This list cannot be complete without the most popular cat cafes you can find in Auckland: Purrs & Beans NZ! 

In fact, it’s New Zealand’s longest-running cat café and a forever home to a special clowder of rescue cats. They pride themselves on being extremely welfare-focused, which is why entry is at set times with a limit to the number of guests in every session.

Also, booking in advance is an absolute must. It’s not just about getting your daily cat fix; it’s also about respecting these furry residents’ space and ensuring they’re not overwhelmed by too many visitors at once.

And speaking of visitors, there’s a bit of an age restriction in place – sorry, kids under 10; this one’s for the older cat aficionados. If you’re between 10 and 14, you’ll need to bring along a responsible adult (read: someone over 18) to join in on the fun.
