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.

The Best Plan

This week was… interesting. I would like nothing more than to follow this cat’s example, but I’ve much to do this weekend. Ah well….

Ending the Year at a Cat Cafe

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.

Sleeping Doggo

On our way to the Skytree, we came across an interesting reststop. At the corner of two rows of building, someone converted the tiny triangle of space into a vending machine corner, with a bin for garbage, a mirror for freshing up at, and a windowed alchove for their dog.

The drinks were all very cheap, costing on average around ¥100, so V and I stopped for a bit. We drank our tea while watching the cute dog nap. Not once did an eye open.

Once we were done, we binned out bottles, and wiped ourselves down with some handy wipes scented like lemons and mint. Then we headed back out into the heat towards the Tokyo Skytree.

A Return to Cafe Calico

A trip to Tokyo is incomplete without a stop at Cafe Calico in Shinjuku. The cafe is a short ten minute walk from Shinjuku’s East exit. The fee is cheaper than most pet cafes and the staff there (both human and feline) are really friendly. Some of the staff also speak basic English if that’s a concern.

Purfect Portraits

Towards the end of my winter vacation, I took a quick visit to one of my favorite cat cafes in Yabacho. While there, I played with the kitties and tool some pictures.

It had been a while since I had ladt visited an animal cafe, though I did try to visit a reptile one while in Osaka. Unfortunately due to it being so close to the holidays, it was completely booked up.

Each time I do find myself at one of these cafes, I tend to find myself disappointed, since the cats never seem overly interested in us two legged folk. 

One downside to living in Japan is not being able to keep a pet. Besides the logistical bits, such as apartment size and my work schedule, I alway worry about my residence status. If I had to leave the country tomorrow, heaven forbid, what would become of my furry friend?

That’s the thought that kept me from springing for a pet friendly apartment after I moved back to Nagoya.
