Today I was reading online news stories and came across this one, about the cat cafes of Tokyo, Japan:
What an interesting idea. People having their coffee and spending time with cats, who entertain them just by hanging around and amusing themselves. This would be a great way to give homeless cats a place to live and be cared about, and give those without pets a chance to interact with them. Ok, it's not for everyone but according to the article, the premises are kept spotlessly clean. Also, there's a "no tail-pulling" mandate, and kids aren't allowed for that reason. Interesting. A serene atmosphere of animal appreciation, coffee and tea. It's a good thing.
