Meet Allison

Allison Nicole is a local artist, cat lover, and recent UAB graduate. She loves visiting cat cafés while traveling, and decided while studying abroad in Paris that she wanted to open her own in Birmingham.

My mission is to provide a fun and unique place for students and the community at large to relax, study, caffeinate, and de-stress with cats!

That sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
