Electric Company: Review of Denver Cat Company
One of the highlights of my cat cafe travels has been meeting amazing people from all over the world. Most of the time, these visits are fun, yet straightforward encounters with a fellow cat lovers, but sometimes, I get really lucky and make a friend for life.
Leila is one of those people. She has had an incredible life journey, including a law career, and that was before she even opened Denver Cat Company!
I was in town for a conference and had the fortune of visiting on a weekday morning before my afternoon flight. Located in the eclectic Berkeley neighborhood, this Mile High City cafe fits the vibe with a colorful and cheerful interior filled with books and art. Denver Cat Company is spacious, clean and inviting with plenty of seating to kick back and relax. The cover fee is $8 and there is no time constraint, delightfully rare in the world of cat cafes.
Arriving just as they opened, we hit the jackpot of fun as the cats were lively and Leila was able to converse at length.
She described how fortunate she has been to develop a loyal base of supporters that have helped her fulfill her mission to find forever homes for Denver’s rescue cats. She also has a tight-knit team that works at the cafe and the spirit of camaraderie between patrons and staffers is infectious!
Speaking of felines, there were so many sweet fur babies roaming the room that I had a hard time taking pictures since I just wanted to scoop them up for cuddles. My favorites included black beauties Jada and Marcie. Stunning Foxy, with her white face, bright amber eyes and black nose that stood out like an exclamation point. Then, there was cuddly Caldwell, who climbed into my lap and also my heart.
Over the course of two hours, we alternated between playing with the cats, visiting with Leila, taking photos and observing the traffic of regulars coming in for their daily coffee and kitty fix.
I couldn’t help being completely charmed by my visit to Denver Cat Company. Of course, Leila and the cats have much to do with that, but the cafe itself is so warm and welcoming that its easy to forget everything just be swept up in the happiness.
Do yourself a favor and prioritize a visit to Denver Cat Company. You might just find friends for life- feline and human.
