Place is average. Nothing much if you aren't Cat lover. It will take around 30 - 60 minutes to cover the whole area.

Don't be surprised if you can't find a real cat there. Being there few times over the years and strongly think that it needs a facelift

If you need an overload of cats go to this place, but most probably 15 minutes later you have seen enough.
