Frequently asked questions

What is the Cat Lounge at Neko HQ?

The Cat Lounge is a relaxing space where you can enjoy the company of Cats! There are lots of comfy lounges for you and the Cats to choose from. We suggest you find a spot and let the Cats come to you. Cats are naturally inquisitive and like to check out new people as they arrive! We also find it is a great place to pop on your headphones, listen to music or watch something on the iPad, do some knitting or craft (please don’t let the cats eat any wool), read a book (well try to, you might have some distractions) or utilise our work station area to work or study. You can even take advantage of our free wi-fi and post some selfies from the Cat Lounge! The Cat Lounge is also a great place to have a catch up with friends, hold a meeting or workshop or even have a party. Ask us about booking out the entire lounge for an event.

​Is this a Café?

The Cat Lounge is not a café, however you are welcome to bring food and drinks into the lounge space but please don’t share them with our Cats. We recommend you pop next door to The Elixor pick up a coffee to take in with you. Please take any rubbish home with you.

Do I need to make a booking?

Places are limited so to guarantee a spot in the lounge we recommend that you make a booking. Walk-in will be accepted if there is a spot free.

Why is there an entrance fee?

The fees that we charge go directly to Maneki Neko Cat Rescue to continue the important job of rescuing and rehoming cats.

Can I make a donation?

We are very grateful to receive donations. Maneki Neko Cat Rescue is a registered charity and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Can you feature my product in the Cat Lounge?

Please email our Corporate Fundraiser at to discuss partnerships of this kind.

Can I bring my own Cat in?

To keep our cats healthy and stress-free (as well as your own Cat) we do not allow customers to bring their own cats in.

How do adoptions work?

If you fall in love with a Cat, let our Professional Cat Smoocher know. They will ask you to fill in an application and discuss adoption with you. As our Cats are working hard here at HQ you may be asked to collect your new family member at a later date.

Are Children Allowed in the Cat Lounge?

Children of all ages are allowed in the Cat Lounge however those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. There must be at least one Adult for every 2 children. Our Professional Cat Smoochers will be on hand to show you and your children how to interact with our cats and answer any questions they may have. The lounge is a quiet and relaxing environment so we ask that all children are quiet and respectful of the Cats and their home.
