Cat cafes have taken off in popularity in Asia and has started to spread around the world. If you happen to be in Tokyo, you can visit the largest cat cafe in the city called The Calico Cafe. Filled with scratching posts, kitty tree houses, perches, cardboard boxes and baskets to hide in, sunny window sills to lounge on, and feathery toys and cloth mice to swipe at, the cats have the run of the place while patrons pay the equivalent of $9.36 for an hour of cat play. For another 300 yen (about $2.80), they can make a cat’s day and buy a fortunate feline a small chicken snack.

Approximately 40 cats work the floor at the same time. Cats who don’t get along work different shifts, and each cat has its own cage in a private room. They spend the night in their cages and are fed in them to ensure that each cat gets the correct diet.
