If you're in the Antelope Valley it's worth a visit to the Cat House, also known as the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound. It's a small place that you can easily do very quickly and your views of active cats will, of course, depend on what...More

I love this place. It's not huge, so you can walk around and see everything without getting exhausted. The cats are amazingly close so you get a really good view of them. There is a large variety of cats to look at. Best time to...More

Like cats and peacocks? Stop here for a pleasant visit in this small facility. Some cats are friendly, most lounge on shelves or hide inside their logs. (Typically the smaller cats won't be seen at all.) Peacocks provide lots of fun photo ops, but the...More

We took our two young (5 & 3 yo) grandchildren here. The kids loved it when the caretakers brought one of the Malayan Tigers out for a treat. It was fascinating being within 3-4 feet of a wild cat. This place is really a center...More

The cats are beautiful! I felt conflicted as many of the cats were in small cages. Several cats were pacing and howling. They didn't seem comfortable however we were told it was near feeding time. Very small facility and shouldn't take more than one hour...More

I love this place! You are close enough to big cats to hear them purr. Most were out where we could see them up close, but unfortunately the tigers were hiding and didn't come out while we were there. I can't wait to go back...More
