Catfeinated is a new concept in animal adoption. The proposed Wine Country cat cafe would serve coffee, wine, and beer to patrons—while also giving them a setting in which to enjoy the company of furry felines (who, through a partnership with a local shelter, are available for adoption). The idea brings cat-lovers together with adoptable pets who need good homes, while also offering the cats love and socialization. Even those who aren’t in a position to adopt can come to Catfeinated to hang out and share their affection for these animals. To make this dream a reality, the creators of Catfeinated have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds.
Cat cafes have sprung up around the world in recent years, including notable success KitTea (located in San Francisco), a place where visitors can enjoy sipping their favorite beverages while playing with adoptable pets. Catfeinated is looking to KitTea as a model, and will work with a local animal shelter to foster cats at the cafe itself. Cats will be carefully chosen and fully vetted, allowing potential adopters to relax and enjoy spending time with their future pets.
While adoption is the end-goal, those who aren’t yet prepared to adopt can enjoy “cat time” until they are ready; they can play and relax with the current cafe residents, and develop bonds with the animals, even if they are unable to provide a home for them currently.
Catfeinated will offer free WiFi and a coworking space so that people can come to study, read, or work in the company of furry friends. It will also offer yoga, art, and other group classes, to establish a community and broaden outreach. Any additional funds collected beyond the Kickstarter goal will be used to create a kitten room, and to add more services.
The Kickstarter campaign, located on the web at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/123500279/catfeinated-cat-cafe, offers pledge levels from $3 to $1,000, with rewards ranging from stickers, buttons, t-shirts, and tote bags to a chance to name the mascot of Catfeinated.
