With its spacious, comfortable lounge area, Cateriam is a pleasant place to relax over tea and scones or a glass of wine. While there are only a few perches, the room is well furnished with cardboard boxes, baskets, and large nabe pots for the resident cats to curl up in. Most seating is on the floor (on cushions), with a large-size sofa in one corner.
When you enter you'll be asked how long you expect to stay - most visits are thirty or sixty minutes, although you can opt for a ten-minute introductory visit if you want to check the place out quickly. Although the space is relatively large there are only eleven resident cats - most of them sleeping at any given time - so cat interactions can be a bit limited during busy times such as weekends.
