cutest idea ever- cat brothels!

Have you ever heard of a cat brothel? It might be the best idea ever! Cat brothels, only in Japan as far as I know, are basically coffee or tea shops with a bunch of kitties to pet. Visitors pay a small fee to interact with the kitties as much as they like. They can also purchase treats for the cats, which of course make them much more favorable with the kitties. In addition, patrons can purchase beverages like teas and coffees to enjoy as they sit and pet the cute cats.

Apparently these cat brothels can be found in Japan and I fully intend on visiting one when i finally make it there! And maybe I'll open one myself someday!
