Cafés are public places where people can go for a snack, tea, coffee, wine, and other drinks. But have you wanted to own a cat café? Most people keep cats for various reasons, e.g., to keep away destructive animals like rats and snakes, whereas others prefer cats just as pets.

There are those that charge guests for the drinks and some offer drinks free of charge, as long they pay a reservation fee.
