Cat Cafes! Ohio and Michigan

Date: Sunday, August 18, 2019
Time: 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Ohio
Location: AffoGATO Cat Cafe
Date: Sunday, August 18, 2019
Time: 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Let’s visiting cat cafés! Japan isn’t the only one with cat (and other animals) cafés! In fact, there are at least seven between Ohio and Michigan. Who’s up for visiting some kitties?! (Sorry, everyone. The cat pictured will not be available, as she currently lives with our Ohio Vice President.)

GLJETAA board members will be in Tiny Lions in Ann Arbor, and the Affogato Cat Cafe in Cleveland, and we would love for you to join us! However, we want to make sure this event is available to more people. We are trying to get more geosynchronous events going, so the below list also has two more cat cafes in the Buckeye and Wolverine State that have been proposed.

Important things to note are that each location has different policies, but they all strongly recommend reservations. They do allow walk-ins, though. They all have different fees, but they have one-hour options, which is what we remember from my days visiting nekos in Nihon. 

See you there!
