Feeling stressed out? A visit to a cat café could help. Stroking a cat can have a calming effect, something that resourceful businesspeople in Asia have been exploiting for some time. The first cat café opened in Taiwan in 1998, and the trend continues. In Germany, cat cafés have opened in several cities, including Hamburg and Munich, allowing cat lovers to unwind by snuggling with a moggy. The cats in turn have their very own rest room. All very cat-friendly!
