Cat Cafes of East Asia

Cat cafes of Japan, East Asia. A review of cat cafes, pictures of cats and cat cafes

Cat cafes are becoming very popular in some East Asian locations. Tokyo and other prominent cities in Japan and its neighboring countries are home to an increasing number of cat cafes. The popularity of the cat cafes is on the upswing in the recent years in these places due to a myriad of reasons. It is generally perceived that in today’s tension-ridden lifestyle there is a greater need for frequent unwinding. These cat cafes and the kitties allow some relaxation and rewinding to those who are under the stress of routine hectic schedule.

Pet lovers who enjoy feline company also frequent these cat cafes. Yet another reason for the growing popularity of cat cafes is the lack of facility and time for some cat lovers to keep pets. In some housing societies the rules do not permit the occupants to keep pets in the apartments and hence cat lovers residing in those premises find these cat cafes ideal spots to spend enjoyable moments with their chosen kitties. Again, those who are regularly on the move and those who stay away from home such as businessmen, executives, employees, students, etc. find these places a means to satiate their pet love.

The cat cafes in Tokyo and other centers in Japan generally keep good stocks of books especially Japanese comic books and visitors can read and enjoy while they are in the company of their favorite kitties. Visitors can read or chat sipping their favorite drink and can lounge about with their favorite kitties playing around. They can touch, pat, caress, cuddle, take in their arms and can feed and pamper the cats they like. The visitors belong to a wide variety of professions, vocations and age-groups. There are students, employees, executives, businessmen, dating people, family, young couples, newly weds, senior citizens, teen girls, etcetera.
