My Visit to Denver Cat Company

Last week, I visited Denver's first cat cafe, the Denver Cat Company, with a couple of friends.  It was a fantastic experience!

This adorable kitty is Goodyear.  I think he may have found a home since I visited because his profile is no longer up on Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue's website. 


Denver Cat Company features several adoptable cats from their partner shelter, Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue.  In its first month, the cafe was successful in finding 13 kitties forever homes!  I had the opportunity to meet several of the kitties who were at the cafe and really enjoyed spending time with them as I drank my coffee, savored a lemon bar, and chatted with friends.

Goodyear loves to sit in laps, and he really really wanted to try a bite of my lemon bar!


The cafe offers Solar Roast coffee, hot chocolate, and a selection of teas as well as a variety of baked goods they get from Martine's Muffins.  The cafe owner is very personable and cares about her customers and the kitties she's hosting.

Professor Nibbles, whom I featured in yesterday's Opt to Adopt post.


Another thing I really love about Denver Cat Company is that they are a combination free library and used bookstore.  In my opinion, nothing goes together like coffee, cats, and books!

In addition, Denver Cat Company regularly hosts art classes given by their partner, Teller Street Gallery.  I haven't taken a painting class yet, but how cool would it be to have the kitties help you with your painting?

This beautiful kitty enjoyed watching everything from her bed in the window.


I love the cozy atmosphere at the cafe and intend to visit regularly.  If you're in the Denver area, I definitely encourage you to stop in, grab a hot beverage, and spend some time with the wonderful kitties!

  5. You look so cute, Sierra! Did you give him a bite of your lemon bar? You didn't mention if you shared or not. I'm still wondering about the delicious lemon bar. - Crepes.

  8. Wow, you just made my human want to take a trip to Denver! Of course, that doesn't take much as she already loves the city. But the Denver Cat Company totally makes it irresistible!
