The Westgate Ark Cat Cafe

Westgate Ark now has it's own cat cafe in Newcastle Upon Tyne. We are at 299, Two Ball Lonnen, Fenham, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 9RX. We are next door to our Support Shop and in between Boots and Greggs.


We are open for coffees, teas, and other hot or cold drinks, every day between 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. We are a not for profit social enterprise and any profits are ploughed back into cat rescue work at our cat homing centre in Newcastle.


Our phone number is (0191) 4470890


We are asking £3 per adult, and £1.50 per child for a one hour visit. All profits go towards improving and expanding our Cat Homing Centre here in the West End of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Every visitor will be offered a free hot drink.

We have some nice items for sale, including a small library of cat themed books and other cat items.We do not serve food but include biscuits with the entry price.


Meet our cats

Tabitha - is a very sweet, petite cat. When she was about a year old she underwent surgery for a luxating patella (dislocated kneecap), but she has now fully recovered.

Ollie - is a favourite with a lot of our customers as he often likes to sit on their shoulders! He is the chief mischief maker, loves attention and will often pose for his photo being taken!

Sophia and Max - are mother and son. Sophia is the most independant cat here, preferring not to snuggle up with the others! It is sometimes difficult to tell them apart unless they are together!

Grace - is an all grey (known as blue) cat. She is very charming and likes to be everybody's friend.

Toby - is a very friendly cat. He has the longest tail, with a tiny white tip at the end of it. He likes to snuggle up with the other cats.

Theo & Millie - are brother and sister. Theo is outgoing, but Millie can be more reserved - this doesn't stop her from being one of the favourites of our younger clientele.
