One Hour of Heavy Petting

I went to a cat cafe in Osaka yesterday. Although, describing it as a “cafe” is somewhat misleading. It’s more of a cat brothel than a cat cafe.

It’s hidden inside a nondescript office building. An elevator discreetly whisks you up to the third floor. The elevator opens into a small hallway where you must remove your shoes and put on a pair of slippers.

You are then directed to the counter to pay in advance. Six hundred yen (about $5) gets you all the cats you can stroke for an hour.

After you have removed your shoes, sterilized your hands and paid your money, it’s time to get down on your knees and play with the cat of your choice.

The cafe is called Neko no Jikan (or “Cat Time” in English).

I had never heard of cat cafes before coming to Japan

Cat cafes are a great idea, especially for people whose landlords won’t allow pets in their buildings. Or for people who can’t have a cat because they live with an allergic partner.
