About Us

Located in downtown Historic St. Charles, we are a cozy cat lounge and adoption center. We founded Cat Zen eager and excited for the opportunity to connect cats with people.  Our free roaming cat lounge serves as a temporary sanctuary for cats waiting to find their forever home while providing a bright and joyful space for our customers.


We typically foster 12-20 cats and kittens in our cat lounge at a time. Guests can enjoy 30 minute, 60 minute, and private sessions in our cat lounge. We offer special events each month such as Yoga with Cats, Arts and Cats,  and Painting with Cats. All events are posted on our reservation page.

You do not have to be interested in adopting a cat to visit our cat lounge. You can simply visit with our adoptable kitties and enjoy all the love our feline friends have to offer with no commitments or strings attached. Your visit helps to socialize and prepare our cats for their new home.


Looking for other ways to support? You can shop merchandise in our Cat-ique located in our lobby and/0r purchase a beverage and snack. All proceeds benefit our rescue cats.


Our founder/owner, a lifelong animal advocate and social worker by profession, felt an inner calling to start a business that would help find homes for homeless cats in the community. After researching and visiting several cat cafe's, the fire was lit, and the idea to start a cat cafe became a reality with the support of family and the community. Cat Zen hopes to tackle feline homelessness by finding forever home's for all cats placed in our cat at a time.
