“Irish coffee” does it have whiskey in it?
Cat cafes in Korea….
I have visited at least 3 cat cafes. I only have pictures of the first time because the other times I decided to get more cat friendly instead of walking around taking pictures of them sleeping…
I TOTALLY recommend visiting a cat cafe when in Korea. Not only is it quite a Korean experience its also a real nice time pass if you usually tend to live alone and have no pets. During that time I was going through some issues and going to the cafe made me feel so loved. (this was when I concluded I am to become an old lady with many cats.) I have to go there once more before I leave Korea.
The price isn’t expensive considering you get to pet the cats, feed them, play with them and spend time with them. Without the worry about cleaning up after them or any of the other stuff + the coffee or other drink is included in the price. It was 8000won when I went to the cafe.
I guess some people may be considering the hygene and such other issues. However, you have to sanitize your hands before you get in and they give you different slippers to change into. A bag is provided to keep the cat fur off your jacket and bags. The cats do get on the table and walk around however, your coffee is within the cup so theres no problem there. The people behind the counter see to the hygene issues well. Unlike in the dog cafe where workers had to run up to clean up after the dogs, in the cat cafes the cats go out into an area that visitors aren’t allowed to enter and they do their stuff there. The place DOES NOT smell (the dog cafe did…)… Upon leaving, there are rollers provided to get rid of the fluff from your clothes along with freshner and sanitizer. As long as you see that your cup isnt left unintended (so that the cat wont drop it over or something…) all is well…
Most of the pictures will be of one cat that I found at a Hongdae cafe. This cat was one of the few that wasn’t asleep, she was really friendly and she replied when I went up to her and meow-ed x) hahaha… <3
