But First: What is a Cat Café?

The café part is pretty obvious: a place that serves beverages and perhaps light meals. People go to regular cafés to catch up with a loved one, meet someone new for the first time, read a book or to get some work done. Add ‘cat’ to the equation and you have a different type of café where furry companions await to keep you company. So, in a nutshell, cat cafés (also known as themed cafés) are places where you can be around or interact with cats.

Good to Know: You can’t just open a cat café. They need to be properly regulated.


Cat Flower Garden, the world’s first cat café, opened its doors in Taipei, Taiwan in 1998 after which the concept really blossomed in Japan.
