Columbia cafe serves up coffee, cat cuddles

Papa’s Cat Café offers customers the chance to play with cats. Adoption is an option, as well.

The cafe’s name originates from the nickname of co-owner Ryan Kennedy’s favorite author, Ernest Hemingway. Kennedy and his wife, MacKenzie Kennedy, have a mutual love for cats and wanted to share their passion with others in the mid-Missouri community.


The pitch:


The company: Papa’s Cat Café is a coffee shop that offers customers the chance to play with –– and adopt, if they’d like –– cats.

Key people: Owners Ryan Kennedy and MacKenzie Kennedy
