We had a great time visiting Pounce! It was clean, staff was friendly and the cats were adorable! It was nice to do something fun but also help the rescue. Highly recommend taking an hour out of your vacation or day to visit!!

Unfortunately we do not have a parking lot, but there is plenty of metered parking in front of the cafe on Meeting Street as well as a few city lots and garages within 2 blocks!
