Meet the cats from Néko Café, a cat bar located in Grenoble city center. It was our first time in such place and we love it (we have a cat at home named Whitney, so yes, we love cats). Going there requires a minimum of precautions. First, there are two doors that separate the café from the street, a sort of safe measure to avoid an escape. Then, as soon as you sit, they will give you some hand sanitizer, whether you pet the cats or not. On the table, you will find some basic rules, such as not feeding the cats, not making loud noise, etc.

At Néko Café, they have five cats: 

Marcel, a Sphynx, totally hairless but quite soft, looking like Gollum in Lord of the Rings:

Noé, a turc de van, who stayed most of the time at our table (or shall I say: WE sat at his table):

There, we enjoyed some drinks, not being hungry at all as we had a big meal. Jodi went for a chocolat viennois (hot chocolate with whipped cream):

And I went for a cold latte macchiato:

This was a relaxing time, the cats playing with customers. It is a nice concept that pet lovers would surely like. For sure it is better than the rat cafe that is opening in San Francisco... 

enjoy (I did)!
