to Neko Ngeru
Wellington’s first cat cafe
Welcome to Wellington’s first Cat Cafe – Neko Ngeru! “Neko” means cat in Japanese and “Ngeru” also means cat in Maori so our name is translated as “Cat Cat” Cat Cafe!
Starting November 20, 2019, entry to the cat playroom will be for those age seven and up.
CATS IN THE CAFE
Nine different functions of Neko Ngeru
Just as a cat has ‘nine’ lives, Neko Ngeru has nine different functions on its site!
- Cat Room – you can play and/or chill out with our cats. Cats are great for relaxation!
- Adoption Centre – you can find the ‘purrfect’ cat for you and your family!
- School of ‘cat-craft and kittenry’ – our student cats learn how to behave here.
- Café – you can buy delicious coffee and food in the cat room, café and/or takeaway!
- Event room– we host a lot of fun events like cat yoga, movie night and cat toy making!
- Cat merchandise – many things cats need and cat lovers want from NZ and abroad.
- Function Centre – you can have a private function like a birthday party or team building!
- Local Artist Gallery & Exhibitions – we support local artists by giving space to exhibit.
- Educational Centre – learn how to improve the lives of all cats in NZ, cat health and safety, TNR, and how to better interact with your cat.
Meet Our Cats
Here you can find individual information about each of our adoptable cats. All of our cats come from rescue organisations around Wellington and have been de-sexed, vaccinated and de-wormed. We learn the stories of all the cats we care for and post them here for you to know some of their unique and exciting histories. As we interact with them on a day to day basis, we add more information so you can make an informed decision about whether you want to bring one into your family and home.
