The Cat Cafe

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.


  1. I'm glad you went with us, and it was a great experience. We must find some doggie cafes, though. :)

  2. This is highly informatics, crisp and clear. I think that everything has been described in systematic manner so that reader could get maximum information and learn many things.

  3. very informative. amazing article. very short and to the point. I like mainly this "inhale. exhale. repeat."
