Here Kitty, Kitty!
Vienna now has a cat cafe! It is called Neko and located in the heart of Vienna, the city center. So how do you imagine a cat cafe to be? I will answer you that because today I stopped by there, to see what this is all about and to take a couple of photos.
Basically it is a cafe that has at least five cats running around and pleasing the eye and heart of the visitors. The concept is that the cats are free to go from table to table and spend a little quality time with cat lovers. Every table has a little bait, for example a little toy mouse or a ball attached to a string and like that you’d be able to lure a cat to your table.
On this occasion I had to sport one of my favourite dresses – a Marc by Marc Jacobs panther print dress. I have been so crazy about this print that I had to get the tote from the same collection as well. I have been wearing both pieces a lot, but never together, as I was concerned it might be looking a bit overdone. But I think combined with the contrasting brogues it really makes a lovely and elegant outfit.
The interior of the cafe is modern and chic and of course adapted to the needs of to those who run this place: the cats! Some people were so fond of the furry friends that they tried to keep them at their table by all means. Seeing their excitement was really funny! The cats also have a place were they can retreat a little if life and people get too hectic for them. I contented myself with drinking coffee and watching the whole scenery.
You probably know by now the Flamboyante loves to accessorize…I updated my outfit with a cute statement hedgehog ring, drop earrings by Kevia and – another thing I got from the Marc Jacobs collections – a panther hair clip. Why am I so crazy about panthers? I’ll let you into a secret: I have a little panther tatoo I got in Paris when studying acting over there for a year. The tatoo artist was Tin Tin – anyone who is into tatoos knows he is a great artist. I would only get inked by a great artist, since I have to run around with this piece of art for the rest of my life.
Going for a cafe in a panther print dress being surrounded by beautiful cats – to me that is a purrrfect thing to do in Vienna. Do you have such an exciting place in your home town – an animal cafe? Maybe it is time for you to explore what your city offers to you….I am leaving you here for now with one more pussy cat inspiration and one more little information: Neko in Japanese means cat – are you surprised?
