Q: Where Do the Cats Come From?
A: The Orlando Cat Café has proudly partnered with the highly regarded 501(c)3 non-profit organization, SPCA Florida headquartered in Lakeland, Florida. Founded in 1979, SPCA Florida is dedicated to improving the lives of pets and people in the community, while providing care, compassion and hope to more than 4,000 homeless animals entering their doors each year. Open to the public, their McClurg Animal Medical Center is a state-of-the-art veterinary facility that heals and helps 50,000 patients annually. Thousands more pets and people are served through their community outreach and education programs.
Q: How Many Cats Will be in The Cat Play Area?
A: There will be approximately 12-15 cats and kittens in the Cat Play Area at any given time, all available for adoption.
Q: Are the cats available for adoption spayed/neutered already?
A: Yes! All of the cats at The Orlando Cat Café are examined by SPCA Florida before arrival and are spayed/neutered, tested for feline leukemia and feline aids, receive vaccinations for feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, calici virus and rabies (if age appropriate), receive monthly flea and are microchipped.
Q: My Cat Loves Coffee — Can I Bring My Own Cat?
A: Sorry but no. The Cat Café is strictly for cats and kittens looking for their forever homes.
Q: Why Are There Designated Visiting Times for Children Under 9?
A: Please refer to our page on children visiting under 9 years old for more information.
Q: Why Do You Have An Entry Fee?
A: The small entrance fee is necessary to cover the cost of housing our feline friends in a comfortable and cool environment. The entry fee also helps us provide staff as well as the costs associated with running a business.
Q: Do The Cats Come in Contact with the Food Preparation Area?
A: Absolutely not. The Cat Play Area is a completely separate area from the cafe” section of our building. Not only are cats not allowed, but employees don’t share the space either. Minch Coffee employees do not serve food nor clean up in the Cat Play Area and our Cat Adoption Counselors do not serve food from the café.

Q: How Do I Start My Own Cat Cafe?
A: Starting your own cat cafe is a dream held by many people (trust us, we receive several emails a week from you all!). Before contacting us for advice on how to get started, we first advise that you visit other cat cafes, in person. Not just one, but as many cat cafes as you possibly can. This will provide insight on things you may, or may not like, to do in your cafe in the future.
Because every state, county, and city has different rules and regulations, we cannot and will not provide any advice or information on how to work with your local jurisdiction. We advise you look into this yourself as every location is unique.
If you are visiting our cafe, we would be happy to meet with you for a face-to-face meeting; however, we will request a donation be made to SPCA Florida for the consultation time. We will not answer emails or phone call if you have not done the due diligence listed above. Thank you for your understanding.
