We've learned that the beloved fluffy cat, Colonel Meow has recently passed away. Our hearts go out to his family and minions.
Cat cafes, establishments that allow you to make feline friends while you enjoy your coffee, already exist in Paris and Japan, and the concept will soon hit San Francisco.
A Canadian student studying in Japan created this video tour of a few of Japan's best cat cafes.
That's right, a cat cafe (that's a cafe filled with cats) is coming to the City by the Bay later this year. Founders David Braginsky and Courtney Hatt, who have dubbed the cafe "KitTea" describe their business as "part 'gourmet tea house' and hart 'cat and human oasis.'"
The goal of KitTea is to not only provide homeless cats with a place to call home, but to also bring humans and cats together in purrfect harmony. Here's how the cafe is described to work:
Patrons will partake of all the enjoyment and therapy that cats provide, while enjoying healthy blends of exotic teas that are ecologically sourced from around the world. Our cats will enjoy a high-quality, elegant home constructed expressly for their pleasure.
A company out of Germany called Goldtatze (Golden Paw) builds elaborate walkways, perches, and scratching posts for your cat out of natural materials like wood and rope. The company also does custom installations so that your home can be filled with bridges and walkways so that your cat can truly feel like the master of its domain.
Two professional engineers and cat enthusiasts, Paul and TJ, have done an extensive series of experiments on the behavior of cats and created this humorous video to share their findings. This clip is the second installment of an engineer's effort to share with the public a greater understanding of our feline companions.
Cats are known to be independent and aloof. Though this is a well known fact, most cat owners would insist that they still have a very close bond with their feline counterparts. An experiment done by Professor Daniel Mills of the University of Lincoln has performed an experiment to settle the truth on whether your cat agree would agree.
