Welcome to Frisky Business Palm Springs Cat Cafe!
The first and only cat cafe in the Coachella Valley.
Where cats, community & kindness come together.
Frisky Business Palm Springs Cat Café offers delicious freshly roasted coffee, matcha, teas, fresh baked goods, sandwiches, and more in a fun, unique, relaxed environment for both cats and people alike.
Allergic to cats? That's okay; we've got you covered! We are also a regular coffee shop - our kitty cats are in a separate enclosed mid-century modern lounge, so you can enjoy our delicious beverages and snacks without snuggling up to our feline friends!
WHERE OUR CATS COME FROM....
We believe every adoptable cat should have a forever home, and we are partnered with The Palm Springs Animal Shelter to find loving homes for each cat that resides at Frisky Business.
We facilitate the adoption of happy, healthy cats to cat lovers who wish to adopt them. Customers will have the opportunity to play and spend time with the adoptable cats after paying the hourly entrance fee to ascertain which cat they feel the most attached to. (Note: Cat adoption is not required when visiting Frisky Business!)
By fostering the cats we receive from The Palm Springs Animal Shelter at Frisky Business, we give them greater visibility of being seen and, thus, a greater chance of being adopted.

SONNY VON CLEVELAND
MINDSET COACH . MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER .
MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE.
My name is Claire Rogers, and I have had a long and varied career - A former Model. Former Director at an American Fortune 500 company.Mindset Coach. Motivational Speaker, Mental Health Advocate, and Business Owner (www.itopiacoaching.com) are just a few of the careers that I have had.
Although I've had an extensive career, the one thing I have always felt missing is incorporating my love of animals into a job I love. I love all animals and, in particular, cats. I am an avid traveler, having traveled extensively throughout 70 countries, several of which I have lived in. During my travels, I have fed and helped rescue cats in Turkey, Greece, Japan, Bermuda, Jordan, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia, and many more! Furthermore, for over 20 years, I have been a patron of the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
I moved to Palm Springs in June of 2021, having lived in London, England, for the past twenty-one years, and decided to renew my focus on incorporating my love of animals into a job I love.
For the next 16 months, my other half and I worked diligently and tirelessly to create and open Frisky Business Palm Springs Cat Cafe, the first and only cat cafe in the Coachella Valley.
We look forward to welcoming you to Frisky Business - where cats, community, and kindness come together.
