Purrington’s – A Cafe With A Goal
Purrington’s Cat Lounge has been serving Oregonians their daily cup of cuteness since 2015. The lounge is a relaxed and inviting space where adoptable cats and people can interact with each other. The ultimate goal is to find loving forever homes for the cats, which come from the Cat Adoption Team shelter in Sherwood Oregon. Staff at Purrington’s can help get you going on the adoption process if you find your feline soul mate at the lounge.
The Cafe at Purringtons offers tea, coffee, wine, beer, and delicious food as well as seasonal menu items. Check out their menu here.
The Purrington’s Rules
If you’re going to visit Purrington’s, there are a few rules to help everyone (including the cats) have an enjoyable time and stay safe.
- You can’t bring your own pet to Purrington’s. Instead, go and enjoy the companionship of the adoptable cats there who are looking for love.
- Children under the age of 13 are welcome so long as there is one supervising adult to attend to them. One adult must supervise for every two children under 13 years old and the adult must keep each child within arms length and keep a watchful eye at all times.
- You can take your own food and drinks into the lounge.
- While in the cat lounge please do not: pick up the cats, wake sleeping cats, feed human food to the cats, shout or make loud noises, use face time or use speaker phones.
- While at the cat lounge please do: sanitize hands before entering the lounge, use a quiet voice, follow all rules, and enjoy your time with these adorable felines!
There’s a small entry fee to go into the lounge which covers care for the cats. If you don’t follow the rules you may be asked to leave the lounge with no refund of the entry fee.
