A Cat Cafe in Budapest

A Cat Cafe in Budapest

What’s right, or wrong, with this picture? That depends on your particular set of allergies, thoughts about hygiene, and love of furry feline creatures.

Budapest is home to one of the new breed of cat cafe’s springing up around the world.

They are either the best friend to a traveler who need an occasional feline fix (such as ourselves) or a complete house of horrors to those who despise cats, or just hate the thought of dining with one.

We found this one around the corner from our apartment, and after about five seconds of debate, decided that we needed to check it out.

Don’t mind me

Here the cats roam around freely. According to the waitress, this black and white one pictured below waits for the opportune moment to hop onto your toasty keyboard for a catnap.

Do you have room at your table for one more?

There are plenty of spots for the cats to hang out, or to make their escape if needed from young sticky fingered ones.

The idea isn’t a new one, there are cat cafes in several cities, such as London, Paris, SingaporeChiang Mai, Thailand and in Oakland, California.

We’ve provided the links, just in case you are in one of these cities and need to experience one of these places for yourself. Some of the cafes have taken in the cats and who now consider the cafe their home. Others focus on cat adoptions.

I have heard a lot more of these popping up around the world. Animal cafes seem to be especially popular in Japan. Cats are cool although I prefer dogs. I would probably only go to say I went, but not as something I would do often other than that.

Yeah, we really just went as a lark, and since it was right around the corner from our apartment. The WIFI and coffee were good though, so I could see us going again.

Ok... I had to check the date on this to make sure it wasn't April 1st. Seriously, cat cafes??!!

I'm going to be honest, I am incredibly allergic to cats so this would be my nightmare! However, it does look very cool and I'm sure the cats and patrons love the concept. Now, if there was a dog cafe I would be all over that. I think there's a cafe in South Korea that has goats and other farm animals so maybe dogs are that far off! Cool concept!

Understood. I think there's even a bunny cafe in Japan. That's going a little too weird for me, though.

I really like cats and my parents have 3. The most important thing is that the cats feel comfortable hanging around strangers, which apparently they do! Need to check out the London one soon.

These guys were pretty comfortable with us. One tried to take a nap on my keyboard.
