Many people pair their coffee with something sweet. But in Japan, they prefer something soft and furry! A unique trend has seen around 100 cat cafes spring up around Tokyo in recent years.
Customers are invited to enjoy their coffee in the company of friendly cafe cats, who are keen to play, be petted, and generally enjoy all the attention showered upon them by cat lovers who find it too difficult to keep a pet of their own in this high-density metropolis. Some of these cafes specialize in certain breeds or types of cats — even presenting a “menu” of the different feline playmates on offer for patrons.
We’ll take a latte with a side of tabby, thanks!
