Catfeinated Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Open Cat Cafe in Wine Country
Catfeinated is the name of a new concept: a cat cafe in wine country that gives patrons the opportunity to mingle with (and potentially) adopt cats and kittens.
August 19, 2016 ( datsyn.com) – Catfeinated is a new concept in animal adoption. The proposed Wine Country cat café 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 cafés 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 café 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 café 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 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.
