The curfew is among revisions to the Animal Protection Law and designed to safeguard the welfare of all pets, but was particularly targeted at stores in busy entertainment districts that have been doing a roaring late-night trade in cute puppies and kittens among people who have had too much to drink.

My daughter is starting her second year of teaching English in Japan. One of the first trips to Tokyo that she took, she went to a “cat cafe”. She had a fun time. It is basically for people who do not have a pet, but would like to spend some time with a pet. So, the cat cafe.

One of the many great pleasures of living in the US is not having to live in an apartment that’s not much larger than a prison cell. I
have a 2 acre place in far SW Knox Co., TN. That allows me to be owned by a 10 lb. cat, an 85 lb. Pitador and a 102 lb. Great Dane. Couldn’t do that in Japan without being worth 10 or 20 times what I am.

Knowing the great pleasure I get from my one cat and two BIG dogs, I can only feel sorry for the poor Japanese who just don’t have the space to live that way.

I think that I might enjoy some things about living in Japan. America is sure beginning to suck.

Do you pay money to go in and pet the cats? Or is that just a (free) customer getter?

So...

in America, when you drink a lot, you get a $h!t-face.
in Japan, when you drink a lot, you get a Shih-Tzu.

This dick used to go to a cat cafe.
 
 
 
 
What WAS the name of that cafe? Hmmm. I'm drawing a blank here.

I think she may have had to pay to go into the cafe. I’m not entirely sure, it’s been about a year since she told us about it; but, I think there is a fee.
