Our Story / Staff Openings
Once you have scheduled your Purrfect time to visit the cafe, prepare yourself for thoughts of cuddles and interaction and let us know when you arrive if you are interested in adoption so one of our matchmakers can give you special attention and tell you more about our residents and adoption processes. Our cat room is safely separated from the lounge area but there are uniquely designed areas around the cafe where you can view the animals so arrive early and order a drink and feel free to stay and enjoy our metropolitan loft or outside lounging area.

Meet the Purrfect Team
Our team is bonded not only through our love of cats but also in a mission to change the way homeless animals are adopted in America. Is there any better job than bringing a new creative concept to our home town, playing with cats all day, and making a difference to the homeless animal population?
Robert (Bobby) Mason and his wife, Lindsey, are the proud parents of seven fur babies (Toodles, Tsu’tey, Mystra, Bynx, Nimue, Tymora, and Eilistraee). He is a current foster with the Kentucky Humane Society (and ended up with two of his kids that way) and continues to be blown away that his job is to find homes for rescue cats. He came from working retail at Barnes and Noble for 14 years. In that time, he learned the many ways that the work done behind the scenes benefits the customer. He’s hopeful that his attention to detail prevents any CAT-astrophes and his ability to create an inviting atmosphere benefits the Purrfect Day Café and all the cats we hope to help!
