An employee sprayed (sanitizer) our hands and told us how to pet them and the DON’Ts .
This is the owl that Ron Weasley owned in the Harry Potter films.
Pet like this. Do not touch their lower body as instructed.
Some are still not accustomed to be touched (they got a “Beginner. Please don’t touch” sign).
He’s OK to have on your hand. Ask staff for assistance.
Harry Potter’s owl!
Staring at me…
I figured that birds are hard to read their mind. Some of them looked very upset (sensed by their facial expression) but actually they wouldn’t mind being petted. Hmm. We just gotta try and see if they are really OK. It’s just a little tough especially for big ones. They are quite intimidating…
OK, let’s call it a day.

HI there! It’s Mr Wada back on duty. Do you know what cat cafe is? That’s where well-trained cat waters/waitresses serve you with heart…….believe or not. Why don’t we go investigate? There is one in Toiyacho, Okayama City.
Blue Cat Cafe in Toiyacho
Blue Cat Cafe is just a block away from maimai cafe or Ryugi cafe, with a huge sign of blue cat. To be frank I’d be against the whole animal cafe business because it just sounds silly to me. However, I learned that at least cats at this store are from the animal shelter (apparently it applies to many places) and looking for new owners. So you can go see and if you like them, you could adapt one(s). Hey I like that idea and system. Moreover, extra fee for the cat room goes to their food. Sounds perfectly great to me. Anyway I still need to see them.
Here we are. We’ve got to pay for drink first and also need to tell staff if you want to go into the cat room or not. Staff asks you if you would like to have your drink etc before or after going into the cat room because we are allowed to enter it ONLY ONCE.
My drink (orange juice). Drank up in a min and headed to where the kitties are…..
The staff sprayed hands sanitizer and explained DON’Ts etc. You could leave your stuff in lockers as well before the entrance door. Grab cat toys and go play with cats! It seems the key is on how to get their attention but they are so used to humans in here! I totally failed.
