A Russian cafe is offering customers the chance to enjoy a hot drink while playing with their feline residents. Visitors can play with the furry animals at the cats art cafe Cats Republic in St. Petersburg.
The owners currently have eight residents – four of them came from the State Hermitage Museum, where they used to hunt mice. The other four are purebreds acquired from breeders.
The cafe, which is popular with children and adults alike, measures visitors with a ‘cat-metre’ as well as calculating tier age in ‘cat years.’ The main rule of the cat cafe is that visitors should not try and interact or pet a cat if they seem unwilling to engage.
