Inga first came up with the idea of opening a cat cafe in Rock Hill in March of 2021. She had just experienced the loss of her mother and father, and wanted to put something positive back into her community. Christmas 2022 she revisited this idea when she took in Foster; a super friendly black cat who had been living outside in her neighborhood. She visited the cat cafes in Charlotte NC; Mac Tabby and Daily Mews and loved her experiences there. She started to research cat cafes online and came across popular cafes such as Crumbs and Whiskers, Shabby Tabby, and more. In the first few months of 2023 she visited the three existing cat cafes in South Carolina; Mews and Brews, Pounce, and Purr & Pour. She met with her investment advisors and started a partnership with the Small Business Development Center at Winthrop to develop a business plan and realize the financial potential. Her best friend, Kallie Cromer joined the business venture and came up with the name Purrfect Pair to honor our mothers Peggy and Sharon.
