The Japanese love cats. However, many Japanese don’t have room to keep a cat. To satisfy their cat needs, people visit cat cafes where they can pet, play, and feed cats. Such cat cafes are slowly spreading to other parts of the world, but if you have a chance to visit Japan, you can see the original cat cafes and the people who care for these cats.
Given the choice between sharing a public space with a cat or with an obnoxious stranger, it’s easy to see why so many people would rather be with a bunch of cats instead.
