Bring home a new best friend from the Catfé Lounge in Ferndale

OAKLAND, MI - Established in 2015, the Catfé Lounge is the first permanent cat cafe in all Michigan, though there’s something about the Catfé Lounge that distinguishes it from other cat cafes. Not only is it partnering with an animal rescue, but it is also owned and operated by the Ferndale Cat Shelter.

Ferndale Cat Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)3 dedicated cat rescue. Its main mission is to provide adoption services, foster homes, medical care, and trap-neuter-release programs for felines in the Metro Detroit area. The Catfé Lounge is the perfect place for cat lovers to play with kittens in need of homes. For $10, you are granted one hour visit to the Catfé Lounge with complimentary snacks and beverages that are available in the cafe. Get that $10 admission fee back if you bring home a cat.

You can find the Catfé Lounge at 821 Livernois, Ferndale from Wednesday to Monday from 12 p.m to 5 p.m. Due to state requirements, the Catfé Lounge is starting an 8-visitors-at-a-time policy until the COVID-19 transmission rate in Michigan improves. Schedule your visit through this link by booking and paying your reservations using the calendar provided.

The Catfé Lounge also has rules in the shelter to accommodate everyone’s needs. Including the cats. House rules include using hand sanitizer upon entrance, signing a waiver or membership form, not bothering a sleeping cat, children under the age of 7 must be monitored closely, and more.

Donations and volunteering opportunities are always open at this licensed shelter for kind people.
