I'm just sayin'.....

The Japanese have cornered the market on weird and cute. Not always at the same time. Sometimes just weird, sometimes just cute. But I will say that the idea of cat cafes definitely falls into the weird-cute intersect.

A cat cafe is a cafe where for about $8 an hour you can go and pat the feline staff. The cats are there for the sole purpose of being patted and played with. Of course, given the general arrogance of cats, this probably only happens at the cats' convenience. The reason that the place is called a cafe is because you can order tea or coffee while you pat the cats, because otherwise the places look more like kindergarten classrooms than cafes.

Anyway, I find this completely hilarious and I just had to share.

    I would go to one.
    That cat is really odd, but I find it strangely endearing at the same time.

    Could they perhaps outfit the cats (especially that low-slung and thus stable cat) with little trays to bring drinks to customers?

    I think you should open up Brooklyn's first cat cafe.
