Cat Show Cat Café is Montana’s first (and I think only) cat cafe. They’re dedicated to finding forever homes for kitties in need, and use the cafe as kind of adoption storefront.
I love the mission and goals of Cat Show Cat Café. They’re a not-for-profit, so you know all proceeds and donations are going towards improving the lives of cats in need.
They have a partnership with Heart of the Valley, and you will clearly see if you drop by that the Cat Show Cat Café has put a lot of time, thought, and resources into creating an awesome environment for their cats – and customers.
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?
Something that comes as a surprise to many is that the cats in cat cafes are not bought or found just for the amusement of customers – they’re cats in need of a home.
Almost every cat cafe I’ve reviewed had a partnership with a local cat rescue or shelter and was taking in at-risk cats.
This is the most ethical way I can think of to run a cat cafe. Whatever thoughts you might have had about cats being used to make money, put them to one side.
The mission of cat cafes is to raise awareness of homeless cats by effectively acting as an adoption center with the added benefit of being able to have some coffee and food.
Most of the donations go to helping improve the lives of the cats in the cafe, or to the rescues where there are many more cats in need.
If you’re a cat lover, whatever you can do to support the cat cafes in your state will go a long way to helping at-risk cats.
