all about japanese cats

i went to a cafe that feeds stray cats. this cat was snoozing on top of the aircon unit

this sweet black and white one was in the cafe

i noticed most japanese cats i came across are chubby and plump

saw a man walking a very big dog in the park

at 1pm, i went to the cat cafe which i have made a reservation. it was packed with humans!

So it was two different cafes?

I think the first one is very noble to feed and take care of the strays.

In the second one, I am surprised to see male patrons

cat_aunty, males like cats also neh, like me and papa porky and vegancat. :)

I will make my way there in May (hopefully) and cuddle everyone of them (the cats, not the cafe patrons lah) .

ksn, can send me the addresses of the 2 cat cafes to Are they any good?

haha... yes, kxbc and cat_aunty, actually cats are loved by men as well. especially in japan. i have a video of a man feeding stray cats with his young toddler daughter (which i will upload soon).

kxbc, i dont have the address of the cafe that feeds stray cats (i chanced upon it while flipping through a tokyo cat cafe magazine, which i didnt buy). i can however, pass you a copy of the map of the town. it is just outside the inokashira park.

the other cat cafe is worth a visit imho, if you have 1 hour and 800 yen to spend. but try not to go on a weekend. i went on a saturday and it was PACKED. the address is on the website

let me know when your trip is confirmed. i can give you specific directions.

The picture looks familiar, or perhaps most cat cafe layout similar.Is the cafe in Kichijoji 吉祥寺?

kuro.shiro.neko said...

hi kaori, yes, the cafe is in 吉祥寺

kxbc, actually, I believe vegancat started out as a dog person, just like me. Cats are a latter acquired taste...when they refused to leave my old house...and subsequently, my bed. :)

kuro.shiro.neko said...

me too! i started off with a dog, then later converted to being a cat person.

i can say now that i prefer cats to dogs.
