Cat Café

main image

If cats on the counters and little hairs in your tea don't bother you at all, then you are in luck! Similar to the Dogler trend, Cat Cafes are popping up all over Tokyo, providing a place for the cat-less to go and spend time with furry felines.

Isn't this just like going to a pet store though? Nope, the reason it's called a Café is there is a small menu of drinks and snacks to enjoy. Even more impressive is the menu of cats that these cafes are providing. The café is home to the cats, and they have a wide variety of cat breeds to please the patrons. Unlike a normal café, there are cat houses, scratching posts, and cat trees scattered among the couches and tables for humans.

So, what could be an allergy sufferer's nightmare, could be a haven to some. Meet up with your cat-lovin' friends for a cup o' joe and play with cats or sneek a snuggle with a sleepy one.

Because Tokyo is such a metropolis, living situations don't always allow for pets. The petting-zoo-come-coffee-shop-hybrid Cat Cafes are popping up all over the heavily populated areas, so the cat-less can experience the love and warmth of cats.

Do you think something like a Cat Café could ever work in the US? Would you go to one?

I think this is a great idea in metropolis areas such as Tokyo. This idea allows everyone to receive the love and warmth of a companion.

I would go to one, and I think it's a good idea for especially urban areas. I think as the USA fertility rate drops that this will become a more and more appealing idea. The only difference is, the USA has plenty of land and a majority of people have places to keep pats. However, with the increasing number of business travels this could find it's niche here as well. I know my mom and dad could use one sometimes on their lonely business travels.

What do you think?
