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 get to know and play with 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!
We have made some adjustments to our usual routines to accommodate safe & sanitary practices for our guests due to COVID-19. Please review our new procedures before your next visit.
Q. How much is admission?
A. We offer a 50-minute cat lounge session for $15.
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 limit the number of people entering to maintain a safe & calm environment for the benefit of resident cats.
Q. Do you have a cancellation policy?
A. Yes, you can reschedule or cancel your experience for a full refund at least 24 hours in advance with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations within less than 24 hours from your visit are not refundable. You can review our full policy here.
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 there is the unfortunate possibility of a serious injury, 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. We prefer that no one pick up cats at any time and children are never 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. Not at this time, but we are currently offering private sessions! Our regular private session is for groups of up to 8 guests and our jumbo private session is for groups of up to 15 guests. Booking a private session to host an event at the lounge (which includes decorations, activities, food, and/or products and services brought from outside the lounge) is prohibited.
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. Not at this time. COVID-19 sanitation measures require that food and beverages are not consumed in the lounge.
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. Our maximum occupancy during this pandemic will be 20 guests per hour. Ensuring that our guests can comfortably practice social distancing is a priority for us. 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. Where can I park when visiting the lounge?
A. Check out our guide below!
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. Absolutely! It takes a community of volunteers to bring all this goodness and enjoyment to the Lounge. There’s plenty of work – and fun – to do. Cats need people and that could be you! Our current volunteer needs can be found on the Volunteer With Us page.
