A cat cafe.
A cafe where you can plunk down some bucks for an hour of hanging out with kitties, maybe have a beverage. Mm. What a brilliant idea.

Yes, and the Japanese have done it. Owning a cat in Japan isn't easy due to housing constraints (no room, rules against). And unfortunately there are many pets dumped in Japan every year - but at the Cat Cafe Calico, they'll put up posters for abandoned cats seeking homes. The owner, Takafumi Fukui, just wants everyone to forget about everything and relax with some kitty lovin' - and they DO. Read about it here.

The word for "cat-cafe" in Japanese is "Neko-Kissa."

Want to go to the Cat Cafe Calico? Here you are.
