Cat Café Heals the Soul With Love and Kindness

We opened a can of fish to feed the cats, and many of the cats rushed to the front to get a taste. Some of the slow-moving cats were left out, so they could only watch others enjoy the delicious fish. (Image: Jackson Chen)

A new cat-themed café has opened in Taiwan, where cat lovers can visit cats, sip coffee, and relax with these lovely animals.

The “Cat Artist” café in the Yonghe District of New Taipei City is a lively yet relaxing place. When I visited the café, I was busy with homework and essays and felt anxious. After I played with the cats and relaxed in the furniture, I discovered this place made me feel calm inside. After dealing with the stresses of modern life, going to this cat café was like a wanderer returning home to his family to receive warmth and comfort.

When I entered the café, I noticed it was full of active cats that can play freely on shelves and wooden structures. There are a lot of bright-colored objects for them to climb on, in shades of pink and blue. It’s very pretty!

Watch a cat leap straight up into the air at the cat café:

The hostess of the café is caring and lets every visitor feed the cats and interact with them. So you really get to pay attention to each cat and love them, and in turn, receive that love back. You get reminded of how to nurture another living creature, and it gives you a renewed sense of purpose. The perfect escape from city life?

After reading this article, are you inspired to go to Taiwan to visit this heart-warming café? Are you eager to feel its nurturing effect? Act now and experience it yourself!

I happily took pictures with my friend, but accidentally disturbed a sleeping cat. After waking up, he was so photogenic! (Image: Jackson Chen)

This little cat likes to sit in the A-shaped hole, and when you bring the dangly-toy toward him, he sticks out his cute little paw to grab it. (Image: Jackson Chen)

I also succeeded in taking pictures of cat’s jumping and landing in slow motion. They’re even more elegant like this, don’t you think? (Image: Jackson Chen)

 

Really rare! This cat nestled between my legs and his furry body leaned against me. I dared not move, so I asked my friend to take this precious photo for me. (Image: Jackson Chen)
