Mews Cat- Lanai Cat Sanctuary



  •   My family had the most wonderful time visiting the Lana'i Cat Sanctuary last week  everyone was friendly and helpful, and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting with all of the furry friends!

  •   If you find yourself in Maui, or Lanai, absolutely visit the cat sanctuary! Bring a packed lunch and spend the day with these beautiful cats. The cat sanctuary made my trip to Hawaii. Thank you for your incredible work and for protecting the cats of Lanai.

  •   This was our reason for coming to Lanai and it was for sure a highlight of the trip.  About the location, it is quite a ways from the harbor so you will need to take a shuttle or rent a vehicle.  We took Rabacca's Shuttle service (and I wrote about that as well on their Yelp page).

    Get checked in and it is off to feline central.  Grounds are well kept, staff is friendly and welcoming, and you are given a small bag of kitty treats.  

    Admission is FREE FREE FREE, which is spectacular considering how everything seems to cost money (and is pricey).  Do consider donating, it's how they stay afloat and running.  

    There is cute merchandise available.  We picked up a hat and some t-shirts.  They even have a section of shirts that are no longer being printed and are just $10 each.   Highly recommend this trip, particularly if you are a lover of the kitties.

  •   One of the highlights of my vacation. This is a cat lady's dream! Acres of well cared for cats to feed, pet and play with. They take such good care of the cats so please donate if you can. We had two nights on Lāna'i and visited the sanctuary twice. Don't forget to check out the old cats area and the newer area in the back to make sure all the cats get some love!

  •   This place is my absolute favorite place in the world. I have been fortunate enough to go twice. It is a little slice of heaven. I can not talk enough about what a wonderful job these people do. They save these cats and give them a wonderful place to live for the rest of their lives. The sanctuary is clean and the cats are happy. This is my favorite charity and what these people are doing is SO important. This is a must see stop...Please support this wonderful cause. D not forget to bring treats! The cats will LOVE you! Thank you Lanai Cat Sanctuary for everything you do!!
