Yes, a cat cafe is a real thing. No, the cats aren’t the only thing on the menu. Cat cafes are already quite popular in a few other places around the world, namely Japan, where patrons can pay to get into a cat cafe where cats can be watched, played with, and petted.
Now, Vancouver could be getting its very own cat cafe if the city approves business entrepreneur Michelle Furbacher’s proposal. Support for the idea has already been overwhelming, and while it may be impossible to serve food or drinks at the cat cafe because of strict bylaws, Furbacher has other plans in mind.
