We are promoting cat adoption while getting older adult cats out of the shelter environment and into a home environment in which they thrive. The health and well-being of café cats comes first and foremost. We believe every adoptable cat needs a home for life and humans become better people when they are with animals. Spending time with an animal produces a feeling of comfort and well-being. Our interactive kitty environment benefits both our human customers and our café cats. We will donate our profits to the Small Lives Matter Kitten Rescue and share their dream that one day animals will no longer be killed in America’s shelters. Every life matters, no matter how small.
With every visit, you help a shelter cat in need. Thank you for supporting us!

We are a cause-focused business, which means that our business operates in order to support our cause to save the lives of homeless cats and kittens.
The cat experience fees enable us to pay for housing, medical care, spay and neuter surgeries, food and supplies for these cats that are looking for a home for life. Using a cat café business model allows us support Small Lives Matter Kittens Rescue and their work. This partnership provides the rescue with a full-time foster home where we the cats may stay and provide the funding to pay for their care.
We need visitors and we will fail without your support.
Our kitties live with us in our friendly home environment instead being caged at a shelter. We believe cats are curious, active animals that need plenty of room to play and roam. Your visits fund our café. Thanks to you, we are able to save more lives.
Frisky Cat Cafe typically provides home between 20-30 resident cats at any given time, which means that there are significantly less cats at the shelter in need of care. Because of this, our partner shelters (St Johns County Pet Center and Animal Care and Protective Services and Lake City Humane Society) are able to dedicate more time, resources, and volunteers to saving more cats, dogs, and other animals in need.
We partner with other rescues in the area like Feline Canopy of Care who rescue community cats and have a wide network of TNR (trap, neuter and release) volunteers helping to keep homeless cats off the streets in St Johns and Flagler counties.
The frequency of cat purrs may help humans heal. Scientists believe that the benefits of loving a cat may even extend to our health. Studies have shown that people are less likely to die of a heart attack if they own a cat (Adnan I Qureshi, 2009).
Perhaps even more interesting are the reports of cats’ purrs helping people heal.
This is an age-old question and one to which scientists don’t know the exact answer yet. However, it is known that cats often purr when they are happy, sometimes when they’re nervous, very often when they’re hurt, and sometimes when their human is hurt or sick.
In fact, there are many stories of cats cuddling up with and purring for extended times for their sick
For centuries, healers have used the power of sound in their work. It is believed that certain frequencies or tones of sound can have varying healing effects on the body. Here are some of the ways that purrs might help humans with health concerns:
