Behind The Scenes of Cat Cafes

Behind The Scenes of Cat Cafes

They are now everywhere: Taiwan, Melbourne, New York, London and in many more cities around the world. Cat Cafes have captured many visitor’s attention in the last couple of years. The first cat cafe was opened in 1998 in Taiwan, Japan. Cat Cafes offer a very different social experience where you can have a coffee and enjoy the benefits of owning a cat by spending some quality time with them. This is great if you cannot own a cat for many different reasons.

 

How It Works

Cat cafes are regular coffee houses that keep a bundle of cats for you to watch, pet and play with. Most cats are from rescue shelters. You will be charged a small cover fee additionally to the drinks and food you order. There a set of rules customers have to respect. For example, you are not allowed to wake up a sleeping cat or use flash when you take photos.

As well, if you ever go to Tokyo and want to try something similar and new, go visit the world’s first cat pub in Tokyo. It is called the Neko Bar Akanasu. You can add this to the special places you’ve visited. So, what do you think about these concepts?

Hi,wonderful idea…I note everyone does not have eyes on a little hand held ’box’how much better petting a cat.I know of a Cafe in Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia Leo’s have a beautiful cat that when you sit at garden tables visits you,not sure if allowed inside,I often have catnip with me often,so comes in handy!(for outside!) I think a good idea would be,only if the person knew what they were doing of course,if was a little area away from food where they could groom a cat,again of course if cat liked it,(many do)and this could help insure hair was not a problem.I find gently brushing them is a pleasant calming thing to do.I wonder how the places have managed to get around the Goverment Regulations?? It seems one is lucky to be able to take a ’Service dog in a restaurant here.Anyone who cries allergies,just does not have to go there!So as long as everything is kept scrupulously clean,and I would say not too many cats,it is a great idea,I am sure I will come up with other ideas soon!!Oh yes, people should not feed the cats.
