But it is true, I get excited about all kinds of things. Fashion, stupid internet memes, food, nerdy science things, make-up and other girly things, architecture, outer space....who even knows what else I may like?! Me, that's who. Also you, if you read this blog.
Oh, and I especially like cats. Cats cats cats! I am only twenty-one but I am already a crazy-ass cat lady. I'm pursuing a career as a bioengineering researcher, but you know what? If I could pick ANYTHING in the world to do without having to worry about money or feasibility or other dumb realistic stuff like that, I would start a CAT PATISSERIE. Like a cat cafe, but a patisserie instead of a cafe. You do not know of cat cafes, you say? Well you should. And you will now, because I like them.
Cat cafes are cafes full of cats. No joke. They mostly only exist in Japan, where they are called neko cafe. You pay a fee (usually pretty small) to get in, and after you wash your hands and take off your shoes and whatnot, it is time to play with kitties! Kitties that are just wandering around the cafe!! That is crazy and awesome. Smaller cafes tend to have more around 5-10 cats, but the bigger ones can have 30+! (Although not all of them are out on the floor at once. Cats need days off from work too, you know!)
The banner above is from the website of the only cat cafe I've been to. It's called Calico Cat Cafe, and it is one of the biggest - if not THE biggest - neko cafe. They have two locations: one in Shinjuku and one in Kichijouji (both of which are in Tokyo). I went to the Shinjuku location, which is the larger of the two, and let me tell you: it was awesome. So awesome. Also you get a little booklet that tells you the name, breed, age, birthday and weight (how rude!) of all the cats, along with a little photo to help you identify which is which. So that's pretty cool. And I like things that are pretty cool.

And now I have told you about something I like. Hurrah! Stay tuned for even more things that I like.
