Master of all things written. Sworn to be the last bastion of literacy and holder upper of books. His name is Cat.
Last weekend was a three day weekend so I decided to do something fun: visit the local cat cafe. It had been a while and the last time I went was a bit of a mixed bag as far as experiences went. This time I went alone and just focused on playing with the kitties.
I spent a sizable portion of new year’s eve at Cafe MoCHA in Sakae. There, I played with some cute kitties, while I waited for 2018 to end.
Due to the holiday, the shop was busy, and it closed early. There was also the weekend/holiday price to concider.
However, I did only spend about $28 for three hours and unlimited drinks. So I guess it wasn’t too bad.
I did have fun with one cat in particular. A black scottish fold, who loved chest scratches.
A new Cat Cafe, called MoCHA, opened in Nagoya last month. It’s only a minute or so from Yabacho Station, in the Sakae Become building. It shares the second floor with another themed cafe.
Inside is a cat’s paradise, filled with comfy seating and tons of places to climb.
The fees average around ¥1200 for one hour or ¥200 per 10 minutes. For ¥380 extra, you can have access to an unlimited drink bar. For those who use LINE, theres also coupons available, if you friend them.
I stayed almost four hours, drifting between various activities. There are reclining seats, booths, a video game corner, the biggest cat tree I’ve ever seen, and plenty of cat toys. Also, the majority of the cats are still kittens.
I made friends with two kittens, a Russian Blue (Sally) and a Munchkin (Michelle). Both fell asleep after a little petting.
Sally slept for over an hour, but was a ball of energy and affection after he woke up. Yes, Sally is a boy.
Michelle on the other hand, was only interested in my skirt. She suffers from palsy so running, jumping, and general coordination are difficult for her. She ended sleeping on part of my skirt for twenty minutes, until I had to wake her up to go.
