The internet was visibly excited this past March when Happy Tabby Cat Cafe announced plans to debut as the city’s first cat cafe.

Apparently, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, as local feline enthusiast Haydn Hilton recently shared plans via Facebook to bring a second similar concept to town.

Last week, Hilton announced that the cafe would be called Catlanta Cafe. However, the social media community was quick to point out that the name was already taken by a popular local artist, known for placing tiny painted wooden cats throughout the city. Now, the cafe is back to looking for a name, and Hilton is taking suggestions via Facebook and Instagram.

At the location (which has not yet been secured), patrons can expect to pay a fee to enter the “cat lounge,” which would include a cup of specialty coffee plus one hour with the cats. The lounge would be separate from the cafe in compliance with health regulations. Also, there would also be a private room available for the felines to take a break when they need to do so.

The concept has partnered with PAWS Atlanta to provide all adoptable cats for the establishment.

In addition to coffee, the cafe plans to serve prepackaged food from The Gathering Industries, a local non-profit which employs and offers vocational training to the homeless.

A Kickstarter page has been set up to help fund the operation. The campaign has raised $3,536 of the $20,000 goal so far.

According to a timeline on the Kickstarter page, buildouts are expected to begin in August if all goes according to plan.

What should the concept be called? Tell us your thoughts below…

  1. I hear this cafe’s already further along with code requirements as well. Hope this one makes it! Glad it’s asking the community for their opinion, too. Good luck!

  2. I’m really excited to learn more about this cafe! I love that they are working with multiple non profits! What a great idea!
