Tea & Tabbies.

After many, many hours spent in transit, I'm finally back in Brooklyn . (Thank you all, by the way, for your wonderful long-distance travel suggestions - they were lifesavers!) I'll be back to my usual, non-travel-related posting tomorrow, but first, I just had to share photos of the cat cafes that Max, Margaux, and I visited the last couple of days we were in Tokyo. (I realize cats have been a recurring topic on the blog this week - I swear I'm not a crazy cat lady!)

With that said, here are Margaux and Max at Cat Cafe Calico, in Kichijoji. 


A cat cafe is exactly what it sounds like: a place where customers can order tea or coffee, and spend time with some friendly felines.


Patrons can even pay a little extra to feed the cats.


And here we are at the second - much smaller - cafe, CatRoom Korune:


A few fuzzy faces:

These cats were so amazing, I don't think the pictures do them justice! Natasha - if you like cats, this is definitely paradise :)

The cats look so fluffy! :3 But I really wish there'd be a dog cafe, or (better yet) a puppy cafe, too! :)

Shoko said...

Ley - Yes! We were talking about that, too - why are there no puppy cafes??

so adorbz! i wish we had something like that in nyc--i bet it would allay the winter blues. i think the closest thing we have is the herd of cats that gather around the public library in williamsburg.

Shoko said...

MySoonjo - Haha, thank you! What a compliment!

jiji - There's a herd of cats around the public library in Williamsburg? Definitely going to keep an eye out for that!

I would be for the puppy cafe! That would be adorable, just when you were feeling like you need a little love. I'm a bit concerned about cat hair flying through the air and into said tea though. Ha

This is my DREAM. I love cats. (Oddly, my own cats don't get a whole lot of attention, but I could pet the ones in bodegas and on the street for hours.) They are so cute; I am DYING.
