    FAQ

    We are open all days from 11:30am to 10:00pm.

    WhereDo the Cats Come From?

    Cat Café Studio is a private organisation and all our cats are rescued by The Cat Café Studio Rescue Team from the streets of the city. None of our cats have been purchased from a breeder and we strongly encourage saving lives and reducing the stray cat population by adopting.


    CanI bring an abandoned/rescued/owned cat to Cat Café Studio?

    Unfortunately no you cannot. We do not accept cats from individuals or organisations. We are not an animal hospital, animal shelter or a NGO. We do not cater to public requests of rescuing and fostering cats. We know that some people wish to help our society by rescuing cats from the streets, but being private, we have internal rescue and fostering protocols and structure, hence we cannot accept your request.


    Whatdo I do if I rescue a Cat from the streets?

    First and foremost, step one to a rescue process is to take the rescued animal to a nearby Veterinarian immediately as most of the animals on streets are either hurt, malnutritioned or in trauma. Immediate medical attention might be required. Step two, foster the cat/dog at home till it gets better and shows signs of being healthy and well. A round of vaccinations would be the next best step; post which you could start approaching Animal NGOs around your area (please Google for the list) and seek assistance for adoption. Animal NGOs across the nation are overloaded with stray animal cases so there is a good chance they might not be able to address to your case immediately. Nevertheless they will be able to post your cats/dogs pictures on various adoption portals to spread the word. There are also many online portals where you can post the pictures of your rescued cat/dog to find potential adopters. The process of rescue might seem long and tedious but its vital that you take the initiative to see through the entire process as opposed to expecting NGOs/Animal Organisations to assist you immediately.


    HowMany Cats Will be in The Cat Café Studio?

    There will be approximately 15-25 cats and kittens in the Cat Cafe Area at any given time, all available for adoption.


    CanI bring my own Cat?

    We do not allow outside cats in the cafe due to health and safety concerns. Cats are territorial by nature and bringing your cats into a new premise might stress them. Also, Cat Café Studio is strictly for cats and kittens looking for their forever homes.


    DoThe Cats Come in Contact with the Food Preparation Area?

    The Cat area is a completely separate from the cafe kitchen section.


    Whydoes the adoption process seem long?

    As you may or may not be aware, most of Cat Café Studio’s cats have been rescued from extreme conditions and hold traumatic history. They have been abused, injured or abandoned. We want to ensure they do not go right back into those situations. By asking questions, conducting interviews, and giving you an adoption manual we get a pretty good idea if you are truly a serious and potential adopter. Our number one priority is the well-being of our animals. Thank you for your understanding!


    Whydo children below 15 years need to be accompanied by a parent/ guardian?

    All of our guests under 15 must come with a parent, legal guardian, or supervisor. The parents/guardians must ensure that the house rules are being followed at all times by the children. We do not provide daycare service and we do require that someone provides supervision to their minor. Kittens are tiny and can be easily over looked by young children. This is dangerous for both the child and the cats. When cats get stressed they are very unhappy and become ill or act out to protect themselves.


    Whatabout people that are allergic to cats?

    We imagine that people with allergies know their situations well enough to make an informed decision as to whether or not the cat cafe experience is right for them.


    Don’tyou think the cats will knock over everybody’s beverages and food?

    People that opt to enjoy their drink in the coffee shop side have nothing to worry about. As for anybody who is going to bring their drinks or food into the cat area, they will be responsible for keeping an eye on it.


    Isthere parking at the cafe?

    We do not have dedicated parking for the cafe, but there is usually plenty of street parking nearby.


    Whydon’t you allow large groups to enter?

    In our experience, larger groups of people who know each other tend to be louder in general and the noise upsets the cats and negatively impacts the experience of the cats and the guests. We have limited the size of the groups to try and avoid upsetting the cats. If you’re interested in booking for a larger group size, please contact us to learn more about our private events.


    Arethe cats vaccinated?

    Yes, all cats in the cat area have been timely vaccinated.


    Doyou serve alcohol?

    We DO NOT serve alcohol.


    Whyare the cats sleeping whenever I come?

    Cats sleep an average of fifteen hours a day, and some can sleep up to twenty hours in a twenty-four hour period. The first thing you should realize is that cats are most active between dusk and dawn, which means that they sleep mostly during the day and become active around twilight.


    Whatdo the cats at the cat café eat?

    Our cats have a healthy and balanced diet of both wet food and dry food.


    Canthe cats get away from people?

    Yes. The cats have their own room where they can escape to if they wish, which is separated by a cat door. They do not have to be in the café should they choose not to.


    Canwe feed the cats?

    We maintain a balanced diet for the cats and no outside food can be fed. You can however buy treats from the counter and give no more than 2 – 3 treats per cat. Please ask the animal supervisor before you purchase because if they have been given treats in the day, the same won’t be permitted again.


    Doyou cage your cats?

    No. Our cats are not kept in cages unless advised bed rest by our vet due to health reasons or asked to be kept in isolation due to contagious diseases.


    Howdo you stop the cats from escaping?

    We operate an Access Control System on our main Cat Café door. This provides security by giving us control over who is allowed to open and close the door.

    Arethe cats in Cat Café Studio sterilised?

    Whodo I contact if i want to write about you?

    Whatabout cat scratches and bites?

    We assume that anybody entering the cat area understands the risk of scratch or nip associated with cats and will takes steps to minimise such risks (following all our house rules). There is a first aid kit available on site. Please ask the animal supervisor in the café for assistance. All that being said, you are choosing to enter a room with cats therefore we are not liable for any cat related injuries.


    Doyou have Persian/Breed cats for adoption?

    No we don’t. Cat Café Studio is a place for rescued cats from the streets. Our mission is to care for rescued cats, foster them with the best medical care and then find forever homes for them. We discourage people from buying breed cats when there is a massive stray population of animals on the streets of India that can find loving homes. Cats on the streets are no different from any breed cat you may be attracted to buy.


    DoI need to have a reservation to come to the cafe?

    No reservations are required before visiting the cafe. However, if the cat area is full then we have the cafe area for occupancy and we will get you access to the cat area once a table gets free.

    Whatdocuments should I carry for adoption? What are the basic requirements for adoption?

    The Adoption process begins with you paying a visit to the Cat Café Studio and spending time with our felines to see who do you best connect with.
    One visit might not be enough for you to decide on who to pick as your future pet, so do feel free to visit often or you can also approach a Cat Cafe Hooman on duty for Adoption Consultation Session. We make recommendations based on your lifestyle, working schedule and prior knowledge of felines. While we welcome first timers too to adopt, we suggest to seek proper consultation from the Cat Café Staff in choosing a cat that would be a suitable companion for you.
    The next step would involve taking our Adoption Manual for a read. The manual will take you through the basics of cat care and adoption preparation.
    After you have addressed to all tasks listed in the adoption manual, come back to the cafe to begin the Adoption Process and that’s when our senior staff will conduct an interview and make you fill a questionnaire to be certain of your seriousness about adoption.
    If all goes well, you sign the official Cat Café Studio Adoption Papers, submit a photocopy of your address proof and an government ID and you are good to take home your pet.
    Please note: While our adoption process might seem long and tedious, it is a vital drill for you to follow for us to be certain of a long term commitment to your future furry companion. Cat Café Studio expects you to be extremely certain and serious about adoption to avoid any uncalled for actions in future like abandonment or worst losing a cat because of sheer negligence.
