Meet the Owners

Rob, Rowan, & Angela Lang

Rob is a graduate of the Naval Academy & continues to serve his country as an active duty Naval Aviator.

Angela has a BA in Business & Business Management.

Rowan was born in 2018, so she is still learning the business!

Angela's background in business strategy, business management, & customer service contributes to her mindful, but competitive approach.

Angela is fueled by her passion for cats, pet care, & people. She considers herself a ‘forever student,’ eager to build on her academic foundations in business management & stay in tune with the latest technology, procedures, & professional development.

Our determination to improve our community & hunger for knowledge has played an important role in the MeowMANOR's continued success. We believe mindfulness in the workplace is key to success - a principle we live out through our interests in traveling, meditation, gardening, & bowling. 

The inspiration to open the MeowMANOR came from a time when our cats needed to be boarded several times, due to Rob's medical treatments in 2009. We noticed aspects of each boarding facility that could be improved. Everything from the smell, to the types of amenities offered for cats only, never met our standards. The MeowMANOR is designed around these high standards & the expectations we had when boarding our own cats. We are like you, we understand the need!
