We believe that every cat deserves to experience the thrill of the outdoors, and we’re dedicated to making that a reality. Whether you’re a seasoned adventurer or a first-time cat camper, we’ve got you covered.

The Meowa Story: From One Cat-Loving Adventurer to Many

Meowa was founded in 2019 by Laurent, a lifelong cat enthusiast and owner. It all started when he discovered the joys of taking his youngest Bengal cat on outdoor adventures. He saw firsthand how these experiences enriched both his life and his cat’s, and he knew that other cat owners would benefit from this too.

That’s why Laurent decided to create Meowa.com, a resource for cat owners who love the great outdoors and want to share that passion with their feline friends. With his background in graphic design, photography, and video editing, Laurent brings a unique perspective to Meowa and a commitment to showcasing the beauty of the great outdoors and the adventures of our feline friends.

  • With a background in professional graphic design, photography, and video editing, he brings a unique blend of creative skills and travel expertise to his role as a backpacker, hiker, and animal lover
