Manchester’s Cat Alley
A very public expression of the state’s great love of kitty kats is found in the city of Manchester’s Cat Alley. According to local lore, the alley first gained its moniker many decades ago when a man witnessed a tremendous cat fight. The actual cat art in Cat Alley first appeared over a decade ago and gradually filled the walls. If you’re a fan of street art (and cats) – check out the Instagram account of Ryan Baxter.

First New Hampshire Cat Cafe Now Open
Just a half hour from Cat Alley, the first New Hampshire cat cafe is now open! The Tipsy Tabby Cat Cafe opened in Newmarket in February, 2023. The Tipsy Tabby has the distinction of being the only New Hampshire cat cafe and New England’s second cafe (Connecticut’s Mew Haven Cat Cafe is closest cafe.)
