    At the end

    Most of cat cafe have some rule that you have to follow. For instance, you are not supposed to gather them. This is because it can make them annoyed and hate being with human beings. Guests need to be careful to let them feel comfortable.

    And some stores limit the time of guest’s staying. 90 minutes, 120 minutes… something like this. The one I have been once didn’t have time limit so I stayed for hours!

    Even if you love cats and can’t live with them, no worries! It is worth paying 1000 yen to spend your time with those adorable cats.
