Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I bring my cat?

While we are sure your cat is really awesome, we ask you to leave him at home.  All of our cats arrive with a clean bill of health from MEOW Foundation, and are socialized to the environment for the comfort of both the kitties and our guests.

What if I'm allergic to cats?

Not a problem!  We have a full service café with lots of comfortable seating and a great view of the Kitty Kingdom.  The two areas have separate ventilation for your comfort.  No kitties are ever transferred through the cafe, so you should not have any allergy issues in our cafe.

Why is there a fee to visit the kitties?

While our primary goal is to provide you with a unique environment to fall in love with your next 'fur baby', we do charge a nominal fee to help pay for rent and care for the cats.

How do I adopt one of the resident kitties?

We work closely with Meow Foundation to ensure our kitties find the perfect home.  

Adoption applications are available online at http://www.meowfoundation.com/adopt/application-form/.   Just fill out the general application, and then send an email to adopt@meowfoundation.com letting them know which kitty you have fallen in love with. A MEOW Foundation adoption specialist will aim to contact you within one business day, and adoptions are on a first come first serve basis.

Is the Cafe and Kitty Kingdom wheelchair accessible?

Absolutely!  We are fully wheelchair accessible in our Cafe and Kitty Kingdom.  It was our goal to create a space that all our furriends could enjoy the cafe and the kitties.

Why do we only partner with MEOW Foundation?

We understand that there are many at different rescues throughout Calgary, and we have selected MEOW Foundation as they are a cat focused no-kill foundation dedicated to improving the lives of Calgary cats.  By focusing on a single parntership we are able to manage the health, care, intake, and adoption process smoothly.  Our hope is to make a meaningful impact on Calgary cats in need, and ultimately make a PAWsitive impact to all Calgary cats.

Can I surrender my cat to Regal Cat Cafe?

Unfortunately we are not able to take in rescue cats here at Regal Cat Cafe.  All our kitties arrive in tip top health from MEOW Foundation and introduction of an outside cat would put them at risk.  We recommend reaching out to the local Calgary rescues to see who is able to accept your kitty for surrender.

Why are the cats separate from the cafe?

We have worked closely with Alberta Health and Safety to design a space that is safe and healthy for our guests.  This is why we have a completely separate are called the Kitty Kingdom for our cats to relax and play.  We also have special doors for intake and adoptions so no kitty will go through our cafe at any point.  We strive to have the cleanest and healthiest cafe for our guests, and this helps ensure that all food and drink is free from kitty hair.
