NoCo’s first-ever Cat Café is set to open in Loveland this spring

The speculation, however, has since turned into reality.

According to the Loveland Reporter-Herald, The NoCo Cat Cafe, which has hosted several pop-up adoption events in northern Colorado, will open a permanent location for its creative and innovative concept in Loveland this spring.

It is expected to be the first cat cafe in the region.

About Noco Cat Cafe & Rescue

The mission behind this unique animal rescue is to provide a safe environment for cats and the community to socialize in a fun and relaxing environment.

NoCo Cat Cafe held its first pop-up in October 2021 in downtown Loveland, which resulted in an attendance of nearly 200 people and led to the adoption of several cats – all of whom attended the pop-up cafe.

At the pop-up cafe, adorable adoptable cats and kittens are brought in by the NoCo Cat Cafe’s nonprofit cat rescue partner, Colorado Kitty Coalition, based in Fort Collins.

In a public post on the Rescue Cat’s Facebook page over the weekend, NoCo Cat Cafe founders Kimberly Tejchma-Sanford and her husband, Christopher, shared that this weekend’s Cat Cafe pop-up next end would be the last – but that’s only to make room for something even better.

Tejchma-Sanford and her husband told the Loveland Reporter-Herald they plan to open their permanent location in the coming months.

“We are hoping for April or May.”

The new cat cafe will work like the pop-up; people will still be able to visit the cafe and enjoy hot drinks, while enjoying the company of cats and kittens looking for their forever home.

“We have always loved cats and have been passionate about helping cats and kittens.”Tejchma-Sanford told the Reporter-Herald.

New location of the NoCo Cat Cafe

The Loveland Reporter-Herald says Tejchma-Sanford and her husband will open a permanent location in downtown Loveland, located at 121 E. Fifth St, next to the Top Hat Saloon.

The Top Hat would move, and according to Tejchma-Sanford, the owner of both spaces will complete work on the wall between 121 and 123 E. Fifth St. before the cat cafe can officially take possession of the space.

In the meantime, plans are currently in place for a mural of Longs Peak on the cat cafe side of this shared wall, as well as tunnels, bridges and other structures for cats to climb, walk around and play on. .

The cafe will sell coffee and tea and packaged goods, all of which will be supplied through partnerships with other local businesses; there will be no kitchen on site.
