Cat Cafe Opens in New York City for a Limited Time

New York is the latest city to embrace the cat cafe, following Vienna, San Francisco, London, Seoul, and Singapore. Just doesn’t seem fair that we don’t have one in Dallas yet, but I guess we’ll just have to be patient. In the meantime, denizens of the Big Apple can enjoy this purr-fect treat for a limited time–it’s only around for four days!

 

The Purina One pop-up Cat Cafe can be found at 168 Bowery, and features cat’achinos, pastries, and adorable kitties that you can adopt on the spot from the North Shore Animal League. The best part is that the food and drinks are free! Ok, well maybe the best part is the cats, but free food and drink is a very, very close second. They’ll even put kitty latte/foam art on your drinks!

 

We know a few anime characters who would go crazy for a cat cafe. Like Al from Fullmetal Alchemist and Sebastian from Black Butler. How would you like a cat cafe where Sebastian served you drinks?

Want a Black Butler Visa Card?

 

Unless you’re Jessica Simpson, or just make/spend as much as her, chances are you’re probably not carrying around an AmEx Black Card. But, at least people with accounts at Sumitomo Mitsui (a Japanese bank based in Yurakucho, Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan) can get a Black Butler card!

 

This special Visa card has an exclusive image of Sebastian drawn by Yana Toboso, the mangaka for the series. This promotion is a special collaboration with the Black Butler II anime series and enrollment is limited to the first 1,000 qualified applicants with an annual fee of ¥1,250.

 

We know quite a few Black Butler fans who’d give their right eye to get one of these cards.
