Do you really want a pet, but you can't have one? Maybe your sister's got allergies, you live in an apartment that doesn't allow pets, or maybe you're just a little to young to handle one yet. That's all okay, because now you can visit a cat cafe! What is that, you ask? It's a cool new kind of coffee shop where you can get a snack and have a chance to hang out with some furry friends!
It's a lot of fun to go, and you can even adopt a kitty at some of these cafes!
The first cat cafe opened in Taiwan in 1998, and it took a long time all the way to 2014 before the first came to North America. There's not a lot of them yet, but maybe there's one near you!
