We spend hours and hours every day with our 12 furry children and there is one thing that we notice consistently - they sure know how to relax!
Cats appear to be experts in mindfulness, as they sit, lay, or stand quietly observing or resting as the world goes by. They are totally devoid of external pressures, and seem to effortlessly fall back into a state of zen whenever they so choose.
There is a lot to learn from them.
We have teamed up with Pause HQ to run sessions of relaxation with the cats where we will practice meditation techniques in the company of the furry zen masters.
Our hearts naturally open when we sit with cats: both literally (they lower blood pressure and stress), and metaphorically (because they offer us unconditional love and acceptance). They also help us connect to these qualities within ourselves during meditation.
Cats live in the moment: through sharing meditation with them they can (and will!) help us to do the same. Let them teach you how to let go of worries and distractions so you can embrace feelings of gratitude + peace.
To optimise your wellbeing. Meditation provides many health benefits. Stress relief, increased focus/ memory and better sleep are just a few reasons to meditate, all supported by scientific research. Who better to learn and practice meditation with than 12 furry zen masters!

This is a brand new initiative for The Cat Cafe. This class will be great for beginners in meditation, and for those with more experience who would like to learn about engaging animals in their practice. Carolyn's methods can be shared with any and all animals, so you can use the techniques learned with any of your pets or creature friends, not just cats.
We all need to take a moment to relax and decompress, what better time than stressful December, and what better way than with the masterful teaching of rescue cats!
Places strictly limited, email your interest if you miss out.

Our new Cat Pockets are a slimline version of the old window hammocks. This means your kitty still gets a great view, but now the hammock takes up much less window space, and stays up longer.
The Cat Pocket is much slimmer than the original, only around 20cm from the glass, which puts less pressure on the suction cups and your glazing. The suction cups are also bigger at 8cm diameter, and use a push-and-screw mechanism to gain extra pulling power to keep the hammock up for longer.
The rigid felt pocket dimensions are approximately 20cm deep, by 20cm tall, by 72cm wide.
Each Cat Pocket is rated to hold up to 15kg - Mr. Fox (pictured) is a medium to large sized 6.1kg cat.
The rigid felt is tough under feline use, and holds up well to scratching and jumping.
Your Cat Pocket comes already assembled with three suction cups. To install, ensure that the window surface and suction cups are clean, dry and free of dust.
Unscrew the suction cup fastener until it is almost coming off (but is still attached), then push the suction cup into the glass while screwing the fastener down clockwise to remove unwanted air.
Check the suction cups once a week to ensure your kitty is safe. They can be screwed and unscrewed as needed.
Hard felt should not be wet to clean. Instead, use a lint roller, or a damp cloth.
All orders over $50 receive Free standard shipping!
