Japan hosts numerous cat cafés that invite people to drink coffee in the relaxing company of friendly cats. Guests may bring their own toys to play with cats and surf the Internet, play Nintendo Wii or order another drink when they prefer a break from petting the cats.

There are around 100 cat cafés in Japan many of which have particular type of cats, such as black cats, fat cats or rare breed cats. These special cafés with furry patrons are especially popular as dating spots but people of all ages enjoy the company of cats in clean and cozy environments.

Recently a Tokyo city ordinance debated whether or not businesses displaying animals should close their doors at 8 pm in order for the cats to get a longer rest. However, this is the time of day when cats are in their liveliest mood and most want to interact with guests. As the cat café owners are known to guarantee their feline residents a high quality of life, Tokyo decided to make a special exception for the cat cafés which are now allowed to stay open until 10pm.

Keeping animals in metropolitan areas may be challenging, so in lieu of this, an occasional visit to a cat café is an important routine for some animal lovers.
