Paws was established in late 2016, inspired by a visit to a cat cafe in Seattle by the owners. Nicole’s complete adoration of cats, and Mike’s passion for a great cup of coffee created the vision of what would soon become “Paws The Cat Cafe”.
Over the year, the partners began to map out and execute the required steps to make Paws their reality. The first step was making sure they could satisfy the requirements of Alberta Health Services. The second and subsequent steps included finding an appropriate location, including a landlord who was just as excited about the concept as Nicole & Mike were, and designing a floor plan that would be engaging to both cats and coffee lovers.
We value originality, creativity, empowerment, and a comfortable environment which allows us, and others, to explore and cultivate their passions. We aim to support local artists and other small businesses, just as the community has opened it’s arms and supported us, before our doors even opened to the public
