Happy Monday! What better way to start off the week than with photos from the Denver Cat Company? I haven’t had a chance to write about most things from when I was in Denver yet but I am more than prepared to share photos of cute rescue cats.
Before I went to Denver, I had zero idea that they had their own cat cafe. It wasn’t until I was trying to figure out how to pass the time (that sounds more negative than I mean for it to, but Denver is a small city!) and I googled “Denver Cat Cafe” and up popped the website for the Denver Cat Company. It was located on a really cute street called Tennyson Street in the Mountain View district of Denver.
On Google Maps, it looked like this was a good half-hour ride away, but when I plugged the address into Uber, it showed that it was a $7 Uber ride away from Molly Brown’s House. Yes, I was totally down. So after I’d visited the Denver Zoo and the Molly Brown House, I hopped in a cab and about 10 minutes later, my driver deposited me onto Tennyson Street.
I spoke to the young woman running the front desk who was so super friendly and informative. If you’re going, you should know that you don’t need a reservation and there’s an $8 entry fee. She informed me that all of the cats at the cafe are rescues and they work with an organization called Life is Better Rescue and they actually rescue animals from high-kill shelters in the south and bring them back to Denver.
The cats were all so friendly and playful. And adorable. I immediately fell in love with an all-black kitten, and also a brown tuxedo kitty (it is VERY rare to see a brown tuxedo cat).
the brown and white Tuxedo kitten!
They also had a ton of black cats, ’tis the season, it being October and all!
This was an epic way for me to begin to wind down my day. I’m so glad I decided to Google cat cafes in Denver and I’m so glad that a place like this exists! If you’re in Denver and looking for a way to relax one afternoon, consider having a cat-achino at the Denver Cat Company!
