About

Cat Cafés originated in Asia in the late 1990s, in areas where most rented living spaces didn't accommodate pets. They allowed customers to adopt or just spend quality cuddle time with cats. This trend has quickly spread all over the world, and Cheshire Books & Cat Café will be one of the first in Western North Carolina.

Think of it as part affordable pet therapy, part opportunity to find your perfect cat in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Cheshire Books & Cat Café is a 100% woman-owned and operated business located in the Asheville, NC area. I worked in book/café retail for over 15 years, and have been a happy cat owner for more than forty. Focusing on what I love has led me to create a business where I can hang with three of my favorite things daily.

Here we can all surround ourselves with cat cuddles, coffee, and books in a cozy and inclusive space. Stop by and enjoy!
