Upon walking in you will be greeted by friendly staff that will assist you in checking in and relay important information about regarding the cats. While checking in you will also be able to order a specialty drink and/or menu item to enjoy during your stay. You can choose to do so outside of the cat zone or at one of the tables inside the lounge area with the cats.
What’s the menu like?
There is a variety of savory items to purchase at Mauhaus such as samosas, flatbreads, and squash hummus. But also some sweet treats like cupcakes, cookies, scones and more that are all made in haus! Your $10 reservation fee includes a free beverage so you can enjoy a spicy chai or latte while snuggling up to purrr-fect felines.
Where do the cats come from?
The majority of the cats at Mauhaus are from a local shelter, Stray Haven Rescue. As if the cute kitties didn’t mesmerize you enough, now you have the ability to take one home! So far they have found fur-ever homes for over 20 cats since opening in November 2016.
