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.
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.
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 Prague, London, Paris, Singapore, Chiang 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.
What do you think? Would you consider visiting a cat cafe while traveling?
