Cat cafes, as the name suggests, are establishments where one can enjoy the company of a cat, while sipping along to one’s beverage of choice. Enjoying your coffee in the company of a sweet purring cat is definitely a very delightful, unique and excitingly cozy experience.
The concept of cat cafes, originated in Taiwan. It attracted a huge amount of Japanese visitors, and soon Japan opened up its very own cat cafe in Osaka, in 2004. Other countries have jumped on the chance to start their own purring cafes and so the trend for cat cafes continues to purr on with cat cafes opening up in many different parts of the world. Cat cafes are most common in bigger cities, where people tend to live in small apartments, not really suited for animals.
