Special Events at Papa’s
At Papa’s, it’s more than just cats. We offer special events each month and throughout the year to make your experiences more memorable. All special events REQUIRE A RESERVATION in advance. You can register for these at our RESERVATION PAGE.
Free Coffee Fridays, all day Friday.
Buy walk-in cat time, get a free drip coffee or hot tea on the house!
Kitten Event (60-minute reservation)
Make a standard (regular) 60-minute reservation. This event does not have a special event for reserving to allow as many people to attend as possible.
During this 3-hour event, our regular kitties will take a break as we will fill the cafe with 20-30 adoptable kittens!!! If interested in adopting a kitten, fill out an adoption survey on our website to get first pick of a kitten! Note: Kittens are very sensitive and get sick easily. We encourage visitors to remove shoes during their visit to keep outside contaminants away from the kittens; you may want to bring socks. Additionally, our kitten events are usually VERY busy, so it is best to complete the entry waiver ahead of time.
