Things You'll Find:

  1. Sip & Purr works with a local animal shelter . . . all of our cats are adoptable . . . which means they are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on necessary vaccinations and medical tests.
  2. All guests must sign a waiver before visiting the Cat Lounge. Complete the waiver online or upon arrival.
  3. So that everyone has a safe and fun experience (including our cats!) we limit the number of Cat Lounge visitors to 12 folks at a time. Our cats are super popular—for guaranteed kitty cuddle time reserve your Cat Lounge spot before your visit! Do this at sipandpurr.com. Walk-in Cat Lounge visits are always welcome provided there's space available.
  4. We have a whole menu available . . . including LOTS of vegan and gluten free offerings! Every purchase helps us care for our adoptable cats.
