Calling all cat lovers! Australia's first cat cafe is set to open in Melbourne.
Cat Cafes are becoming more and more popular around the world. The first cat cafe opened in Taiwan in 1998, and the trend has since spread to Japan, Vienna, Russia, Germany, China, Thailand, the UK, France, and more. And now Australia is set to open its claws .... we mean doors... very soon!
Cat Cafe Melbourne says it will offer a whole new social environment never before experienced in Australia. Sounds purrferct!
"We will provide a fun, comfortable, and most importantly, kitty filled space for you to relax and play with several lovely cats from rescue shelters. The cats will live at the premises, therefore they will have everything they could possibly ever need right at their paw-tips."
Cat Cafes offer a great solution to animal lovers in big cities who may not be allowed keep a furry friend in their rental property.
According to the cafe, it will work in a similar manner to Japanese cat cafes. There will be a $10/hour charge to enter the cat area to cover the felines' care. "The cats will be monitored at all times via cameras, day and night. And we will also have volunteers and staff walking around with the cats to keep an eye on things, answer questions, and keeping the kitties private room nice and clean".
The cat cafe is aiming to open in July 2014 and is currently looking for staff!
WE CAN'T WAIT!!
