What does a cat cafe look like?

A venue with 2 separate spaces! One side will be a cafe like setting, and the other a cat lounge.

If you'd rather not hang out in the cat lounge, you can still watch our adorable kitties from the cafe side through a glass window.

Join us in this heartwarming journey, as we continue the planning process to launch this new business in Topeka KS!



Cat Cafes Nationally

Cat cafes have gained nationwide popularity with over 150 of these establishments currently operating across the country. This trend started to take off around 2013 and has steadily grown in popularity ever since.

Prominent cat advocates like Jackson Galaxy frequently visit cat cafes, championing this innovative cultural concept that revolutionizes the perception and experience of cat adoption.

These cafes not only offer a unique social environment for shelter cats but also contribute significantly to increasing adoption matches within their respective communities.

About Us:

Welcome to the heart and soul of the Topeka Cat Cafe!

Meet April Liang and Toni Fowler, the co-founders of this feline haven, and we're thrilled to share our story with you. 

A Fateful Reunion

Our journey began with a twist of fate.

We knew each other from our high school days many years ago, but hadn't seen each other for a whole 12 years.

It was a chance encounter on a national cat cafe Facebook group that brought us back together.

Toni shared her dream of opening a cat cafe in this Facebook group, and that post appeared on April's feed less than an hour later.

April, a lifelong cat enthusiast, with the same dream, couldn't resist the opportunity to reconnect. We met up, and from that moment, everything just seemed to fall into place.

Meet April Liang: 


April's love for cats dates back to when she was a mere 2 years old. Throughout her life, she's been a cat magnet, caring for countless feline friends. At a young age, her passion shined through in her commitment to rescuing abandoned kittens and nurturing them back to health, bottle-feeding them until they could eat on their own. 

At home, April shares her life with two fantastic feline companions, Ajax and Berry. Ajax, a rescue from Helping Hands Humane Society, is especially fond of children and spreads joy wherever he goes. Berry can often be found perched in a quiet corner, quietly studying the world around her, seemingly plotting her next playful adventure from the sidelines.

With a degree in Cultural Anthropology, from Washburn University, April brings a unique perspective to our cat cafe venture.

Her extensive background in business management, technology, marketing, and customer experience, accumulated over nearly a decade as the co-owner of a real estate business, makes her an ideal founder for this venture.

In 2016, she founded Topeka's Generosity Network, a thriving local business organization where community members and business owners come together to share knowledge, offer support, and create a strong, interconnected community.

At Topeka's Generosity Network, April has interacted with hundreds of business owners and community members, gaining insights into the intricacies, specialized knowledge, and industry secrets of various local enterprises. Over the years, she's provided coaching and mentoring to others pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams.

Her dream of opening a cat cafe is now becoming a reality, and with her background, skills, and unwavering passion for cats, April is determined to make it a purr-fect success.

Meet Toni Fowler


Toni is a passionate animal lover with a lifelong devotion to cats. Her journey began as a child, convincing her parents to adopt a cat when they only owned dogs. Soon, she started adopting more feline companions.

While she briefly attended Kansas State University, Toni completed her education at Orange Coast Community College in California. Afterward, she worked at the Helping Hands Humane Society in Lawrence, KS. She currently works in accounting & taxation at her family's business.

In addition to her main role, Toni is engaged in a side e-commerce project aimed at raising funds for animals in need, covering companion animals, wildlife, and more.

Toni's dedication to her cats extends to their diet. She acquired a meat grinder to prepare healthy homemade meals, sparking her interest in nutrition, preventative health, and holistic practices.

Currently, she shares her life with seven charming felines: Charlie, Finn, Django, Ziggy, Tank, Meatwad, and Wolfgang. Ziggy is the lone female among them. Most are rescues, each with unique personalities that keep Toni on her toes!  Sadly, she recently lost her oldest cat, Jack, to hyperthyroidism, further fueling her passion for raising awareness about this condition.

We're excited to have you on this journey with us as we turn our dream into a reality.
