Isn't it time that Austin joined the ranks of other progressive cities with its own cat cafe?

Blue Cat Cafe wants to make it happen, and they are near the halfway point on their Kickstarter campaign.

Cafe + Adoptable Cats = WIN WIN

The Blue Cat Cafe team believe that true “cat haters” are few and far between and that the bottleneck to putting homeless kittens in loving homes is simply more “face-to-whisker” time. Numerous organizations in Austin like Thundering Paws exist to provide shelter to abandoned kittens. The Blue Cat Cafe aims to foster those cats at the cafe itself, and be an aid to the rescues in adoption!

Please consider donating to their  Kickstarter campaign and attending one of their local fundraising and awareness events. The next one will be this weekend!

The final results are in from the $5000 matching challenge. We raised $4730, so we did not quite reach our goal, but we are so happy with what we did achieve. Huge thanks to all who contributed, and to the original donor who agreed to the $5000 match. All the kitties, dogs, and bunnies at Thundering Paws appreciate every donation!
