Winnipeg local business
As Winnipeg re-opens, we ask you support local and small businesses. Its not just because we are local or small, but because local and small businesses are your neighbors, and they are the people who give this city much of its character.
We still deliver from Ontario through BC of course. And do free delivery nearby. If you are local, stop in to our shop and our neighbors too.
COVID 19 Less Lockdown
Updated September 6, 2021
We are fully open. Come in, Curious & Ninja love visitors. You can bring your cat.
Masks Required. Mask for both staff and customers. We carry cat themed masks if you need to buy one.
Limit 4 people at a time.
Hoping total lockdown does not return. Follow the rules, help keep small businesses open.
You can also order online for pickup in store or curbside, or delivery of course. We are slowly putting all our offerings in the web store. If you want something you have seen us post on Instagram or Facebook, and its not in the store, ping us and we will get in on line – priority 1.
Web Store Local Pickup
Many people have wondered why its so hard to get the Local Pickup option. You had to unclick [x] Ship to another address, but who knew that?
Now that is unclicked by default. Once your home address is in, the option will appear in ‘Your order’, on desktop or mobile.
Your local pickup can be in store or curbside during our regular hours. If you want curbside, put that as a note in your order, then just phone when you get here.

Free delivery? If you are near the store, per the postal code list [list], we have free delivery for you.
Out of Stock?
Keeping up with inventory is more troublesome these days as shipping has slowed down and some suppliers are experience lock down related delays. We are getting inventory, just not as quickly as usual.
Craig Street Cats
Craig Street Cats requires your help. They do awesome work with feral cats. But how to help?
- Consider trading in a few days of buying Starbucks or Tims coffees for a donation.
- Did we say coffee? You can also buy some Craig Street Cats “THE CATS SASS” coffee (beans and ground) from us. We resell it at cost so all the money goes to Craig Street Cats.
- Foster a cat or kitten.
- Drop off some food, litter, or other supplies (see their site for the kind they most need). You can drop off with us, or with them. As we remain open, its easy either way.
- If you come in, drop some money in the Craig Street Cats donation can.
- You may find yourself with a lot of time off now. Craig Street Cats may have a few things you can do with that time.
Curious and Ninja thank you.
