We provide a safe and loving foster home for cats in need. The calm and enriching environment of our cafe allows our cats to thrive and grow, with some cats remaining as Finnegan’s residents, and others being found a permanent home when the time is right. Our cats come to us from our partner rescue Mel’s Rescue and from individuals who sadly need to surrender their pets.
Spending time at Finnegan’s Whiskers allows people from all walks of life to enjoy the unique benefits of pet therapy, which has been proven to ease anxiety, depression and loneliness, and serve as a distraction from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Our hope is that Finnegan’s Whiskers will bring together a community of cat lovers to share in their passion for cats.
We serve delicious homemade cakes, brownies, cold savoury pastries and hot and cold drinks from small, local, ethical suppliers; for you to enjoy in our calm and stylish setting. Our entry fee of £6.50 per person per hour goes towards maintaining the highest levels of welfare for the cats in our care, until they move on to life with their permanent family.
We look forward to welcoming you to Finnegan’s Whiskers in Sudbury, Suffolk’s only Cat Cafe.
