cat cafes

Has anyone been to a cat cafe and was it worth it? There's one in the city closest to me and they charge you just for playing/petting with the cats
>>$25 for 30mins
>>$40 for 1 hr
>>$45 for an hour long puzzle activity
>>$60 for a 2hr movie screening
And you have to buy at least 1 drink or snack per hour from their cafe. The main reason I wanted to go is all the cats are available for adoption.

    Yes. There's one in Georgetown in DC. I took my GF there for her birthday. It was okay. Great if you're looking to adopt as you can spend real time with potential cats. Kind of lame as a cafe in and of itself.

    I've been to a few, and I would avoid the ones in large cities. The cats in those ones tend to be more afraid since people bring in loud kids who run around and scare them. The best ones are the ones in smaller towns and villages, the cats are much more friendly and the people who work there actually give a shit and tell kids to not chase the cats.

    One opened up near me and I've been to 4 different ones.
    The only one that was expensive was in London the rest didn't go over £10.
    The cats are always very well taken care of and friendly. Not well behaved at all so don't leave food unattended. Some cafes work as fosters as well were you can actually adopt the cats. If I didn't already have two I would have taken one home by now. Great for people who can't have animals but also for freaks like me who just love them.
    If they are charging you out the ass to go I wouldn't recommend it but if it's not too bad I say give it a go.

    been to one once in a poor country, actually
    all cats are very well behaved, used to lots of people and love scritches. they have places to go to if they've had enough of people and all customers are respectful. they arent allowed on tables or to eat/drink people food/drink. they are usually large, long haired kinds that are well groomed, but there are some other expensive breeds aswell. all spayed and neutered. kitty litter boxes hidden away and cleaned regularly. the human bathrooms honestly smelled worse. the whole place looked really cool with so many places for the cats to go to, climb, hide in or show off their massive size like a statue and it was all regularly cleaned. i think twice in those hours that we stayed there. if you love cats but cant keep one or if you just wanna see some rarer breeds without having to work in a cat breeder or rescue place or hotel or whatever, you should absolutely check out a cat café. 10/10, would visit again.

    some downsides: somewhat expensive food/drink, but no entry fee, so people tend to stay for a long time and queues are commonly long. there arent many of them. some places need you to reserve in advance.

      Thanks for your in depth review, I think I'll shell out for the 30 mins one just so I can try to adopt. Wish me luck

    I went to a couple, they’re fairly common in Asian cities
    They’re okay, sort of a photo op scene though, and anything you buy their will be overpriced
    I’d recommend it as a date
    If you love cats, just get your own cat - no need to pay $50 just to hang out with them for an hour

    I went to a bunny cafe in my town. You have to book an appointment beforehand and only one group is allowed in at a time. You have to wash your hands and they give you a cup of lettuce to feed the bunny (you don’t have to buy any drinks or snacks, the visit is $16 per person for an hour).
    You sit in a pen with a bunny and pet them until they don’t want to be pet anymore. Then you can sit and watch the bunny sleep or you can go into another pen to pet a different bunny (they have four).
    For $16 it was worth it for me because I’d never touched a bunny before. It was nice that they respected the bunnies when they didn’t want attention.

      That's what I said, it seems like a lot for just playing with cats. Though I like that the cats are being provided activities to do

    I've heard bad things about the cat cafe in my town. Animal shelters are poorly funded and workers are stretched thin enough, so I'm not surprised adding retail work and restaurant duties on top of that work leads to lax standards for a lot of things.

        Just that the cats don't seem happy most of the time, that the staff aren't very good with them or the customers, that it smells

          Well these cafes are just temporary shelter until they get adopted anyway

    Another victim of consumerism. I'm sorry for you anon. You could just go to a cat shelter if your goal is to be surrounded by cats.

    Also why can't more people see how unnatural and wrong it is to keep all those animals in a closed space exploited by selfish humans?
    With cats it is at least a bit more acceptable because cats can be domesticated, then there's stupid shit like fukuro cafe. It is straight up abuse towards wildlife.

      My goal is to adopt one and the shelter's require all these references I don't have. Figured this would be easier. A lot of these cafe cats were headed towards euthanasia. And I agree about fukuro and the fox village

        Dog cafes are actually very clean and orderly. The dogs are well trained and don't climb onto your plate or attack your pasta.

      Cat yoga while drinking rosé. Yes, this is very much a real thing.

      Maybe in the major cities that get trends first but it's new to a lot of the world

      I guess. Sorry if that sounded critical. I've been s city mouse my entire life.

      >because, again, this fad has been dead a decade now.
      What? Really? Pretty sure Japan/Korea still has them in droves. Don’t know about North America/Europe though

      >Japan/Korea still has them
      But they're weird.

      As said, I'd go to the rabbit cafe if it's still around. Bunnies are so sawft

    One just opened the next block down from me last week. I've not been and I've no intention to go but I thought that fad died a while ago. The rabbit cafe the next neighbourhood would be more my thing but I'm not sure they're still in business because, again, this fad has been dead a decade now.

            Fair point.
            If I ever manage to actually go to the bunny cafe, I'll take a look and see if there are wires anywhere and, if so, the status of those wires.

    How do they work? Are all the cats tested and vaccinated? Are they spayed/neutered? I assume there’s a separate area to play with the cats away from where you dine

      I'm assuming they'd have to be vaxxed in order to be adoption ready. And not from what I've seen. Cats move around the cafe freely and customers can feed them cat treats and ice water
