San Antonio Cat Cafe

Eat, drink, and pet kitties.

It's a simple idea to get more cats and kittens socialized and adopted into loving homes and out of our overcrowded shelters. And you can help us do it.

Cat cafes aren't new. They started in Asia in the late 1990's, and since then, the concept has spread around the world. Here in the US, the focus is on adoption. People come to a cat cafe to interact with adoptable cats in a cage-free environment, and that allows the cats to show their true personalites. That means they have a better chance of being adopted into forever homes by people whose personalities match theirs.

With several cat cafes popping up around the country in the last few years, this isn't a trend. It's the beginning of a movement. We have studied the other cafes, both in America and around the world (including going in undercover as a regular customer), and we learned what works well and what doesn't. But, we don't want to copy these other cafes. We plan on taking the cat cafe concept to the next level. They are good, but we want to be the best. Introducing the San Antonio Cat Cafe.

Of course, people will come to see and play with the cats, but they can also enjoy a wide range of social events and classes being offered at different times throughout the week. You can talk with experts in the pet community and buy unique items you can't find anywhere else. If you wanted to learn about pet health and wellness or the TNR resources available locally, we're your place. You can even come try out new products, use our workspaces and WiFi, or curl up with a good book. It's totally up to you how to enjoy the cafe and kitties. We'll also welcome local artists and musicians to come display their work or play music, and help other small businesses succeed. The San Antonio Cat Cafe will be a phenomenal place people will visit again and again, because every time it will be different. 

Introverts and extroverts can both find joy there, and the cats (who come from local shelters and foster homes) will make sure of it. They, too, will be introverts and extroverts, which is why the San Antonio Cat Cafe is the perfect place for everyone. Come alone or come with your friends, your family, or a date. Come to study or come to relax. Come to a movie night or play games with friends and meet new people. And of course, be sure to eat, drink, and pet kitties. No matter what, a good time will be had by all.

The money we are raising through your generous donations go directly to getting the doors open, the business up and running, vetting the cats, and the "catification" of the cafe. What is catification?Specifically, it's cat trees, ramps, carpeted shelves, observation lofts, overhead catwalks, hidey-hole sleeping nests, and toys for the kitties.

We have a $20,000 goal, but honestly, the more money we raise, the better amenities we have for you and the cats, and more people will find their BFFs (best feline friends). We want all people and cats who come through our doors to be comfortable, happy, and stress-free.

At the San Antonio Cat Cafe, you can come kick back and relax in the company of adoptable cats... and so much more. Please donate to help us open our doors and people's hearts to these adorable adoptable cats. They deserve loving forever homes, and this is the way to make it happen.

Thank you for your support, share this campaign, and like/follow us on Facebook ( where we provide more detailed updates on the cafe's status. We can do it, San Antonio!
