EILENE SHAFFER,
OWNER, FOUNDER

Hello. Thank you for stopping by. I’m Eilene, owner of MeWow. I’ve done many things in my life but the things I like best are cats, coffee, desserts, and people. That explains it! 

KARLA SHAFFER, 
STAFF

I’m Karla, Eilene’s daugher. I mentioned the idea of a cat cafe, and 3 years later here we are. This year I’m a senior in high school and I get to hang out/work at MeWow. I’m a huge animal lover of all kinds. Like a cat, I’m not a morning person.

ALYSSA DESTEFANO, 
STAFF

Hi, my name’s Alyssa! I’m from Bucks County and currently studying Psychology with the hopes of one day becoming a therapist or counselor. I have four cats that I love dearly. My interests include reading, dancing, and, gardening. 

HEATHER MILNTHORP, 
STAFF

My name is Heather. I’m an avid scientist and animal enthusiast. When not working as a research scientist in the field of forensic biology, I enjoy spending time at my home in Perkasie with my fiance Ross and our five pets, four cats, and English Springer Spaniel. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, and snuggling on the couch with my fur babies.

MARIAH PRAUL, 
STAFF

This is Mariah Praul. One of MeWow’s most dedicated employees who wouldn’t do her bio. Her boss, me, Eilene, trolled her Instagram, captured this picture and wrote her bio. A complete cat loving woman with an enormous heart. She even adopted FIV positive cat that she had until it very recently passed. Her animal passion is equal to her organizing skills. She somehow manages the chaos that happens everywhere at MeWow. If you visit, most likely she’ll be here, and so will I. Her boss who wrote this.
