New Hampshire Cat Cafe

No one  is surprised   that New Hampshire wasn’t the first state to have a cat cafe.   With a population of under 1.4 million people,   the whole state is  smaller than many  large cities that have cat cafes. But what New Hampshire lacks in size, they make up for in catitude and yes, their very own cat cafe, The Tipsy Tabby Cat Cafe.

First New Hampshire Cat Cafe Now Open

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 fifth cat cafe.

Catitude: New Hampshire Loves Cats

Live Free or Die! Of course  New Hampshire is full of cat people with a motto like this!


No question about it: New Hampshire has catitude. Only cat lovers could have a state motto like, “Live Free or Die.” Pure catitude! And it takes just a few facts about New Hampshire and its cats to purr-suade us that the state   will be tops  for cat cafes.   Stats  from the American Veterinary  Medical Association   (AVMA)   show  New Hampshirites to  be true cat people:

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.
