Questions? We have answers.

I want to visit. When are you opening? Where are you going to be located?

We found the purrfect location for Milwaukee’s first cat café. 2021 E. Ivanhoe Place on Milwaukee's East Side, adjacent to Black Cat Alley. We anticipate opening in early summer 2018! Follow us on social media and join our mailing list for all the latest and greatest updates.


Cool! A cat café! Can I bring my own cat?

Nope, we have you covered in the cat department. The best part? All of our cats are adoptable through the Lakeland Animal Shelter!


Will I be able to bring my kids?

Of course! Bring in the whole family. You never know, you might even leave with a new member.


Wine & cats? Really? This sounds too good to be true.

Yep, it’s true. Coffee, wine, beer & other non-alcoholic beverages will be available to enjoy in the café or the cat lounge…in the company of adoptable cats!


What if I get hungry?

Don’t fret. We have small bites and sweet treats that will satisfy every appetite, including those of our vegan and gluten-free friends.


I’ve heard about cat yoga. Will Sip & Purr offer this?

You bet! Get ready to roll out your mat with the coolest cats in town.

Where do the cats come from?

All of our adoptable cats come from the Lakeland Animal Shelter, in Elkhorn, WI. For over fifteen years, Lakeland Animal Shelter has been using a cage-less open cat colony to facilitate adoptions...yep, they're experts at making connections.

Are we looking for vendor partners?

Yes! SIP & PURR will house approximately 8-12 cats at one time. That’s a lot of cat food and kitty litter! We'd love to give our cats a top of the line lounge and a variety of toys. If you’re a vendor and you’d like to partner with us, drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you.

What will the adoption fee include?

All of our cats are 100% ready for their new homes! Spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchips, necessary medical tests and's all been taken care of before our kitties arrive at SIP & PURR. All they need now, is you.
