Purrs & Beans is Auckland's only cat cafe, an independently run sanctuary for 13 rescue cats. All donations contribute towards their care.

  Auckland

Purrs & Beans (formerly BaristaCats Café in the city) is Auckland’s only cat café, now located in the heart of the ‘village with a view’ Birkenhead.

We are a small, independently run, social enterprise and sanctuary to a clowder of very special resident rescue cats, all of whom are older and some with special needs. Because of this, admission into the cat area is restricted to 10+ as part of our SPCA welfare plan which we enforce strictly to ensure the safety and welfare of our cats.

Essentially we are a cross between a cafe and a cat shelter and with the latter endeavour, reality is caring for 13 cats is expensive. Additionally older and special needs cats means the need for supplements as well as a greater potential for regular veterinary visits which incur significant costs.

Everything spent at Purrs & Beans from booking in a visit to purchasing merchandise contributes towards the cats’ welfare and helps us continue to run the premises a.k.a their forever home.

This portal provides an opportunity for guests and supporters of our cause to donate more - if they wish and are in a position to do so. This year (2020) has hit us hard with prolonged closure due to government lockdowns as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

It is our goal to provide an enjoyable and enriching space for both humans and cats alike where we hope our guests not only have a purrific time but learn a little too. We believe we have created a tranquil space where our kitties can live their best lives and those in need of a bit of feline therapy can visit.

Your support, supports us!

All funds go towards the continued care and welfare of the cats

An update on our Snow Queen, Orson  22 March 2020

Posted by: BCC 2.0 LTD

In light of all the stress and anxiety lately we are wanting to share a little bit of hope with you all.

In December last year we shared the awful news that Orson most likely had cancer. However, we also shared a small glimmer of hope the prognosis was incorrect and that the treatment plan may prove successful.

In the months since beginning her treatment our Snow Queen has gained significant condition and had improvements in her blood tests. Her quality of life is incredibly important to us and we are so glad that she is comfortable and happy. Whatever the outcome to her treatment we are also incredibly grateful for your continued support.

For now we will continue her treatment with all our fingers, toes, paws and tails crossed.

Love and purrs,

The BaristaCats Family
