Cat Cafe ( 고양이 다락방 ) ….. Kitty Kitty !!!!

Cat Cafe

Hello Cat !!

Raise your hand if you are an animal lover!! Raise your hand if you love cats!! Raise your hands if you are a twilight fan !! Raise your hands if you are a House of
Night fan!! Raise your hands if you can meow!! . You got it , this blog of mine is about a cat cafe that i visited with one of my closest in Seoul last week . I never
heard of such an awesome concept ever before in my life , though i was always a cat fan and all into its association with darkness and vampires . Yes you read it
correctly a cat cafe house . A cat coffee house quite popular and with many in Seoul , is a regular coffee shop that you visited before but this time with all breeds
of cats roaming freely along-with . I belong to a place where cats are bad omens to keep in houses , though am not a big fan of this stereotype , in fact just an
opposite kind cat lover . Touching the cat the first time gave me like goosebumps , and soon my fingers were lost in the silky fur . So , this place i visited ,
charges 8000 KRW(Korean Won) which would be similar at most of the places which includes the entry , price for one drink(coffee of-course) , no restrictions on the time you sit there and of-course the awesome opportunity to play with cats .You can simply browse it with the keyword “animal cafe ” or “cat cafe” in Korea or precisely 고양이 다락방 .The one i mentioned is in Gangnam , very close to the famous Gangnam Bus Terminal ,though there are many more.

That was the most closest i have ever been to a  cat ;)

To make you go live in your imaginations while you are hugging your heart shaped pillow or cuddling while reading this , you are asked to wash your hands with a special liquid soap and take off the shoes(don’t worry you will get a slipper) before you enter this place. Once you are inside , there is a counter where you can order a drink. You are given a set of do’s and don’ts written in Korean while you are waiting for your order . Though the instructions translated by the helper there
(no worries if you are with a Korean friend , like in my case) are quite sane and common unless you are not crazy to an extent where you start acting like a cat
yourself ( just kidding lol …. ) .

All ready for a photoshoot !!

Here are a few that i remember – :

1. You are not supposed to pat the cat too hard ( make sure its alive when it leaves you )
2. If a cat comes to you , and tries sitting on you , call the helper if you don’t want it (don’t just throw the cat away like a paper ball )
3. Never disturb a cat when it is eating ( imagine how it feels when someone runs away with your coffee drink )
4. Don’t lift the cat if they are sleeping ( remember how we all hate our morning alarm clocks !!)
5. Don’t feed the cats ( though some just start sipping your coffee by themselves )
6. Don’t roll on the floor ( remember you were the “Human” , not the “Cat” !!)

Cats !! Cats !!

Cats !! Cats !!

Anyways enough of the instructions and lets start playing with the cats . Honestly , i never imagined cats to be so many different breeds and types . When most of you are sitting and chatting with your friends ( if supposedly) , this silky fur creature jumps on you and sits on your laps . You might also be lucky to have a group of them approaching you asking for affection and love . In my case , it was more than just sitting on my laps , one of them climbed my shoulders and sat on my hoodie and slept  .I read in one of my favorite vampire novels , that the cat chooses its own , which i witnessed when i went to this place . All are not lucky to have cats loved them ( though in my case it was overly flowing love  ) , you are given cat food to feed them after some time by the helpers , and then you have many cats surrounding you in groups , some climbing you , some snatching the meal( kidding , they were seriously trained and decent) , some cuddling your legs .In all it was an unforgettable memory and i wish you all many more awesomeness and memories the next time you get to visit there .
