I went to Seoul this past weekend with one thing on my mind: pet cafes. Wow, that sentence sounds a bit crazy so maybe some explaining is in order. Pet cafes are not restaurants that specialize in serving various types of pets. (Sorry for the gruesome picture.) On the contrary, these are cafes that serve normal café fare, i.e. coffee, tea, and expresso drinks, while surrounded by friendly cats or dogs. In several locations throughout Seoul, one can find dog cafés, cat cafes, and fish cafés. (or so I had been told). I decided to spend an afternoon investigating whether these pet cafes were real and to see if I enjoyed drinking a cup of coffee while a pack of dogs ran around my feet.
