Tokyo’s Cat Cafes: Patrons Pay To Sip Tea And Stroke Resident Cats

by Accidental Bear

This might threaten to take the cat lady out of her house, cat cafes, who knew? Their origin is in Japan, which makes perfect sense with the popularity of Hello kitty there. No, cats are not on the menu at cat cafes, but they inhabit these cafes. “In an increasingly childless and aging nation, cat cafes fill a void. The more fortunate Japanese are the middle-aged couples who cradle Dachshunds like grandchildren at car dealerships and the young women who hand feed their Maltese puppies on park benches. For those who live with long work hours, no-pet apartments and work-related travel, there are cat cafes.” -AB

TOKYO — I followed the instructions of the watchful cashier and took off my shoes, sanitized my hands, placed my bag in a locker and dangled an ID card (“customer #18”) from a lanyard around my neck. The cashier then gave me a once over and a shallow bow, and I padded quietly into the sitting room of the cafe.

“She’s the prettiest girl we have at our cafe. Everybody wants to touch her, but we ask that customers only do so if she doesn’t resist you,” a waitress told me.

She didn’t resist. And since I was paying for the privilege, I leaned in and stroked her cheek. She was as lovely as the waitress had promised: a big-eyed, silky soft, compliant 2-year-old Russian Blue cat.

I was at Calico, one of Tokyo’s increasingly popular cat cafes, where customers seeking human and feline companionship pay to sip tea and stroke one of the 20-odd resident cats, representing 17 different breeds. READ MORE

Bad Kitty Kitty , Bad Klepto Kitty ( caught on video)

by Accidental Bear

I am a big fan of the feline. I have 2 of my own that I’m extremely attached to ( i’ll cut you!). They like to hide piles of things including paper clips, pencils. dollars and scraps of paper under the kitchen rug. But this kitty named Dusty from the other side of the tracks, San Mateo, takes it to another level. Bad kitty kitty, those are undies not yours! You will NOT be coming over for kitty sleep over!

Extra! Cat Burglar Story Legitimized by NPR.org Users! (Yes there’s video)

I foolishly passed on this story a couple of days ago, only to find that it is now the most e-mailed web item on NPR.org.

So here ya go, everyone:

The famous KGO “cat burglar” video, about a San Mateo cat named Dusty who steals things.

And since I’m turning this into an enterprise story, here’s the original segment on Dusty from the show Animal Planet:

Bruno and Solomon 2 GAY Kitties Will Marry

by Accidental Bear

A SPECIAL BOND RECOGNIZED

January 14, 2011, 11:39AM MT
By Dorothy Scanlan, Best Friends Network volunteer
Public invited to attend January 20 celebration to recognize Bruno and Solomon’s ceremony

Sometimes, a relationship is so very special that it must be recognized in some way. Such is the case with Bruno and Solomon, two resident cats at Ollie’s Place in New York City.

Ollie’s Place, in the heart of Manhattan, was founded in 2004. According to its literature, Ollie’s Place was a first in its type of rescue and adoption. The cat adoption center allows people to interact with the cats in a cage-free environment enabling the cats to be more socialized and potential adopters to establish a relationship. In any given month, Ollie’s Place is home to twenty to 25 cats. Most of the cats are rescued ferals, also known as community cats, but some have been surrendered by their people. The need to rescue homeless cats is always great, so they are searching for a larger space so they can accommodate more.

Bruno and Solomon (pictured) are two of the center’s long-term residents. They moved into the same little apartment at Ollie’s Place several years ago after a rough period of homelessness. They originally met on Coney Island.

“Bruno, a shy and timid gray and white tabby, bonded with Solomon, a ginger and white alpha male who has acted as Bruno’s protector and confident,” writes volunteer Kat Herskovits. “Solomon would have been adopted years ago as his outgoing and affectionate ways charm everyone he meets. But Solomon and Bruno’s mutual caring and affection has made it difficult, if not impossible, for them to be separated.”

Herskovits, who works for an Internet marketing company, volunteers every Wednesday evening at Ollie’s Place.

Volunteers play with and socialize the cats. Her favorite stories are those where she has witnessed cats “develop and blossom.” Her reward is the “person who sees them for who they are and for what they were meant to be.”

“Bruno and Solomon showed up at about the same time,” Herskovits said. “Bruno was shy, quiet, and afraid. Solomon was outgoing, and he started protecting Bruno. They instantly bonded in a way that was unusual. It is a beautiful thing to see.”

“Everyone was worried that Solomon would be adopted first,” Herskovits continued. And everyone knew that these two cats must be placed together.

That’s when the staff and volunteers of Ollie’s Place decided to make Bruno & Solomon’s relationship permanent. So, on January 20, 2011, Bruno and Solomon “will be joined forever in a feline marriage ceremony.” The ceremony will be private. However, this happy event is meant to be shared.

Hipster Cat

by Accidental Bear

Oh look it’s Mr. Kitty. He’s a hipcat. Hip to the youknow and the don’tknow and you’ve probably never even thought of the noises he likes to listen to when he isn’t having his picture taken. I don’t know who took this picture of Mr. Kitty, but I found it on Piccsy and oh my God I’m making this my wallpaper. This is the kinda cat that would have a dear pet fish in a bowl. He likes it because it’s ironic. Cats. Hipsters. Obscure music. Irony.

(EDIT: I have been informed that all credit for the photo of Mr. Kitty should be directed here)
