Meet our 14-20 free-roaming cats in the Cat Zone! Featuring murals from local artists, play structure replicas of Oakland landmarks, and our cats available for adoption, the Cat Zone can accommodate up to 12 visitors per hour. You'll also be allowed to visit cats in our newly expanded Studios, pending availability. The RAWR Coffee Bar at Cat Town offers refreshments for purchase, as well as tasty treats for people (and some for cats!) that can be brought into the Cat Zone.

Reserve your one-hour visit to the Cat Zone below (strongly recommended). Entry to the Cat Zone for both adults and children is $10 per person – regardless of whether you have made a reservation in advance. Your visit supports Cat Town’s life-saving work!

with Tactica Krav Maga Institute

Children ages 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult (no more than two children per adult). We make sure to provide our cats with a relaxing space, so we can’t guarantee that the cats will always be active or awake during visits.

To help ensure a safe and relaxing experience for our cats, no catnip, no laser pointers, and no outside treats are permitted in the Cat Zone. There are small, portioned bags of RAWR treats are available for sale at the front desk.

Please note that reservations are non-refundable. Walk-in reservations are welcome as space permits, and can be made in person at RAWR Coffee Bar at Cat Town.

Thank you for helping Oakland’s most vulnerable cats with your visit! We look forward to seeing you.

Please Note: If you are looking to adopt and would like to meet any of our cats, please email (there is no fee for adoption appointments).
