Welcome to Cat Café Mad!

Cat Cam

Please note: Until further notice, we will be closed and not accepting reservations Monday – Wednesday due to construction on our cafe and creperie. Follow us on Facebook for more updates!
Kickstarters: WE DID IT! We’re still hoping to build a cat tunnel in addition to our other renovations, so please continue to donate! Thank you all!!!


Pardon our mess!

Our café is being converted into a full-service café and creperie during September – but our cats are still welcoming visitors! Entry is $5.00 with free self-service drinks while supplies last.

Children 5-7: Please make a reservation to visit the café!



The purpose of Cat Café Mad is to give the public a chance to experience the love, fun, and happiness that comes from owning a cat while in a relaxing café atmosphere.  In our cattery, we house adopted cats – our “permanent residents” – as well as foster cats from two local shelters. Our goal is to help bring the worldwide model of cat cafés to the U.S. and provide a space for potential pet owners to interact with adoptable cats.

There is a $5.00 cover charge to enter the cattery. Loyalty rewards, gift cards, and memberships are available online and in the café. We also offer weekly events such as Movie Nights, Yoga with Cats, and Kitten Time for only $7.00 when you register through our Meetup Group: www.meetup.com/madison_cats_lovers



20 Friendly Cats

Our cats are approachable, cuddly, and of course, extremely cute! Click on the Cats tab above to learn more about our permanent residents and our current foster cats. Though our felines are usually gentle, they do still have claws with the potential to harm. We therefore ask visitors to sign a waiver in case a cat decides you move like a mouse. For this same reason, we unfortunately don’t allow children under the age of 5 into the cattery, and we ask that children age 5-7 make a reservation online to visit.


Coming Soon: Full-Service Café and Creperie!

We’ll be opening our newly-renovated café in the month of September. Our menu will feature barista coffee, smoothies, hot cocoa made with real melted chocolate, and delicious sweet and savory crepes! Visitors will get the chance to sit down, watch the cats through our new bubble wall while enjoying food and a drink, and then hop on over into the cattery to get some kitty snuggle time in. Keep an eye out for new hours once the café and creperie opens: 8 AM – 8 PM, Tuesday – Sunday.

Comfortable Seating

We have plenty of comfy chairs and couches, but most visitors like our mats in the middle – all the better to play with the cats! Park your drink on a table and get up close and personal with our residents.

For all the students out there, our tables and free WiFi mean you can study with ease – provided the cats don’t distract you too much!



Don’t forget, our hours will be changing soon with the opening of the café and creperie! Until then:

Monday – Wednesday: CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS until further notice
Thursday: 3 PM – 8 PM
Friday: 11 AM – 9 PM
Saturday: 11 AM – 10 PM
Sunday: 11 AM – 8 PM
