Rescue Cats Find A Safe And Low Stress foster Home With Us

As cat lovers, we are committed to the well-being of cats.  Denver Cat Company acquires its cats from partnering rescues. We assist the rescues in their efforts to adopt out cats by getting them into a space where they are likely to meet their potential adoptive parents. Until they are adopted, we foster the cats using proceeds from café sales.

We understand the stress cats feel if forced to interact with humans on humans' terms.  It's well-known to all cat lovers that cats are capricious creatures who dictate the terms of their companionship, and this is exactly why many of us love cats.  So as to keep café cats' stress to a minimum, our partner rescues helps us select suitable cats and we patiently integrate them into the cafe environment. No cat is forced to stay in the café if he or she is too stressed by the environment.  We reserve an area at the back of the cafe for cats to retreat to if they need a break from the attention. We also expect proper cattiquette from café patrons (no harassing and excessive petting of the cats).

Adoption

We believe and understand that the least stressful environment for cats is a stable home with loving human parents.  We promote adoptions by bringing rescue cats into an interactive environment and increasing the probability that cats will find a permanent home with a café patron. This has proven to be a quick way of finding homes for cats, as we have had over 100 adoptions since opening.

Paw Project

Denver Cat Company opposes declawing of cats. The cafe's owner is involved with the Paw Project in the capacity of Co-Director for the State of Colorado, and is currently collaborating with the Sturm College of Law (her alma mater) to bring an end to the practice of declawing in Colorado. You can find out more about the harms of this cruel practice here.
