|Kitty, Don't Touch! Pew Pew|
An article on CNN's Travel blog states that a new trend in Japan is "Neko cafes." These cafes are special in that they allow you to pay for the privilege to hang out with cats. ("Neko" might mean "cat." I dunno, I nearly flunked Spanish.) According to the article, you may not wake a sleeping cat, nor may you pick up or pet a cat unless it rubs up on you, which in my experience is every living creature in a coffee shop.
