welcome to

Neko Ngeru Cat Cafe

Our retail shop is now open at 215 High Street,
only one block from Queensgate Mall!

Construction has been going ahead for the last two months but it looks like it will be at least another one before we can finally open. Most of the work has been done on a reasonable schedule but the fire and security company really dropped the ball on our project. The person in charge of it left the job and didn’t really bother to let anyone else in the company know what had already been done and what was still needed. Now they are trying to catch up, but won’t be able to do their work until the 18th of September. We are upset, of course, and disappointed to bring you this news. We just wanted to let you know that we are still working hard to bring you the best cat café we possibly can. Thanks for your patience and support! Please come see us at our shop behind Café Soleil.

Shop Opening Hours
Wednesday to Sunday
11am to 2pm

Our Mission

Our moto is ‘Love Cats. Love People.’ This means we have a commitment to serve the needs of the cats in our care and the people who love them, our customers. Our cat café is designed to provide a safe, relaxing space for both cats and humans giving them the chance to interact in positive ways. Our cats get a chance to be socialised and find their adoptive home. Our customers get a chance to enjoy ‘cat relaxation therapy’ whether they are looking for a new cat to adopt or not.







Even if you are not in Wellington area, you can buy our unique merchandise here! 

We have changed our shipping method/charge. Instead of free shipping, we charge $5 for regular shipping but we reduced the price for each item. So if you buy multiple items, this would be cheaper for you. If you order more than $100, it will be free shipping except for a few bulky or heavy items. The rural shipping is $10.


You can also shop for our unique merchandise at our table at the Welly Collective in Courtenay Place, Wellington!


How it works


A cat is rescued from the public or a rescue organisation, often coming from a traumatic or difficult situation. We do vet checks, vaccinations and de-sexing if needed.


Our fosterers look after the cat/kitten and teach them how to interact with humans as we check to make sure it has no communicable diseases or other serious issues.

At the cafe

Once the cat/kitten is ready, he/she will come to the cafe and stay with us for a minimum of four weeks, this is the time for them to pick a new family.


After a successful trial time of two weeks with the new family, the adoption is official and the cat graduates from Neko Ngeru.

While we’re relocating…

If you are looking to adopt a cat or kitten, here are a few of the rescue organisations you can reach to.


Our retail shop is open at 215 High Street, Lower Hutt.
