    Cat cafes are popping up in Brisbane too. It certainly is a great way for rescue cats to find a great home. I myself have never visited one, but I can imagine it would be nice way to have a cup of tea with friends 🙂

      Seems like it’s swept the nation! I went with to girlfriends and we had a nice time having chai and playing with the cats! 🙂

    Those cats are such a cutie. I love them for being clean. The place looks cozy and friendly. It would be a nice place to stay more especially for cat lovers.

      A few of my friends were skeptical when I told them I was going to a cat cafe. They weren’t sure about drinking or eating in the same room with them however, as you noticed, everything is incredibly clean! For those who aren’t interested in dining inside the cat area there is seating outside with separate ventilation! 🙂

    We live in South Korea so we’ve visited a few cat cafe’s over the years. They’ve even got sheep cafe’s here now! I always assumed that in North America it wouldn’t pass the health inspection or something! It’s great when shelter cats get homes in these places. I’ve never been to one that had such a good menu as samosas and such!

      The cafes we visited in Asia are very different from the ones in the States! I think they pass inspection because they have separate ventilation systems and it’s optional to dine inside the area with cats. 🙂 A sheep cafe sounds quite intriguing! I’d love to hear more about it.

    Wow this one is organized a little different than the one I visited in Milan. We did not need a reservation, nor did we have to pay an entrance/reservation fee. Do you know the reason why they charge a fee? Does it go towards supplying food for the cats? It is also a shame we can only stay for 1 hour 🙁 I could be there all day haha

      The cafes in Japan all require a reservation and fee (much higher than this) so that is so interesting to hear how they vary across the globe! From my understanding, they charge a fee to go towards the shelter expenses for the cats as well as the baked goods and drinks. You receive a complimentary beverage and 20% off any food while visiting so that’s a plus! The hour time limit isn’t too bad because they are VERY lenient on it. 😉

    Awww, I just love this! I was expecting to read about a place where you take your own cat for lunch. But, I just adore the concept that the kitties are up for adoption!

      I loved the concept too. I also think it also helps them develop their personalities more.

    The concept of the cafe is wonderful. The cats get a home and proper care that they deserve and the humans also relax themselves with the company of these lovely adorable creatures.

    I love that Mauhaus Cat Cafe has found homes for over 20 cats! I think that should be the true nature of this type of establishment but it’s also great that these shelter cats can roam around freely instead of being in a cage.

      I’m glad you loved that too! So much better than being in a cage and they get to interact with people which I believe will make them the most friendly cats around. 🙂

    Mauhaus Cat Cafe and Lounge looks amazing and I loved its decor! It looks very soothing and welcoming. That cup of coffee looks yum and glad to know that they have found the home for more than 20 kitties. I’d love to visit there!
