The Nine Lives Lounge’s goal is to provide a safe, open environment for our furry friends, so, we have a few simple but important rules.


  • Guests are welcome to bring food and drinks from the lounge into the cat area. We also encourage our guests to visit our friends at Allegheny Creamery & Crepes and Black Dog Cafe and bring their food to the Lounge. 
  • Please do not tempt or feed the cats with human food. 

Be Gentle

  • Do not run, chase, hit, or grab the cats.
  • We encourage our guests to take photos, just please turn off your flash.
  • Cats do not like to fly. Please do not pick up any of the cats. 
  • Cats sleep an average of 15 hours a day. They generally do not mind being pet while they sleep, but please do not startle or awaken them.
Be Calm
  • Loud noises and sudden actions will scare the cats. 
  • No running, yelling, or loud voices.
  • No speakerphone, video calls, or audio from personal devices.
Visiting with Children
  • Well-supervised children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult guardian. Nine Lives Lounge welcomes and encourages children of all ages. Please supervise your children so we do not have to implement an age requirement and our friends of all ages can enjoy the cat lounge.
  •  Guests must digitally agree to our terms & conditions when they arrive. The waiver explains that cats are sometimes unpredictable and can cause accidents. The wavier states that you agree to the Lounge Rules, take responsibility when handling the cats, and do not hold Nine Lives Lounge, Central PA Humane Society, or any other entity liable for anything that may occur during your visit. 


While we’d love to meet your furry friend, all of our cats are vetted and we try our best to combine cats that are used to communal settings and people. We do not want to mix in any unknown variables that may cause stress.

While reservations are not required, they are highly encouraged as the lounge has limited space and may fill up quick.

To make reservations, please visit our booking page.

The Nine Lives Lounge is a home to a varying number of cats. The fee covers rent, utilities, and other expenses required to keep the doors open and the lights on.

Yes! Nine Lives Lounge encourages kids of all ages to visit our cats. Kids under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a guardian adult. 

We ask that your children be well-supervised so that we are not forced to implement an age requirement and friends of all ages can enjoy the cats.

Cat hair in food is about as authentic as it gets, however, you do not have to worry about that. 

Nine Lives Lounge partners with a local baker that prepares all baked goods off-site in a commercial kitchen. There are other pre-packaged snacks available as well.

You also have the option to enjoy your snacks in the cafe area where there are no cats. 

The Nine Live Lounge will be sourcing cats from the Central PA Humane Society. All cats are vetted and ready for adoption.

Learn more at the Central PA Humane Society website.

No. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to process admissions. 

Animal drop-offs are criminal offenses and will be pursued.

Please reach out to or contact us here. Please be specific about your offering, your rates, and provide a portfolio. We love to support local and favor local artists/vendors.

Nine Lives Lounge will have adoption applications on-site and can aid you in completing them. After an application is completed, we will pass it along to the Central PA Humane Society. Applicants will need to meet with the Humane Society to process the application and pay the application fee. After your application is processed and approved by the Central PA Humane Society, applicants will return to Nine Lives Lounge with a carrier and will be able to take their new friend home. 

If you are allergic to cats but would like to check out the cafe area and enjoy a coffee and snack, there is a non-cat area that you can visit.
