One Parisian Cafe Has Cats Accompany Customers

Posted: Updated:

Customers braving the lunchtime rush at Paris' newest cafe are now able to enjoy the scenery in the company of a dozen resident cats.

The "Cafe Des Chats'" in the heart of the capital's Chic Marais District is home to a dozen felines who weave in between the tables or curl up on armchairs as diners eat their salads and quiches.

The establishment is aimed at Parisians unable to keep pets in cramped apartments. The manager also tells Reuters that having cats around is great therapy. According to cafe manager Margaux Gandelon, purring produces vibrations which relieve arthritis and lower blood pressure and heartbeat.

The animals themselves are a motley crew of abandoned cats and strays adopted from shelters.

Already, some 300 people had to be turned away from the cafe because of its lines and bookings that have been filled until November.
