Frisky Business “Cat Cafe” Opens in Palm Springs

After 16 months of preparation, Coachella Valley’s first “Cat Café” opened in Palm Springs’ Rimrock Plaza mall.

Billed by owner Claire Rogers as a local, local business, the café allows customers to buy coffee or food from local vendors like the Coachella Valley Coffee Co. Join Chef Tanya’s Kitchen, shop for merchandise like handcrafted cat-themed greeting cards by local artists, and of course, hang out with a room full of feline friends.

The cafe’s cats are all from the Palm Springs Animal Shelter and can be adopted directly from the company. A core part of the café’s mission is to help socialize animals, allowing them to meet potential owners in a more natural and less stressful environment than a shelter, Rogers said.
