About

 What is a cat cafe anyway? 

Cat cafes, originating in Taiwan, are becoming incredibly popular throughout the United States. A cat cafe is exactly what it sounds like: a coffee shop where you can interact with and enjoy the company of cats!

cat ca·fe    

noun  

a cafe or similar establishment where people pay to interact with cats housed on the premises.

The Campaign is pretty straight forward. Raise money to lease an amazing space in the perfect location in King of Prussia

What We Need & What You Get

  • The numbers are still rough, but I estimate about $50,000 needed to open my doors. That includes:                              
    • Leasing a building in the perfect location
    • Building the space out to accommodate a cafe as well as cats, subject to zoning laws.
    • Food / drink (coffee, milkshakes, sweet treats)
    • Cups and mugs
    • Restaurant equipment. 
    • Cat supplies (food, litter, toys, beds, houses, etc.)
    • Promo swag! Shirts, mugs, etc

How we'll use the funds

Rewards!

Thank you card, mug, car magnet, water bottle. Shirts and hoodies being designed. 

Progress and Timeline

We work hard every day to make sure this dream becomes a reality. We have a completed business plan, are partnered with Providence Animal Center and are seeking out potential locations for our cafe! 

Meow House plans to open in Late Fall 2019. We have lots of hard work to do between now and then, and you can always check our social media for updates.

Who are we?

Meow House Cat Cafe was created and incorportaed in April 2018 by Alicia Miller. 

I have always been an animal lover but growing up, animals were (absolutely!) NOT allowed in the house. When I moved out at 19 years old, one of the first things I did was adopt a beautiful little Russian Blue kitten named Coco Chanel. We quickly became best friends and we have been together my entire adult life. 

Fast forward a few years and then came my now husband and his cat, a fiesty tortie named Coco. Having cats named Coco Chanel and Coco wasnt going to work, so Coco Chanel became Chaneli. 

Vince was feeling outnumbered by the girls in the house so then came Rocky! Rocky was a 6 w week old little nugget when we rescued him from South Philly. At 5 years old , Rocky was diagnosed with cardiomyopothy, a disease of the heart muscle. Thanks to amazing vets, Rocky is now 10.5 and going great. 

And of course I cant leave out the doggo. Cami, but we call her Beast. Cam is a 6-7 year old staffordshire, frenchie, who knows what dog. She has an underbite, her tongue sticks out and I love everything about her. She was found for me in West Virginia by the amazing Finding Shelter Animal Rescue. 

I love my cats and can't imagine my life without them. Every day, without fail, they make me laugh, they make me smile, and they just make me a happier person. I want everyone to feel the joy I feel when Chaneli squeaks when she sees me, when Rocky flops onto his side wanting belly rubs, and when Coco kisses my cheek. 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges? Well, this is my first business. I don't really know much about business. I do know that I am committed and passionate about making this a reality. I trust the process and I am confident that my passion will rub off on to others.
