Times" and choose a different date/time to find more tickets.
The availability counter shows how many tickets are left in that session. IE: Counter showing "1" means only one ticket remains.
12 People may attend any session, with a maximum of 8 people per group. Groups wishing to have more than 8 guests must book out the Cat Lounge Exclusively, see Private Functions HERE
Part proceeds of these tickets - and everything we sell - goes to supporting our partners at Cat Haven!
The kitties can't WAIT to see you!!! MEOW
We spend hours and hours every day with our 12 furry children and there is one thing that we notice consistently - they sure know how to relax!
Cats appear to be experts in mindfulness, as they sit, lay, or stand quietly observing or resting as the world goes by. They are totally devoid of external pressures, and seem to effortlessly fall back into a state of zen whenever they so choose.
There is a lot to learn from them.
We have teamed up with Pause HQ to run sessions of relaxation with the cats where we will practice meditation techniques in the company of the furry zen masters.
Our hearts naturally open when we sit with cats: both literally (they lower blood pressure and stress), and metaphorically (because they offer us unconditional love and acceptance). They also help us connect to these qualities within ourselves during meditation.
Cats live in the moment: through sharing meditation with them they can (and will!) help us to do the same. Let them teach you how to let go of worries and distractions so you can embrace feelings of gratitude + peace.
To optimise your wellbeing. Meditation provides many health benefits. Stress relief, increased focus/ memory and better sleep are just a few reasons to meditate, all supported by scientific research. Who better to learn and practice meditation with than 12 furry zen masters!
Carolyn Trethewey is a meditation teacher, herbal + nutritional medicine practitioner, and results coach. Carolyn loves empowering people as she helps them reach greater levels of wellness and balance in all areas of life.
Her passion is teaching people how to meditate with animals, seeing them as our wise friends and teachers.
Carolyn has travelled twice to the United States for specialty training, sharing meditation with animals including tigers, a bear, leopards, tortoises and even an alligator!
Since 2014 she has also volunteered at Cat Haven, sharing meditation with hundreds of cats in need.
For more details about Carolyn’s business please visit the “Pause | people. animals. wellness.” website: www.pausehq.com.au
This is a brand new initiative for The Cat Cafe. This class will be great for beginners in meditation, and for those with more experience who would like to learn about engaging animals in their practice. Carolyn's methods can be shared with any and all animals, so you can use the techniques learned with any of your pets or creature friends, not just cats.
We all need to take a moment to relax and decompress, what better time than stressful December, and what better way than with the masterful teaching of rescue cats!

Our very own Terps (aka Pepi), co-founder of Purrth, is obsessed with Origami. She is an Origami Artist, and has donated several Origami artworks to charity, including her Bloom Series which raised thousands of dollars for Perth NFP Street Connect at the ESCAPE Art Auction.
Well now her two passions have collided in our new workshop: Origami with Cats!
This will be a fun and casual one hour session of guided Origami, with our cats joining in as they please. We are all about relaxing and enjoying ourselves, so guests are free to engage as much as they want with the Origami, and they're equally free to get distracted by the cats and enjoy plenty of pat breaks too.
Whether you're brand new to folding paper art, or you're a ninja paper master, we have origami artwork instructions for all different skill levels. We will go through the basics to get everyone started, then beyond that, you are free to choose any of our guided artworks, or make whatever you please.
Places strictly limited, email your interest if you miss out.

As seen in Elle, Marie Claire and New Idea, Huts & Bay is our new favourite Pet Furniture Designer. Our 12 furry children love the teepee. From when they were kittens, to now when they're all grown-up, the teepee is in high demand. Even if we take out the cushion and semi-fold it up for cleaning, there will still be a cat inside shortly after, claiming their nap spot. It's that good.
Huts & Bay have the best Teepees hands down, and that's why we import them for our furry ones

Much was achieved for Human Happiness. This year we had two marriage proposals (both successful), at least 300 birthdays, and some blindfolded surprises. What we are most humbled by though, are the countless comments we have received from people after their session, thanking us for "being there when they needed it most."
We are so pleased to be able to offer a warm and happy environment for positive mental health. With so many people struggling internally, we are grateful that we can offer a place of joy, relaxation, rejuvenation, or whatever our guests might need.
This year some of our notable achievements for Animal Welfare included, sustaining a happy home for our 12 furry children, showcasing rescue cats to approximately 100,000 people in Perth, and spreading the word Adopt Don't Shop for Cat Haven WA.
Along with spreading Cat Haven's message and showcasing rescue cats, we have also been slowly raising money to help support them financially too. Thank you to everyone this year who bought tickets, coffee, merchandise, anything in our store or online, or left a tip, or a donation in the jar or machine, every bit counts.
This year we are pleased to announce this year's Purrthday donation...
From The Cat Cafe to Cat Haven is $10,050.20!
Thank you again to everyone who has supported us, we are so grateful to you for making our work even more fun, joyous, and fantastic. Thank you.
Now for this year's big Announcements:
This year we were pleased to break even. With so many businesses closing around us, we feel very lucky. Long term, we want to do more than break even, so that we can support Cat Haven further, and to make sure we can be sustainable in our high level support for our own furry family.
In looking back over our reports from the year, it is clear that we broke even because we decided to prioritise the long-term well being of our cat family. We started Purrth with 20 guests entering the lounge per hour, slowly lowering this down to our very comfortable 1:1 ratio of 12 people, 12 cats.
While this decrease in volume fulfilled our goals to ensure our cat family's well being, it also resulted in a loss of almost 50% revenue in our second year.
Coupling this with rent increases, and increases across staff, food supply, and all consumables, we are now at the point that we must increase our price.
Our research shows that Los Angeles' Cat Cafe now charge a minimum donation of $25US for their entry, and most Tokyo Cat Cafes charge around $12 per 30 minutes or $24/hour.
We understand that charging $24 per hour at The Cat Cafe in Perth right now is not practical for most people.
So with all of this in mind, we have decided on what we believe is a fair increase, and as of August 1 2018, our price will change to $15 per hour per person.
Regulars Can Still Get $10 Tickets.
We are going to continue running the multi-visit pass at a discounted rate. The multi-pass will change in August, but the price point will stay around $10 per ticket.
We hope you understand that this decision was not made lightly, and that we have held off on increasing our price for as long as possible. This increase will help us sustain our low volume/high comfort model, and help us do more for Cat Haven.
We have decided to get more hands-on in our support for Cat Haven!
Throughout the process of developing The Cat Cafe over the past few years, we have gained a particular set of skills and resources for the high level care of kittens and cats.
We now have significant experience in raising, socialising, and caring for cats. We also have a dedicated Cat Shelter in the office above The Cat Cafe that is only used during the rare times that one of our cats falls ill or needs some extra rest.
We are going to put these assets to good use and help Cat Haven even more this year by becoming a satellite foster centre. This means we can alleviate some of the pressure on them by taking care of cats who might not be ready for adoption yet, and need some special care. IE: young kittens too small to adopt, or shy cats who need some socialising.
Most the foster work will be done behind the scenes in our dedicated shelter, but every now and again, these cats or kittens will come down into The Cat Cafe in our custom designed condo for some socialising.
Bonus perks of our hands-on support!
1. Cat loving visitors to The Cat Cafe will have the opportunity to put their name down and record their interest in adopting these cats. Hopefully this means that by the time the foster cats are ready to be adopted and go back to Cat Haven, they will already have a forever home waiting for them - thus streamlining Cat Haven's process even further.
2. Cat loving visitors will also see how wonderful and rewarding it is to be a foster carer for Cat Haven, and will have the opportunity to apply to become a foster carer themselves. This means we can increase Cat Haven's foster network too!
So with this new idea, we'll be able to support Cat Haven by alleviating pressure on them for bed space, find many kittens and cats their forever homes, AND build the database of loving foster carers!
We are very excited about this potential!
We are currently looking after three tiny kitties in our shelter - Choccy, Chewie, and Chip (pictured above).
Again, the primary focus of The Cat Cafe is our own resident family. Any kittens or cats that we foster will only come down briefly into The Cat Lounge at random for lucky groups, and will be inside our dedicated condo, so as not to upset the residents.
Choccy, Chewie and Chip will have their first random visits down into The Cat Lounge starting next week!
Thank You from All of Us!
Purrth is a small family owned and operated business. We rely on the continued support and generosity of our partners, advisors, donors, and staff to make The Cat Cafe the Happiest Place in Perth.
So thank you to the entire team, and on their behalf, thank YOU for all of your support.
We look forward to an even bigger and better third year together.
Happy Purrthday to you!
