I truly believe that a large part of my (yet to be discovered) purpose on this planet has to do with animals and while I love all animals…cats and I just have a mutual understanding with each other. Plainly put, I am not a cat person. At all. However, I have very good friends here that are cat people to the same extent of which I am a dog person. For that reason alone, I willingly spent about an hour inside a cat café. And Garfield walked us there.
For those that don’t know what a cat café is- it is a café (coffees and teas available for purchase) with twenty or so cats roaming the room looking for new friends. You pay a small entrance fee (likely to help pay for their food and litter) and your first beverage is on the house.
That made me smile. A lot.
Lee Ann and Kate had an awesome time playing with the cats. And I had a lovely time making up silly cat dialogue in my head.
For all you cat people out there I will include a lot of pictures.
You aren’t allowed to pick up the cats. Apparently they will protest.
How to read the cat tail.
This café was located in Myeong-Dong, in Seoul and Kate located it while Lee Ann and I were shopping. I’m 100% not a cat person (as previously discussed) but I was very impressed with this café. When you imagine a cat café you probably don’t envision a very clean place. However, it was spotless. It was a large room with wood floors and all wood furniture and I didn’t see a single strand of cat fur the whole time I was there. There was no litter box odor, nothing. It actually smelled good. It was so clean! While I can’t promise that I’ll ever go back, I am now that much more encouraged to locate the local doggie cafes as well! It was pretty cool.
