Our hours are:
Reservations are highly recommended. Drop-ins are welcome as availability allows. However, it is best to book a reservation to assure your spot at the time you want to visit. Reservations can be made as little as 30 minutes in advance.
Yes. At least one adult must be present per three children. Children under the age of 6 are not permitted.
All visitors under the age of 13 must come with a parent, legal guardian or supervisor. Minors 13 and older may visit without an adult but must have their waivers signed in advance at the time of booking or in advance by a parent before arrival. Parents may sign the waivers through the link provided when booking. Unsupervised minors may have to provide proof of age and identification when checking in so that we can match up the name with the waiver.
We ask that all visitors help us create a calm and joyful environment for our kitty residents as Kitty Pause is their home while they await their forever homes. Anyone who is disruptive or harmful to the cats will be asked to leave without reimbursement.
No. As much as we would enjoy meeting your beloved cat, we cannot allow other cats inside Kitty Pause. Bring pictures of them instead.
Absolutely! If your favorite Kitty Pause cat is up for a few selfies, that is fine by us. Please refrain from using a flash. Be sure to post them on Instagram and tag us at #KittyPauseKittyCafe. Click here for our Instagram page.
Please call us at (480) 450-1915 to let us know. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your reservation without notifying us, we will give your spot to a walk-in customer.
Yes, until they are adopted. Kitty Pauses’ goal is to provide rescue cats with a free roaming and enriched space where they can thrive until they find their forever home.
In order to assure the safety of the Kitty Pause Kitty Café cats (as well as our human visitors) we have a few rules that we ask that you follow:
These rules keep the cats and our guests safe. Anyone who mistreats our cats in any way will be asked to leave immediately and will not receive a refund.
All rules are subject to change and will be enforced by Kitty Pause Kitty Café Management and staff.
Cats sleep up to 16 hours per day at random times. Chances are slim that all the cats will be sleeping at the same time. While we understand that you are looking forward to spending time with playful cats, it’s important to the health of the cats that they are allowed to sleep when they need it. We ask that you do not disturb any cats that are sleeping.
Yes, we do! Wi-Fi access is included in your reservation fee.

When you enter Kitty Pause, you come into the Katnip Boutique and reception area where you sign in with the person on duty, pay your entrance fees if you have not already done so online when you booked or present your free pass if you have one. You will be asked to identify yourself verbally or in the case of a free visit pass to show ID.
Students will need to show their school identification to enter as a student to study. Depending on the length of a study or work session, special reduced entrance rates may apply.
When your session begins, you will enter the cat lounge where the kitties live and play. You will be asked to return to the boutique at the end of your visit at 55 minutes past the hour to allow for cleaning and straightening before the next visitors enter the lounge.
