OUR STORY...

We're Curtis and Taura Byrd, owners of Catfeine Cat Cafe. Our story starts in Anniston, Alabama, way back in 1997!  We met when Curtis replied to a classified ad placed in the local newspaper "female singer seeks bass player and drummer."  He was a drummer. I was the female singer. Our journey over the next 20 years includes getting married, playing in many bands, making the inevitable move to "Music City", working way too much, and raising many furbabies along the way! Opening a Cat Cafe became a dream of ours in 2015 after watching an episode of Shark Tank. We're cat people....but we had never heard of a cat cafe and fell completely in love with the concept!  We immediately began researching and learning all that we could about cat cafe's, like how they originated in Asia in 1998.  Since then, they have spread throughout the world, reaching the US just 5 short years ago! We knew we wanted to do this, but it was scary and overwhelming and we didn't even know where to start!  So why now, and why Murfreesboro? To be honest, our first thought was to open in Nashville.  But then we thought...we live in the Boro, and why should only the big cities get all the cool stuff?  Why Now?  Because  there is no better time than the present to try to make a difference in this world.  We're ready! And, after the outpouring of love and support from the community, we can see how ready the people are for it! 

Our target date to open is March 23rd....STAY TUNED!!!
