Tour Rules

  • Remember this is our cats’ home. Please respect them.
  • Do not provoke the cats in any way, especially by growling or snarling at them.
  • If a cat growls or snarls at you, he/she is communicating his/her anxiety or irritation. Please walk away.  Do not growl or snarl back.
  • Do not try to coax a cat out of his/her den. Most cats are simply resting, but one or two are asking to be left alone.  Please respect their wishes by walking away.
  • Do not rattle or climb the cages.
  • Do not throw anything in the enclosures.
  • If a cat turns his/her backside towards you and raises his/her tail, then sidestep, you are about to get sprayed.  Do not back up as they have a very long range.
  • Do not run. This could entice a cat to “chase” you.  If a cat runs into another cat, a fight might erupt.
  • Some of our cats love to interact with the visitors. Feel free to “oooh” & “aaaah,” chuff and play hide and seek with the cats.  They love the attention.
  • Our house cats roam freely on the property. They are friendly but can become irritable from unwanted attention.  We ask that you do not handle the house cats.
