What you'll do

Cat Therapy is a Cat Cafe that fosters anywhere from 10-25 cats at a time in a beautiful, cage free environment we've designed with their happiness in mind. Visiting us through this online experience is a great virtual activity for friends, family, special events and even corporate team bonding experiences! We will start by showing you a little peek at the beautiful neighborhood we're located in, Downtown Santa Barbara, CA so you feel like you're here with us! We will then tell you about our concept, how our unique approach to rescue has helped save and re-home cats hundreds of cats and what we do to ensure their physical and emotional health. Then, we will introduce you to our rescued kitties and we'll tell you where each cat came from and how our program is helping them. You'll also learn about their personalities and get fun views of their antics, all in real time! Experience timeline and content may vary depending on the cats mood. There will also be time for you to ask any questions you may have about cat rescue, cat behavior or even entrepreneurship! Grab a coffee or a glass of wine, bring your favorite people to this experience, then seat back and enjoy!

This was such a magical experience! If you are an animal lover (and especially if you are a cat lover) then you would love this. Catalina was such a lovely host and made this experience all the more perfect. I got to learn so many new things about cats and animal rescue today.

Catalina hosted us for a very special remote birthday for my mom. She did a great job of engaging all ages, ages 4-79, and has a wonderful, approachable style. And the cats were adorable.

My friends really enjoyed this. They do a fantastic job with the cats and animal lovers will find it worth it to support this cat cafe. Catalina shared good information and answered our specific questions.

The host definitely loves cats. But this was the most boring experience. She could have played games with the cats or with the people on the call. I would not recommend this. Boring.

As a Santa Barbaran I absolutely love this cat cafe, and it was so neat to book a private visit for myself and friends living near and far and share the cat cafe experience with them. Catalina was knowledgeable and great at making sure we got to know the cats and their “purr”sonalities in a virtual setting.

We used this Experience for my daughter's 10th birthday party and Catalina went all-out to make sure she tailored her talk and the tour just for the girls, focusing on what they were most interested in, and they just loved it. It was a really special way to mark the birthday!
