HOW TO Adopt


Every cat has its own unique purrsonality that you can truly experience in our free range environment. At Purrfect Day Café, our resident family of cats are free to roam around and be themselves. You’ll be able to see all the little quirks that make them so lovable, and better decide whether they’d be the right fit for your family.

Even if you’re not in a position to adopt, cuddling our kitties is the socialization they need to help make them more adoptable in the future! This concept is a “disruptor” approach to the adoption process we call cuddles, not cages.

When you adopt from Purrfect Day Cafe you are adopting through one of our 3 Tri-State Shelter partners.

Purrfect Day Cafe success stories




If you have space in your home and heart a Purrfect Day Cafe kitty makes an amazing new furriend for your family.

Visiting the cafe

Every dollar you spend goes to the health of the cafe. When the cafe is healthy then cats always benefit.


You can go to Amazon for a list of our commonly used items for the cat lounge. If you have lightly used cat furniture, food, or toys please donate them to your local shelters or rescue.


If you have 8 hours a month to help socialize kitties and help in the cat room, we would love to have you.

Share and review

Our primary way of being heard is through social media. If you enjoyed your time at Purrfect Day and want to share our current events or give us a review, it always helps us to keep the mission strong.

Support our annual fundraising events

Every year Purrfect Day puts on our Kitten shower and the Stray Cat strut where 100% of our profit goes to support our shelter partners.
Purrfect Day Cafe adoption process

If you adopted a kitty at the cafe and have follow-up questions on health, care, medical records, or behavior issues, please contact the shelter on your paperwork, where your kitty originally received medical care.

Purrfect Day Cafe is a foster and adoption center and utilizes the expertise of several shelters from across the Tri-State area to assist all adopters with post-adoption resources in the best way possible. Each of these shelters has the right resources to best help with post-adoption follow-up.

We cannot reserve kitties over the phone or social media.


If you’re in the market for a new furry family member, it all starts with a visit to our cat room! Each potential adopter must spend at least 30 minutes with the cat they plan to adopt. This is the best way to ensure you’ve found the right fit! We cannot reserve kitties over social media.

Once you have found your Purrfect match, the adoption process starts with a simple survey about yourself and your animal history. Once that has been approved through our shelter partners, one of our adoption counselors will start the process of transitioning your new furrever friend to their new furrever home!

When you adopt at the Purrfect Day Cafe, you are adopting directly from Paws Rescue, Lawrenceburg, IN., League of Animal Welfare, or Cincinnati Animal Care. All kitties are fully up to date on their vaccines, they have been spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Each kitty comes with 30 days of complimentary pet insurance and a full copy of their medical records.

How soon you can take your kitty home depends on the adoption approval process and how many kitties are currently at the cafe. If you need a little extra time to decide we can provide a 24-hour hold with a donation of $25.00 that goes directly to the appropriate shelter partner.

Purrfect Day Cafe FAQ

Taking home your furrever friend

After spending time in the kitten lounge interacting with the kitties, and once you have found the right fit, the adoption process is simple from there. You will complete an adoption application that will be reviewed for approval with one of our adoption counselors. If your adoption application is approved, please know that some kitties may be able to go home the same day, or you may be asked to wait 24-28 hours to come back for your kitty. Your adoption counselor will be able to tell you the take home time before you make your decision to adopt.
