Well, Tokyo actually

“I took time out of my precious vacation to conduct some intensive research into the fascinating phenomenon of Tokyo Cat Cafes.”

A delightful idea, and they’ll certainly be on the schedule if I ever make it to Tokyo. But — between the likelihood of cat hairs in the coffee, animal rights nutters breaking in at night to “rescue” them, and (as the author of the article points out) Western blokes using them as “pussy pick-up” joints — I can’t see such cafes working in the British Isles. Volunteering at the local cat rescue centre, and having a cup of tea with the cat-lady, is probably about as close as we’re likely to get.
