I thought after all the sadness it was time for a happier post. My husband Steve just got back from a trip to Japan and of course had to check out a cat cafe there. For 1000 yen an hour (about $12) you can go and get tea and sweets and hang out with the cats. This cafe had about 20 rescued cats all living there. They are very well cared for and there are rules about not bugging the cats who are sleeping or don't want to be bothered. Good thing I didn't go with him, I would have been there every day. Wish we had something like that here!
