Play With Adoptable Cats at Purrfect Day Cat Cafe in Covington KY

You don’t have to be a huge cat lover to enjoy a visit at Northern Kentucky’s first cat café.

Purrfect Day Cat Cafe guests can enjoy a quiet afternoon with their favorite coffee in the company of furry felines eligible for adoption.

Owner Chuck Patton and his wife Tricia experienced their first cat café in Charleston, South Carolina on vacation and were inspired to start the original Purrfect Day Cat Cafe in Louisville, KY.

Their second location in Covington, KY gives homage to Chuck’s Northern Kentucky roots.

There is a fee for the 50 minute session and guests can bring their drinks from the cat cafe inside the cat lounge.

The cafe suggests arriving 15 minutes before your session begins to have time to look over the menu and make drink purchases prior to your session. If you prefer to grab a snack or drink afterwards, that’s fine too.

Food is not allowed in the cat lounge and drinks cannot come back into the cafe after a session in the cat lounge.

What If You Aren’t Really a Cat Person?

It’s OK! I wouldn’t really consider myself a huge cat lover but I enjoyed my first time at Purrfect Day Cat Cafe.

The cats will approach you…. if they want to…and they will walk away from you… when they want to.

It’s important to remember that you are a guest in their home so try not to make sudden movements that could startle them. You don’t want to disturb a cat if they are sleeping or eating.

The cats will also be playing, climbing, roaming around the room and taking lots of naps.

Where Do the Cats at the Café Come From?

Purrfect Day Cafe is a foster facility with kittens and cats provided by the Kenton County Animal Services.

This environment helps keep cats out of traditional shelters and increases the likelihood of being adopted because they’ve been socialized.

The cats at Purrfect Day Cafe sleep in the cat lounge at night in whatever location they choose.

Does the Cat Lounge Smell Like a Litter Box?

I’m happy to report that the cat lounge does NOT smell like a litter box thankfully. I have a pretty sensitive nose for smells and that’s always my #1 concern.

The staff works really hard to create a great experience in the cat lounge for guests when it comes to the smell… or in this case, lack of smell.

There are even two separate HVAC systems in the building, one for the cafe and another for the cat lounge.

Do You Need a Reservation to Visit the Purrfect Day Cafe?

You don’t need a reservation to visit the café. In fact, guests can simply watch the cats from the large windows inside the food/drink cafe, which is a nice option if you have someone in your party who is allergic to cats.

You Can Help Socialize Adoptable Cats

If pet adoption isn’t for you that’s totally OK!

I didn’t want to bring a cat home but I was told that my visit was still very helpful.

When you spend time in the cat lounge you are part of helping to socialize adoptable cats for their future owners.

You don’t have to bring home a new furry family member to help make a difference.

How Do You Adopt a Cat from Purrfect Day Cat Cafe?

If you are potentially interested in adopting a cat you will want to tell a staff member. They can assist with helping you find the best match for you and your family.

They will have you fill out an adoption survey and an adoption supervisor will go over everything with you.

There is a possibility that you could bring home a cat on the same day, or you can arrange a pick up of your new feline friend on the following day.

*Adoptions are not completed after the last session hour.
