Looking for cat cafes in Mississippi?
Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, there were no cat cafes in Mississippi – at least not in the modern sense.
That means it might be a good idea to start a cat cafe in Mississippi, so if you’ve ever had a dream of running one, why not consider it?
With no cat cafes to recommend, I thought I’d list a few cat rescues instead as the next best thing:

How Cat Cafes Help At-Risk Cats
There is often the misconception that cat cafes are created for the entertainment of customers. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Every cat cafe I’ve reviewed found all of their cats at local rescues and used the cat cafe as an adoption center more than a profit-making business.
In addition to giving homeless cats a new home and an interactive lounge, cat cafes typically also put all of their cats up for adoption.
So, it’s more accurate to look at a cat cafe as a pet adoption business with the cafe aspect to get more customers through the door than it is a cafe with cats (if that makes sense).
If you want to do your part for homeless cats in your state, visiting a cat cafe is the best thing you can do.
You don’t have to be able to adopt one of their cats, any money you spend is going to go towards a good cause.
Plus, you get to hang out with cats, have good coffee and food, and enjoy a unique experience – it’s a win-win.
Where Do Cats Come From in Cat Cafes?
More often than not, the cats in cat cafes come from local rescues and shelters.
Cat cafes typically partner up with shelters to effectively raise awareness for at-risk cats by giving them a place to live where they’ll get lots of attention and hopefully be adopted.
If you check the website for a cat cafe, they should provide all the details regarding where their cats are coming from as well as how you can adopt one.
This is why cat cafes are ethical businesses. The cats are not there purely for the amusement of customers, the owners are trying to give them a better life.
At the very least, the cats get out of the shelter and into a better environment – and you as a customer get a fun experience meeting cats.
