First...what is a cat lounge?
Our lounge is a place where people can relax and cuddle with adoptable cats. Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment to play with and learn about our furry friends. Whether you can't have your own pet, you're an animal lover, you've never been around cats, or you just want to try something new, this is for you!
Q. How much is admission?
A. We offer a 50-minute cat lounge session for $15 and a 30-minute session for $8. We also host special events for different prices. We do host private events so we recommend making a reservation to ensure the cats are accepting company! Reservations can be booked up to one hour before closing.
Q. Why is there an admission fee to visit the cat lounge?
A. Admission is charged for your time in the lounge to cover the overhead of keeping the doors open and the cats happy. Admission pays the cats’ rent, keeps the lights on, internet connected, and buys them food, toys, and furniture to keep the lounge area comfortable. We have to limit the number of people entering to maintain a calm environment for the benefit of resident cats.
Q. Do you have a cancellation policy?
A. Yes, you can cancel or reschedule your experience with a full refund up to 24 hours in advance using the link in your confirmation email. If it is less than 24 hours until your experience, we cannot guarantee a refund.
Q. Why is there an age requirement to visit the cats?
A. For the safety of the cats, children under the age of 7 are not allowed to visit the lounge. Our cats’ welfare is our top priority and we’re limiting the chance of them being overstimulated by constant excitement. Young children have a lot of energy and sometimes cats don’t appreciate their loving gestures. We realize being exposed to so many strangers increases the risk of an unpleasant incident and we appreciate the risk of injury is serious, so please understand a liability waiver is required for every guest.
We’re accepting children ages 7-15 with a parent/guardian and no more than two children per adult during regular business hours. If a child you bring is aggressive or excessively excited, you may be asked to leave for the well-being of the cats and other guests. Children are not allowed to pick up any cats and may only pet and play with cats in a respectful manner.
Q. Can I book Feline Good Social Club for a private event?
A. Absolutely! We will help you party plan an exceptional event, but it must be for a small crowd under 35 people. Send us an email with basic details and we will provide a quote.
Q. Can I bring my own cat?
A. No. All resident kitties are fully vetted and available for adoption through our partner rescue organization – Long Beach Felines. We ensure all cats have passed their wellness exam, are spayed/neutered, combo tested neg/neg for FIV/FeLV, and are up to date on all shots, flea preventative, and deworming medicine.
Q. Can I bring my own snacks or beverages?
A. While we do allow you to bring your own food & beverage, keep in mind that the cats beg. People get swarmed for crumbs. Cats steal anything left unattended. Be alert!
Q. Can I bring snacks for the cats?
A. No. Feline Good Social Club will provide approved snacks for the cats to enjoy. We have to monitor their diet closely, so a limited number will be available upon request.
Q. Do you have a full list of lounge rules?
A. Yes! We kindly suggest reviewing our Kitty Kommandments before visiting. We also have these rules displayed in the lounge as they will be enforced at all times.
Q. How many cats will be available to interact with?
A. We usually have up to 25 adult cats in the lounge – plus occasional kittens in the nursery. Our space is very limited and keeping the cats happy and healthy is our top priority. The cats have a private Retreat room for those moments that they need to revitalize themselves.
Q. How many people will be in the lounge at once?
A. We limit the number of humans to 25 per hour to ensure a good time will be had by all. Cats can become overstimulated with too much excitement and their well-being is our greatest concern. Cats also love to sleep so we want to make sure the cat-to-people ratio isn’t disappointing for guests.
Q. Can I adopt a cat I meet at Feline Good Social Club?
A. With an approved application, yes! Head over to the Long Beach Felines website to get more information.
Q. Can I bring my cat to be put up for adoption?
A. We're sorry but Feline Good Social Club does not offer additional adoption services outside of our partnership with Long Beach Felines.
Q. Can I volunteer as a helper in the cat lounge?
A. Have fun for a good cause! We encourage everybody to be involved in their community and do have volunteer opportunities. Getting these precious cats adopted is our core mission and it does take time and effort to accomplish this goal. We have many levels of participation, from monitoring the cat lounge and updating social media, to writing bios and capturing our cats on film showing off their best personalities.
If you would like to become a foster for cats or kittens, we welcome your application. Some kitties need extra time and attention before they’re ready to be shown in public. The rescue provides all the training, supplies (such as food and litter), and pays for all the medical care associated with the rescue. All you need to provide is a safe place and as much love and attention as you can spare.
