Where can we visit a Cat Café in New Zealand?

Visit Purrs and Beans in Auckland for a Cat Café experience like no other!

They are a small, independently run, social enterprise and sanctuary to a clowder of very special resident rescue cats, all of whom are older and some with special needs. Because of this, admission into the cat area is restricted to 10+ as part of the SPCA welfare plan which they enforce strictly to ensure the safety and welfare of our cats.

To spend time with the fluffy gang, You do have to pay an entry fee in place which contributes towards the cats’ care and helps them continue to run the premises which is their forever home. With limited capacity in each session so as not to overcrowd the cat area and overwhelm our cats, They strongly recommend booking online to guarantee your spot.

  • tranquil space for people in need of a little bit of feline therapy
  • Meet Cats with such classy names as Tank, Tonks, Mango and Miss Molly Snugglington to name a few
  • Open 10am – 3pm
