Here is a nice kitty that my human met in the streets of Washington, DC, in the Eastern Market district. The district is rather residential, with houses with nice gardens.
My human reports:
The kitty was sitting on the sidewalk, just looking around. She had a collar and seemed to be familiar with the practice of monitoring what was going on in the street. I thought I would try to pet her, of course, when I saw a man walking a dog on his way to the cat. The dog started barking at the kitty that quickly got behind the bars of a garden, and hissed at the dog from behind the bars, where the dog couldn’t reach her.
When the dog was gone, the kitty responded to my calling her. She came out of the garden, and since I squatted down to be able to pet her, she jumped on my lap, settled down, and started to purr.
I won’t comment on that. I could do that too human, if you were here with me.
I had to leave for I was awaited, but this kitty seemed to know that a kitty’s purring would be much appreciated!
We’re very good at at, aren’t we? Now come back home, human.
My human, not content with spending those days away from me, has chosen to go to the new DC cat cafe for her birthday yesterday.
The good part though is that she could report to me on the cat cafe.
Overall, my human really liked the cafe. There are two floors and about 20 cats going about their business, letting clients pet them – or not. They are also all for adoption, so the cats in the cafe, hopefully for them, will change as they get adopted. You just have to book the time when you want to come online, and then come, have some coffee or tea and be
a slave nice to those kitties.
The cafe seems to be successful as it was packed at 9 am on Saturday. She said the humans who worked there were very nice too and obviously love cats.
I think it’s a great idea to help cats and humans know each other better and to get some homeless kitties a home and a better chance for adoption as the humans can freely play with them.
If you think about it, these kitties have dozens of servants all the time. I wonder if one of them would be a better typist than my human…?
You can find more pictures on my human’s blog too, here (yes, because she had the nerve to keep some for her blog!).
What do you think about cat cafes? Have you visited one before?
