Like all great things, Denver Cat Company came about because of one person's passionate obsession.

Sana, the cafe's founder, is a Pakistani-American immigrant who trained as a lawyer for her first career, but changed course to become a professional cat lady. (Nobody had ever told her this was a possible career path or she may have saved $100,000 by skipping law school.)

Denver Cat Company is an old-fashioned small business, started by Sana using her personal savings and with the help of a few friends and Kickstarter contributors. Since it opened its doors in December 2014, it has grown to have a loyal local following.

Denver Cat Company is 100% female/immigrant owned, and 100% female-operated.
