a purr is an auditory expression of contentment or pleasure made by a cat. nirvana is defined as the state of perfect happiness. purrvana is the state of perfect happiness brought on by surrounding oneself with cats.

If you've lived in Savannah a while, you might remember how 1402 Barnard St. used to look. Needless to say, its appearance has changed a bit since we bought it in 2012. This early-20th century space is no longer ranked on the city's 100 Worst Buildings, so that's some progress! After five years of TLC (respecting the historic integrity, of course), obtaining permits, and crafting the perfect home for foster cats, we're finally ready to welcome you to Purrvana.

Savannah is a special city, and it deserves a special spot for locals and visitors alike. Where else can you sit in a cozy room while 10+ cats roam around you? And you're doing some good by coming to Purrvana: our cats are up for adoption through Palmetto Animal League. Even if you don't adopt a cat, you're helping to provide them with the coolest foster home ever and freeing up space at PAL so that they can save even more kitties.

Come on over to one of the coolest neighborhoods in the city and sit back with your newest furry friends. The cats can't wait to see you.
