[Seoul] ~ Hello Kitties at Hongdae

 A kill-time afternoon with those cats and a dog – 10.26.14

Hello Kitties

A round two at an animal cafe on my third day in Seoul. After some search around Hongdae for a cat cafe, finally found one that is right across the Hongdae Playground. I have not been to others so I could not compare how this one fares compare to others (as I believe there are more cat than dog cafes in the city) but it was quite an experience that I killed almost two hours just taking photos of these cute snobs.

Cat overload, indeed plus well – some of this adorable only dog resident whose existence when I asked the crew she oddly explained “I don’t know. The owner has a dog so he’s here.” Okay, I no longer know how to respond to that. Side story too of this only cat who approached me but after a few seconds, I found out it was only because she thought she could share my caffeine.

Or is this? Funny how for a few minutes, was wondering whether this is a cat or a dog.

~~~

IMG_8988

Weeee. (And I am making all these strange sounds)

Quick ‘playtime’ with this only friendly resident 

~~~

And I just envy this cat’s comfort

~~~

IMG_8994

From this angle though, he looks kind of sad

~~~

IMG_8996

This one just looks like his nostrils are getting bigger

~~~

IMG_8997

And this one looks like he/she is on alert mode.

This one looks ‘kind’ despite the green eyes

IMG_9010

Because for them, it’s all laze and play

Snooze away from up there

When from this angle, this cat looks ‘normal’

~~~

20141026_141251

… but I just love this black and white

~~~

A fun find at the cafe’s restroom. So it’s okay to smoke for others?

How to go to this cat cafe: 

(If I remember right, Y Cat Cafe is right across Hongdae Playground and on the second floor of a building.

Not mine but found this article you may find helpful if you want to visit a cat cafe.

There is no entrance fee but you must pay for at least one drink.

Guests are asked to leave their shoes upon entry and wear the cafe’s slippers. Bags must be kept on the locker as well.
