C.O. Cat Café World Tour: Kyoto, Japan IV

unnamed (5) Dorobozaru O. has most graciously taken C.O. readers on a Cat Café tour of Kyoto, in The Big J. (Click the links for Parts I, II, and III.) She tells us now about our fourth and final stop in that city. “Next up is Neko Café MaruMari. I’m not sure if ‘Marumari’ has a specific meaning, but if you look carefully in the café you will find a sweet little Scottish fold who answers to the name.

This cat café is in the northern part of Kyoto and is a bit trickier to get to. I had a friend take me who had been before. If you don’t mind a walk, it’s about 20 minutes from Koukusai-kaikan on the Kyoto subway line (it’s the very last stop going north.) There are other ways to get there, but the directions are entirely in Japanese.”

“The owner was very nice and a little shy, so I’d recommend bringing a Japanese friend to help you through the greetings. He does things a little different and writes down the time you arrived, you then keep track of your time and pay when you leave. It’s 200Y/15minutes, you can purchase some drinks from the owner- however, he does allow you to bring in your own snacks or drinks. Just don’t share anything with the kitties. He was very, very nice and gave us some kitty treats and cat grass to attract the residents. Usually at a cat café you pay 100-200Y for treats.”

“The space is beautiful, although not the coziest. There’s a great big window that looks out on to the river. It was very tempting to grab a kitty for a pillow and take a nap in the sunbeams.”

unnamed (3)
“Perhaps my favorite part of the visit was getting to choose a sort of collector’s card of one of the cats. Of course I choose Hime-chan (‘hime’ means ‘princess,’) who is possibly the most awkward and clumsy little princess I have ever met!”

Night Night There, Humphrey

Humphrey just…can’t…hang…anymore. It’s OK, little man- it’s late! Time to shut ‘er down. We’re back Thursday morning with more of The QTE, including Throwback Thursday, the C.O. Cat Café World Tour‘s final Kyoto stop, ResQte Of The Week, and more! (Like….HERMIT CRABS??)

“Hey Honey? Have You Seen Puck?”

FullSizeRender“I know he needs to go outside but since it’s been so cold out, he’s not really happy about that. Did you check the bedroom?”

(It’s cold here in Arkansas. Our 12 week old ResQte pup, Puck the Boxer, found a way to stay warm under the covers and still be able to breathe!” -Liz M.)

Let’s Go Undercover with the Kotatsu-Cam™!

(UPDATED 1/15 with new video!) Last week, we learned what a Kotatsu is. A Japanese table to sit down at, and it’s got a cover around it, and a heater built underneath. When you go to a Cat Café, some of them have these so you can fold your legs underneath in the winter months.

Now we get to see what goes ON under there, c/o Shiro And Friends.

Sammy The Snow Angel

Last post took us to Tiverton, Devon in England for Mango the cat, and now we head over just a weeee bit to Scotland. Cuteporter Emma writes, “We haven’t had decent snow in Scotland for quite some time. But today it happened! My Golden Retriever Sam rolled around like the crazy puppy, and then had a SQUIRREL! moment at the end. I took this video in the Alva Glen.”

Does TESCO Carry Mangoes?

Cuteporter Paul P. knows of one that does!

This cat named Mango visits its local Tesco supermarket (below) in the town of Tiverton, Devon in England, has suddenly become famous, in an internet sort of way, after being featured in several UK newspapers,” he says. “She has her own cat house in the entrance of the store (below,) and her store fans have created a Facebook page for her.”

I KNOW, I KNOW, Time For The Groomer

[Mwah mwah mwah. Fine, go ahead and set it up. But NOT with that LAST groomer. She took WAY too much off the top. And their complimentary dog biscuits were stale. And that nervous Chihuahua in the next stall over peed EVERYWHERE. Make the appointment somewhere else this time.] (Reddit.)
