Cafe Cats and Cat Cafes
Spotted this well camouflaged cat at Seven in Brixton Market today.
Tiger is from the veg shop behind but has adopted this spot - very wise.
At the Scooterworks cafe in Waterloo Bobatina chooses a good seat....
...from which to get all the attention she needs.
In Japan a Cat Cafe is a whole different thing - like a brothel with cats! Lovely cats will join you at the table.....
Before I went to the Hapineko cafe, I had a look at their website. You can look at albums of photos of each of the cats - called "staff". When I got there a Siamese called Mimi made straight for my lap, so of course she was my instant favourite.
These cafes started because cats are so popular in Japan but flats are often small with no outdoor space and people work long hours - so instead of owning your own you can buy a coffee and a half hour in a cat cafe!
