What we're about

Calling all cat lovers! Do you find cats irresistible? Do you own one, want to own one, or just want to be around one? Do you want to share your love of cats with other like-minded people in San Jose? Join us! We'll share stories, photos and behavior tips of these precious animals. Special events might include a workshop to make catnip toys, or a talk by a cat behaviorist.

Most events will take place at The Dancing Cat (, San Jose's only cat adoption lounge. Visitors are invited to meet and mingle with adorable adoptable cats in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Sweet snacks and soft drinks for sale, wi-fi and catnip are on the house!

The Dancing Cat is an initiative of Silicon Valley Pet Project (, a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of at-risk cats and dogs from the San Jose municipal animal shelter.

If you'd like to simply hang out with adorable adoptable cats, you're welcome to come during our regular public hours from Wednesday though Sunday from noon to around 6pm. We ask for a donation of $10 to come in, but this is waived in cases of hardship. We want everyone to enjoy being with our cats.
