Yesterday we visited a Cat Café in Northern Toyko- today, we stay in The Big T for a trip to an Owl Café; not our first rodeo when it comes to these, either. Our narrator today is Stu, and as you can tell, he’s just a bit geeked up to be there. It’s called “Forest Of Owl; Healing & Adventure With The Owl Of The Good Luck.”
Well, of course it is. After all: #TheFutureIsOwls. [P.S. The entire country of Japan has now been inducted into the C.O. Hall of Fame. All of it, from Hokkaido to Okinawa. They DOMINATE the QTE. FYI. -Ed.]
UPDATE! We woke Stu up in Tokyo and got the info! Good grief do I love me some Twitter.

From The Land With The Coolest Toys Ever aka The Big J comes this set of….eight Hamsters that hang on the side of your drinking glass. These are known as “Gashapon, or Gachapon.” To review:
From Andrew Y. and RN24.
Got an update on the Mewgaroo Hoodie from earlier today. AB, Peanutcat, and debg expressed an interest in buying them- and it’ll cost ya. (Currency differences, y’know.) Anyway, C.O. reader AJ found a site that will ship to the U.S. Or try eBay. And we just got an email from Mio Kumagai from the PR team of BE-S Co.,Ltd. in Japan. They’re reading C.O. in The Big J.
We read your article on Cute Overload! Are you getting a lot of feedback from your readers? For your reference, we got thousands of pre-orders yesterday and now both sizes are out of stock! At the moment, unfortunately we do not handle the direct sales to oversea individuals, but if you really wish to get it you might want to check with the shops listed at the Market Place in Amazon Japan.
That’s the slogan on the back of the “Mewgaroo” hoodie, straight from the brilliant minds of The Big J. Stuff your kitteh in the front pouch for some portable snorgling- even has a removable liner (second photo below) to collect all the cat hair. We’re not sure why that person (first photo below) is hanging out of the dryer; remember this key concept: make sure your kitteh isn’t IN the hoodie when drying. (Also notice the CAT EARS ON the hoodie. They’ve done it again.)
Pretty much time to shut ‘er down for the week here at The Big C.O.- but as always, we’ll be up all night tonight -behind the scenes- plotting tomorrow morning’s QTE….like a new Maru, and something to do with Tortoises and—nope, can’t say anymore. But you’ll love eet. We leave for the night with the latest from Shiro And Friends, doing what they do best, blasting out that patented Mellow Shiro Zen Vibe.
In a bookcase.
Where would they ever think of such a thing? Ah, I see. Never mind. Go ahead, knock yourself out, fellas. It’s Caturday!
(Andrew Y. spotted this on RocketNews24.)
Maybe Ohagi likes her tea served with a….spot o’ The Nip?
Mimi is a BUN Café located in Ikebukuro, “a commercial and entertainment district in Toshima, Tokyo, Japan.” Robb S. wrote about Mimi on his site Animal Cafés.com, and sent us these images!
