Fun Feline Finds: Cats, Coffee & Country Music

Country music fanatic that I am, it's no secret that visiting Nashville one day is at the top of my bucket list. For a few years now I've been following their cat cafe, the Mewsic Kitty Cafe, on social media, with hopes of making that one of my first stops whenever I got there. They feature adoptable cats with creative country music-themed names, paintings on the wall of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson & Dolly Parton holding cats and cats dressed to look like them, not to mention the ever-present Conway & Loretta record sitting on the window. 

Needless to say, I was heartbroken to learn last month that they will be closing the cafe for the final time on Wednesday, September 30, COVID putting the final nail in their coffin. 

I immediately went to their online store to pick up a few souvenirs, just little trinkets like a button and guitar pick with their logo on it. But I gasped out loud when I saw this coffee mug. Isn't it absolutely purrfect for me???


Cats, coffee, and country music...3 of my favorite things! (Of course Conway would be my 4th "C".) I couldn't buy it fast enough, but I'm not likely to ever put a beverage in it. It's a permanent part of my Conway/classic country music collection.

I'll always regret never having had the chance to visit Mewsic Kitty Cafe, but I'll always cherish these mementos of such a special place.

Oh, to have visited that wonderful inspiring place! We, too love C and W and mama is a Texan so there you have it. Willy and the voice of silk...George Jones, the king.
Well, the race is on to lick this virus, and we’d love to say Bye, bye, Covid! If we could only win this war (one of mama’s favorites ‘If I could only win your love’)...this could go on all day. And you must know the Monday Musik blog, but she does mostly rock and roll and ballads but every now and then there is C and W.

The Dad here was never at that place and he's sorry he missed it. He has been to Nashville several times and he really enjoyed the musical adventures!

It's so sad that the Mewsic Kitty Cafe had to close. They offered wonderful services, both for humans and kitties. But I am glad you were able to get such fitting pieces of memorabilia from the cafe!
