Where else would you find specialty cups of coffee, adoptable cats and kittens in a spacious lounge all while contributing to our local community?
Java Cats Café is where all of the above will become a reality!
What is a Cat Café?
The first cat cafe opened in 1998 in Taipei, Taiwan. They have since been popping up all over the world! ! A cat café is, essentially, a café where you can not only enjoy your favorite cup of coffee, but have a purfectly good time in a room full of cats. (and this is a magical experience!)
What's So Special About Java Cats Café?
- We have partnered with PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill animal shelter in Georgia. We will serve as a foster for up to 20 cats at a time in our cat room. ALL of our kitties will be adoptable through PAWS! This gives the cats an amazing opportunity to live in a customized cat paradise while being loved on every day, allowing their personalities to shine, until they find their furever home!
- We will also serve pre-packaged food products from The Gathering Industries. This is a non-profit who works with current residences from the Atlanta Mission and equips them with culinary skills while being paid. The Gathering will then find them a job within the restaurant industry.
- Java Cats Café not only helps cats find homes, supports a non-profit that helps the homeless through Atlanta Mission, but will also be involved in making the community a better place by supporting local businesses!

Risks and challenges
1.) Health inspection should not take long, however, should we run into any complications it could extend the opening date. As you can imagine, there are many health code regulations that we must comply to once we secure our location, BUT we are confident we can and will pass!
2.) Finding the right location at the right price. Atlanta is growing at an incredible rate, so finding the perfect building in our ideal area might take time.
3.) Construction and build-outs could take more time, money, and/or permits than planned, which could add on time.
4.) Kickstarter may fail :(
If the Kickstarter fails, we will still pursue our dream; it just might take a little bit longer than expected with financial set backs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
