Important Info!

We promise- even though we are covered in tarps, we are NOT closed!

Construction is still active- the CNY Regional Market is conducting reparations to our part of the building exterior. This will not affect our operations, but it will mean we will only have access to our indoor entrance- the main outdoor entrance will be out of service for the next few weeks. Our building signs have also been removed temporarily, which has made it difficult for new friends to find us.

You can find the commons entrances in the following places:

*on the Park Street side/front next to M&T Bank

*on the market side/rear next to Able II Driving School.

There is still plenty of parking, though a few spots will be blocked to avoid any damage to personal property, but we wanted to give visitors a heads up on the situation. As the building is over 100 years old, these repairs are out of our control and are doing our best to work around it. We hope to see you soon, the residents will need some extra love with the extra "excitement"!

Who we are...

Syracuse's premier cat cafe! In partnership with local rescues and shelters, we allow cats to feel more at home as residents in our cafe. You get a better idea of what they're all about and if you are ready to give them a forever home they can be adopted.

Prepare yourself to be grounded & connect to the world to find happiness and comfort! Pet some cats, warm your soul, feel the love!

Homeschool Hangout Hour

In partnership with our yoga instructor, Shonna, we came up with the idea of a dedicated session for homeschoolers!

Next session is Thursday 12.15!

$15- 30 minute visit for one parent and one kid (12 and under must have an adult), plus a small drink for each

$8- 30 minute visit for one kid only (13 and up may enter alone) and a small drink

Extend your visit for an hour for an additional $5 for parent/kid combo, and $2 for single kid

We take pride in keeping everyone safe from covid and providing a fun, relaxing environment to destress. Come say hello, make some new friends (human or feline), and enjoy a little time out!

Please note: We want everyone to enjoy themselves, but please keep in mind that this is an adoption facilitation center, and not a petting zoo/daycare. Being calm and relaxed is the best way to visit! If guests of any age are disruptive, we have the right to ask you to leave. Thank you!

Late Night with Pawsitivitea CNY

We're going to continue our Tuesday nights into December! While it hasn't been super busy, it's nice to see people interact with all the residents when they're more awake! More of the night crawlers tend to hang out in the lounge in the open, so it's worth it for the after-work/after-classes destress zone!

We also have a new addition to the lounge- a kotatsu! Anime and manga fans will know, but for those who don't, its a small, heated table with a blanket where you gather around and chat, unwind, study, and most importantly, pet cats!

The kotatsu will be available all days we are open, but thought something like this would be a nice touch for a late night session. We know finals will be coming, so come get some work done and get comfy!

**Bring your college ID to our Tuesday night sessions and get a free small drink of choice!**
