Love Kitties? Tipsy Tabby Cat Cafe Now Open in Newmarket, New Hampshire
You might be wondering, "What is a cat cafe?". That's what I asked when I stumbled across The Tipsy Tabby Facebook page. Let me explain.
A cat cafe is a place to spend time in the comfort of kitties. It's not only a cafe for cat lovers, but a place to meet, eat, and drink with fellow cat people. Isn't' that what a dog park is, too? It sure is, except cats are often indoor pets, so the idea of a cat cafe is really about the personalities of cats and people.
The Tipsy Tabby website tells us more about how this Newmarket idea came to life. As the only cat cafe in New Hampshire, this place has become a unique part of the Granite State. Here's the story:
A dream in the making, The Tipsy Tabby will combine our favorite things; hot chocolate, tea and cats! After living her best life working at a veterinary dentistry practice in Metro Atlanta, our founder Kaitlyn has returned home so she can pursue her dream of opening a cat café.
All of the cats at The Tipsy Tabby are up for adoption from Cat Tales Rescue, a non-profit in Seabrook, New Hampshire. Patrons can enjoy the cats snuggling up to them or looking for a treat of love in the cat lounge. The cat lounge, where the cats live and play, is limited to 10 people at a time, is accessible by reservation at thetipsytabby.com, and costs $14 for 50 minutes.
The other part of the cafe is for people to drop in for a beverage or snack, like a regular coffee shop. So pop in for a tipsy or teetotaling drink or bite to eat.
The Tipsy Tabby offers hot chocolate of all kinds, a cacophony of teas, coffee, and Boba teas with a tapioca base, plus local baked goods, sandwiches, and soups.
The Tipsy Tabby also features liquors like Frangelico, St. Elder, Bailey's, Peppermint and Raspberry Liqueurs, and Boston Harbor Maple Cream, thus the "tipsy" part of the name. There are only two other cat café in New England: The Kitty Cat Café in Peabody, Massachusetts, and the Mew Haven Cat Café in New Haven, Connecticut.
Good luck, Tipsy Tabby. We're meowing for you.
