A cat café is a café where people can come see cats. The first cat café opens in Taiwan in 1998. Cat cafés become very popular in Asia.
Gato Café opens in June this year. It is in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Giovanna Molinaro is the founder of the café. People drink coffee with pictures of cats. They buy biscuits which look like a cat´s foot, too.
The cats stay in another room. They lie around and relax. The Gato Café is a place for abandoned cats and dogs, too. Abandoned animals do not have an owner. They must look after themselves.
Millions of cats and dogs are in Brazil. Many families have problems during the coronavirus. They cannot look after their pets. Many animals end up in the streets when their owners die.
