2011 graduate Sarah is using her business to make an impact on the rehoming of rescue cats!

About CatPawCino

CatPawCino is a garden themed Cat Café that aims to create the feeling of the relaxing outdoors, indoors. The light, airy ground floor space gives the cats a fun environment to be in as well as offering customers a different experience.

Sarah moved to Newcastle from China eight years ago to study for a marketing degree, and over the years fell in love with the city. After graduating Sarah worked as a marketing executive, and a few years later began considering how she could contribute and add her stamp to the place she now called home.

For years Sarah longed for her own cat but didn’t get the opportunity until 2011 when she got her first cat Burton, a fluffy Chinchilla Persian. A few years later she got a second, third and fourth cat. Deciding to combine her love of cats and marketing knowledge, Sarah launched CatPawCino Cat Café in September 2015.
