Cat cafes actually started in Taipei!

15 Apr

I had read that cat cafes were  popular in Japan and assumed the idea originated there. But according to this BBC article, “the the first cat café, named Cat Flower Garden, opened in Taipei, Taiwan in 1998”. This must refer to Cafe Dog and Cats 貓花園 (literal translation ‘cat flower garden’).
