What we do:

We have adoptable kitties from our partner, Saving One Life, who would love to spend time with you whether you come in to catch up with a friend, get some work done, or just want to play with some furry felines. The cats have access to all areas of the Café and the space has been designed for maximum comfort of both feline and human guests.

We Offer:

  • Free WiFi
  • Interactive Classes with Kitties (Yoga, Coloring, Bingo) – Coming Soon
  • Pre-packaged Bakery and Beverage items available from both local and national brands


  • Participants must be a minimum of 6 years old for open sessions.
  • Only 3 children (ages 6-12) per adult to allow for proper supervision.
  • All participants under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

Adoption Information:

Did you fall in love with an adoptable kitty? Apply with our rescue partner, Saving One Life on their website. Applications are usually reviewed in 24-48 hours and a time to finalize the adoption will be arranged upon your approval.

Bookings are managed through our scheduling software, Acuity. Payments are processed through Square.

Why Should I Book a Session in Advance?

Reservations are highly recommended.  Drop-ins are welcome as availability allows.  However, it is best to book a reservation to assure your spot at the time you want to visit. Reservations can be made as little as 30 minutes in advance.

Application approval is at the sole discretion of Saving One Life. Kitty Pause Kitty Cafe is independent of Saving One Life’s site or communications.

About Marsha, owner and operator of Kitty Pause


I have had a long-term loving relationship with rescue cats. I adopted my first rescue cat, Hannibal, not long after I moved to Phoenix in 1990. Over the years since then, I have provided a loving home to a total of 11 cats. I now have a kitty family of seven cats including one special needs kitty, Harley.

In 2017 I was gifted with a visit to Kit Tea Cat Café in San Francisco. My friend Liz and I had a wonderful time drinking Japanese tea and playing with the cats. I came away thinking, “I could do that!”

In 2019, I retired from my fulltime position with A.T. Still University to develop and launch Kitty Pause Kitty Café.

Kitty Pause will be a hub for cat-centered activities designed to create a sense of joyfulness for both the visitors and the cats.

Kitty Pause will be one of Saving One Life’s adoption centers. You can get to know a potential new kitty member for your family in a great open setting. You also can engage in activities such as Yoga with Cats, Bingo with Cats and much more.

Come join the Kitty Pause family!


Greta’s Story

Greta picked me right before I was moving back to Arizona from Connecticut in 2015, Greta jumped up on the check-out desk at the vet’s office and rolled over on her back and started purring when I rubbed her belly.  “Does she typically do this?” I asked.  “No.”  Needless to say, I adopted Greta and took her home the next day. Three weeks later she made the 2,000-mile trip across the country with her new housemates, Sage and Tigger, and me.  She has ruled the family as the matriarch ever since.
