Chiyoda Nyan To Naru Café is a special place where rescued cats recover and transition into a life with warm human interactions and develop deep connections with humans.
For the last decade, continuous neutering and spaying of stray cats significantly reduced kittens requiring rescue due to over breeding-more importantly, not a single cat has been euthanized.
Unfortunately, large scale re-development of land in the central business district-Tokyo Station, Marunouchi, Akihabara, and other related areas-are condensing, shrinking living spaces for cats, creating a precarious environment which threatens the cat's welfare. Both kittens and adult cats are now being recused from these areas.
As a standard practice, these newly rescued cats will be given all the required vaccinations, be dewormed and be neutered or spayed. Once this process is complete, finding a family to adopt both the kittens and adult cats are the next steps. However, some of these recently rescued cats have never been accustomed to human interaction, therefore, hide and/or remain out of reach by climbing to the top of a kitty tower.
Chiyoda Nyan To Naru Café represents a unique concept addressing the transition period for these newly rescued cats. Unlike other "cat cafes" (where the primary theme and draw centers on the patrons' touching and petting the cats), Chiyoda Nyan To Naru Café offers its visitors a calming, relaxing atmosphere, where the newly rescued cats are allowed to slowly transition to their new, human world in a safe, open space--resembling a traditional, old Japanese house. Like other cafes, when the cats are ready, the café visitors are welcome to touch and pet the cats. However, the primary attraction for the patrons is being in the presence of the cats and enjoying the calming, relaxing environment, where the cats can be cats.
For parties interested in adopting a cat, please apply the day of the visit; though you won't be allowed to take home the cat the same day. We appreciate your understanding.
