Mochas and Meows is Branson, Missouri's first ever permanent cat cafe and we serve up smiles with delicious hot and cold beverages that can be enjoyed in the comfort of our lounge while spending time with free-roaming, adoptable cats or sitting around our beautiful driftwood tabletops in the cafe where you can watch the kitties play through our large viewing window without having to interact with the cats!
We're a fun, locally-owned establishment dedicated to serving delicious, high-quality coffee and espresso beverages, hot chocolate, chai, and smoothies and working round the clock to care for local homeless felines and keep them comfortable and safe until we can find them their forever homes.
The easiest way to understand a cat cafe is to think of a regular coffee shop...with cats. Technically speaking, that's all it is. No, really. It really is that simple!
A cat cafe offers a unique interactive experience for cat lovers where they can sit, sip, watch, and play with free-roaming, adoptable cats. The animals are housed on the premises and are cared for by cafe staff until they are adopted.
"But I don't want cat hair in my coffee!"
Believe me, neither do we!
That's why we house the cats in a completely separate area from the coffee shop!
Patrons have the option to purchase hot and cold drinks that you can take with you to-go, sit and enjoy them while relaxing in your choice of indoor or outdoor seating areas, or pay the cover charge and enjoy your *complementary or discounted beverages while hanging out with the cats in the comfort of our living-room-type lounge area.
Why adopt a cat from a cat cafe instead of an animal shelter?
Easy. Because a cat cafe IS an animal shelter. Well, basically.
All the resident felines of Mochas and Meows are provided to us by Shepherd of the Hills Humane Society and all adoptions are processed and overseen by their organization. The biggest difference lies in the housing; all cats living in the cafe enjoy the freedom of living cage-free and the socialization of being face-to-face with both people and other animals more often than those living inside shelter cages.
