Small Town Cat Cafes, Very Small
Think your little town is too small for a cat cafe? Think again. Nearly a third of all the cat cafes that opened in 2019 debuted small towns with populations under thirty thousand people. Of these small town cafes, only three are part of much larger metropolitan areas (Patriot Pawsabilities, Meows Corner, and Caffeinated Cat).
In fact, most of these small town cat cafes are in very small towns indeed. Sixteen percent of all the cafes opened in 2019 are in towns of less than ten thousand people. The new Calico Cat Cafe & Barkery is in small and remote Zillah Washington with only three thousand residents.
The smallest town, small town cat cafe of them all is K.A.T. Cafe in New Market, Maryland. With only seven hundred residents, the lucky people of little New Market have a big time cat cafe right on Main Street. Let’s just go ahead and call New Market the best small town for cat lovers in America!
The purrfect small town cat cafe: K.A.T. Cafe in New Market, Maryland
We know what you’re thinking. Shoot, if little New Market can have their very own cat cafe, my town can too. And your instincts are correct. It is not the size of the city that predicts success, but the heart of the community for animals.
