Cuteporter Dorobozaru O. is determined to visit every Cat Café in The Big J, and we’re totally fine with that. A few days ago we saw Neko Café Tango in Kyoto. This next bunch of photos are from Neko Café TiME, also in Kyoto. The two places aren’t related- Neko just means “cat.”
“It’s very close to Fushimi Inari Taisha, a shrine famous for having a LOT of red torii (gates.) This café is fairly new, it just opened in the summer. The best part, the kitties are all rescues!”
“They were either rescued from the street or adopted from shelters. For this reason, they are a little shy, but they’re being socialized in a wonderful way. The cost is quite reasonable, 1080yen/60 minutes, but you can choose more or less time too.”
“Handy tip, visit during the colder months and there will be a Kotatsu with many snuggly kitties sleeping under it. For those who don’t know, a Kotatsu is a table with a heater on the underside and a thick blanket under the tabletop that keeps your legs and kittens warm in winter.” [*Note- I want one of these. -Ed.]
“PS; The grumpy looking lady is named Momo (Peach,) the yawning tabby kitten is Kinako, the beauty with the black nose is Choco, and the fellow in the tux is Bob (the only gentleman on the premises at the current moment.)”
