    This was a fun place to take our grandkids to see the animals. It was a hot day so most of the animals were in their caves and not active. The bear was cute when he played in the water. They also enjo...  more »

    It's a unique place for Spokane, because it's not everywhere you can see amazing cats. It's just depressing because the animals are kept is relatively small chain link cages. I'm not anti-zoo, I'm jus...  more »

    I was in Spokane with a friend and she wanted to go to this place. So we paid our entrance fee and went. I was appalled at the tiny enclosures. I was sorry I paid anything to help this place stay in b...  more »

    Disgusting and cruel. Will never go back. First off, the woman in the admittance booth was very unwelcoming and rude, and she smelled really foul. Next, many of the animals were pacing and rubbing their heads against their tiny enclosures, which are known signs of stress. They had little protection from the weather and their water was filthy. There were empty enclosures next to those that were inhabited that could have been opened to give the animals more space, because really, their cages are way too small for such large animals. Finally I noticed on the establishments "needed donations" list that about 75% was for frivolous things like, and I quote "flat screen tv" and "tablets". Whereas the things needed for the animals was "dog food for the bears". This "zoological park" would do better by the animals to send them to a real zoo that can afford to properly take care of their residents. I was honestly saddened and disturbed by the lack of care for a place that is supposed to be a refuge.

    First and foremost, some of these comments are what brought me to review this place. Its a rescue non profit, so the $10 I paid I would pay it over and over again, which I will. I come from San Diego where we have the World Famous Zoo and had a membership there and I would choose to go to Cat Tales, the employees were nice. The only thing I would complain about was in my head I thought there was more shade, but in that case we went under the awnings you so graciously provided! I cannot wait to continue to bring my daughter here and teach her the value of animals and how we need to take care of them. Thank you for having your doors open!

    Cat tales is cool where else are you going to see large cats safely around here? Keep in mind its a small private RESCUE. I hope they get funding to pay employees better and care for the animals long term. Think about donating something to keep them operating!! Tip your tour guide? :)

    Cat Tales is a nice place to go if you want to see various cats up close in person. It was the perfect way to end the afternoon after going to Green Bluff.

    It was a great place. The tour guide was not entertaining for the group of 1st graders. Hard to hear her. But overall good experience.
