One of the most ubiquitous sights in Seoul is the many coffee houses making business in this town. You have the major franchises like Starbucks and also many independent and unique coffee houses. Coffee houses that have unique theme are also numerous in Seoul like the Hello Kitty Coffee House featured before. But this time how about something less cartoonish and more I-will-leave-my-furs-on-your-clothes variant?

Cheongchun Cat Cafe / YCat Cafe (previously also known as Gio Cat Cafe) is a coffee house where the main spotlight is not on their brews of Caramel Macchiatto or Espresso, but the many cats it houses! Pay an entrance fee and you'll get a choice of drinks and allocation of table. Then you can do your best to tempt these furry buddies to get into your lap, pet and play with them. They even have a "cat menu" that showcases the many different breeds of cats they have. Check the sources for more info (and a video) (source 1, source 2, source 3)
