The Hyla’s Heart to Home Cat Lounge reimagines the shelter experience by providing a warm and friendly home-like environment where cats are free to roam about and to interact with would-be parents. We love cats, and created a safe, fun, and unique atmosphere for them to hang out.

We believe every adoptable cat needs a forever home, and we support the dedicated organizations making that happen. All cats who visit Hyla’s Cat Lounge have been rescued and fostered by South Bay Cats, and are available for adoption (and cuddles!)

Cat Lounge reservations are now available 7 days a week! Mondays-Fridays 12:00 Noon – 6:00 PM,  and Saturdays and Sundays, 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM on the hour. Appointments are for 50 minute sessions. Ten minutes are needed to sanitize the lounge before the next party’s arrival.  The last appointment starts at 5:00 PM.  No same-day appointments made be made for Monday – Friday.

One party is allowed per time slot, with a maximum of four persons allowed in the party. Children 7 years and older are allowed, and must be accompanied by at least one adult;  no more than two children per adult.

Walk-in visits are also available from 6-9 pm as part of San Pedro’s First Thursday Art Walk monthly happening!

Please use the litter box before coming! We do not provide public restrooms.
