Frequently Asked Questions
Does This Cost Money? How Does it Work?
There is a four dollar minimum spend to enter the Toe Beans Cat room. Simply purchase anything at the front counter until your total is four dollars or over, sign a waiver and you're free to enter the cat room. We currently are not accepting reservations.
But Why Are You Charging Money? Taking care of cats costs money! And Toe Beans is responsible for providing the amazing space for them in addition to feeding them. The minimum spend helps us cover our costs and keep our space open. Toe Beans does not receive outside or government funding, or discounts on big ticket items like rent or utilities. All the money we use comes from Cafe purchases.
I Can Eat Around Cats?! How is That Clean?!
Toe Beans has collaborated with the HKPR Health Unit and the Ontario SPCA to make sure all of Toe Beans maintains the highest standards of cleanliness for your safety and the safety of our cat residents. All food preparation areas will be separate from the cat room and cats will never be near the food preparation areas.
Can I Bring My Cat?
No. We have plenty of cats at the cafe for you to interact with! All of our cats have been pre-screened for diseases and temperament. And if your cats are anything like ours, they HATE travel and new spaces.
How Long Can I Stay?
As long as you like! However we ask that if it's busy and you notice people waiting, you limit your visit to the cat room to forty-five minutes so everyone can enjoy their time at Toe Beans.
I Don't Want My Cat, Can I Surrender it to You?
No. We are not equipped to do any animal intake. Please take your cat to your closest animal shelter.
Do You Take Donations?
Yes! Currently our only funding comes from the sales from the cafe, so we welcome donations of items for the cafe and of the monetary variety. Listed below are items we are in most need of; anything in good condition we cannot use will be donated to the Northumberland Humane Society.
