What is a Cat Cafe?

A Cat Cafe is basically a big foster home for homeless cats.

A place where they can roam free, interact with each other, spend some time with us humans, and just live a happier life while waiting for their forever homes! Our cafe, The Shabby Tabby, will be a place where you can come and enjoy unlimited hot or cold beverages, hang out with our adoptable cats, and enjoy a snack or 2!  We have vegan and gluten free options available.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to foster an environment where people can relax and enjoy a cup of coffee while experiencing the joy, playfulness, and love that shelter cats have to offer. We aim to provide homeless cats an environment in which they can thrive, and to unite them with their forever families.

About Us

Where on Long Island can you have a cup of coffee and a pastry while hanging out with some adorable adoptable cats? Nowhere! The cats at The Shabby Tabby are free roaming in the cafe which is a thousand times better than being pent up in cages all day. Cats at pet stores and shelters are often scared and shy, and unable to show their true personalities to potential adopters, and visitors. Being able to hang out and feel comfortable in their environment is so beneficial to these kitties, and you.

The Shabby Tabby offers many more kinds of experiences with the cats than just coffee and snacks. Every week we will have different events such as Yoga with cats, Paint Nights, Drag Queen Bingo, Karaoke with cats, Crafts, Seasonal events (pics with Santa/Easter Bunny, pumpkin carving, cats in costumes) and much more.

At The Shabby Tabby we will hold educational events such as Trap-Neuter-Release classes. TNR is the most effective approach to managing the growing population of community cats. Education is key to solving these issues. At The Shabby Tabby we will have plenty of information on all kinds of feline related topics.

We are partnered with Golden Paw Society, who’s mission is to rescue cats solely from high-kill shelters.   All of our cats will come directly from their adoption center, and the adoption process will be according to their policies. By fostering 25-30 of their cats at a time, it frees up space in their adoption center for other homeless cats to occupy.

Ari Hi! I'm Ari, 14 year old plump gentleman! I'm currently the oldest cat at the cafe but you wouldn't be able to tell by my agility and the fact that I'm always happily seeking out a toy. I love cuddles, being pet, and hanging out on your lap for long periods of time. I'm [...]

The Shabby Tabby is MOVING (a few paws down the road)

A brand new Shabby Tabby Cat Cafe

Hi!!!!  SO......The Shabby Tabby Cat Cafe is reaching the end of our 3 year building lease, and after LOTS of thought we have decided to move......about 2 blocks away.  

over 2 and a half years in the cat cafe business we have learned a TON.  We have figured out what works for you humans, our cats, and our staff - and now it's time for a fresh start

Moving is never fun, and building a business is never cheap. We hope this campaign will help us as well as keep you involved in the design and moving process. We are excited to be able to bring you along with us on this fun but scary journey! It will overall be fun and worth every struggle we face.
