Today I acquired some life-altering information:
There is such a thing as a cat café.
|"Excuse me, please stay out of my tea."|
You go, there are cats there, you can buy food, you might need to pay an hourly fee.
There are about 100 cat cafés in Japan. Apparently their popularity stems from most landlords in Japan refusing to allow tenants to have cats.
As far as I can tell via Google, there are no cat cafés in the United States.... yet. Should I take a break from college and start one in MA? This is a real consideration. I imagine that there would be a huge market for this around here. I would definitely go to one!
|Notice the cat furniture in the window inviting cats to display themselves to passersby|
|I think the attentiveness of the cats may be a bit exaggerated here.|
|Very similar to the above photo, but the cats and humans have swapped roles.|
"Some cat cafés feature specific categories of cat such as black cats, fat cats, rare breed cats or ex-stray cats."
If I decide to open a cat café, I would like it to be basically a normal café (with great vegetarian food) that just happens to have cats. And there would be no hourly fee unless problems arose. Anyone interested in being my business partner?
