Hadyn Hilton has a name and logo for her forthcoming cat cafe. After initially calling it Catlanta before changing directions to avoid conflict with a local artist, Hilton put the name up to a fan vote. The people have spoken, and her cafe will be called Java Cats.
NAME ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!! Tallied the submissions and Java Cats clawed its way to the lead by 3 votes! Java Cats Café for the win! Thank you for all of your participation! Regardless of name, at the end of the day we will be helping cats find their forever homes and supporting a nonprofit that benefits the homeless. So excited to continue with our new name! BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! Now you can help us choose our new logo! Left blue and black is A and right black is B!! Cast your votes! Congrats @cdubsnesmith & @destinycopley !! ##whyiloveatl #weloveatl #catstagram #catcafe #javacatscafe #logo #cats
And in the spirit of democracy, Hilton put the final logo up for a vote as well.
Hilton has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her venture, and as of this posting she's raised more than $5,600 from 66 contributors. Another forthcoming Cat Cafe, April Hill's Happy Tabby, is soliciting donations via Kickstarter as well. Both are looking to open their cafes somewhere on the East Side of Atlanta.
