WHO WE ARE
The goal of Gem City Catfé is to foster positive interactions between cats and people, in an expectation free environment. We are a cafe space serving high-end espresso, tea, and delicious bakery items with a separate cat lounge. Our cat lounge is home to 12 adoptable, feline friends from our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue partner, Gem City Kitties. We also have a separate art gallery with additional seating upstairs with plenty of large tables to spread out and for activities like coffee brewing courses, TNR Certification workshops, and available for private rentals.
WHY A CAT CAFE
In the united states:
- 3.4 million cats enter animal shelters each year
- 1.4 million cats are euthanized
- 70 million cats are strays or ferals
we can make a difference.
Cat cafés create win-win situations. People get a super cool place to hang out with cats. Cats are able to avoid being in a shelter, socialize, and find families.
