As a logo designer myself, the logo is okay in terms of design, but it concerns me that the length relative to the height seems too great and when shrunk to fit certain items, the iconic portion might get lost.

Harbourcats? Is that a real thing, or is it just like a feral cat that hangs around the water? And the logo... the negative space in the "u" looks like a giant beaver tooth. Not a fan of the team brand.
That's exactly what I thought.
Remind me again what the FastCat ferry logo was?

Like I said, I don't hate it, but it strikes me as pretty weird. Logo looks like a cheap piece of graphic design work as well, especially compared to the Sweets, Bells, Eagles or even the Bears.

First thing that came to mind was the Fast Cat ferries and the logo looks the same too

What probably happened was they got together in the board room and made two columns on the whiteboard. First, they brainstormed geographical landmarks. In the second column they listed relevant animal names. A lot of the good names were tossed out as they had already been used, like Seals and lions and various types of salmon. By the end of the afternoon the last names remaining were Harbour and Cats. They handed the name off to the only guy in the room that could work Adobe Illustrator and there we are.
