Paris Pet-Lovers Look To Cat Cafe

Posted: Jun. 27th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Well, as Paris is quickly discovering, there's some people you just cant satisfy. Cat lovers are getting a paradisaical new pet-friendly spot to catch a cup of coffee – an opportunity practically unheard of elsewhere – so naturally animal rights activists have taken offense. Some people just can't be happy.

Cafe-goers in France may soon have a new cat-friendly bistro to frequent. The proposed cat cafe in Paris would be a haven for kitty lovers who want to spend some quality time with felines, France's The Local reports.

However, not everyone is thrilled with the idea of a cafe that houses cats, and the plan has provoked the ire of animal rights activists in the country.

"What bothers me in this approach is that the animal would be restricted to the role of a teddy bear," Christophe Marie of the Brigitte Bardot Foundation told the Agence France-Presse.
