When you arrive, please enter through the Café. You can purchase anything from Axum’s extensive menu. If you want to remain on the “Café” side, and look through the viewing window, you may do so. If you would like to enter the Cat Play/Adoption Area, then you will pay for admission at the same time you purchase your food and you will be given an admission sticker. Any food purchased in the café may be brought into the Cat Play Area. But we ask that no outside food be brought in and that you don’t feed the cats any food.
During non peak times, you may enter the Cat Play Area right away and your admission is good for 1 hour of meet and greet with the cats and kittens. During peak times, a reservation may be necessary. Please note that for the safety of the cats, we may have to limit the amount of people in the Cat Play Area at any given time.
Once you enter the Cat Play Area, we suggest that you sit down and let the cats come to you. If you are a potential adopter looking to provide one of our felines with their forever home, you will be able to learn more about the personality of the cat. You can also ask our volunteers about their behaviors and they will be happy to match you with your perfect cat!
