Although they are vicious serial killers who murder for pleasure and who enjoy to prolong their victims’ death struggles, although they never ever reciprocate the amounts of love you give to them, although they endanger local biodiversity and although they can infect humans with a parasite that turns us neurotic, schizophrenic and suicidal, I kinda like cats.
There is a considerable chance that you do too.
Some cats on the internet make millions of dollars. Felinity must be the most solid business model of the 21st century. That’s why Le chat touille, a small café near Louiza, has brought a concept that was already popular in Asia to Brussels. The business plan is as strong as it is simple: cats.
While you’re having a drink or a snack, you can watch cats fulfill their respiratory, nutritional, hygienic, resting or leisure needs. You can also pet them, play with them or ask them how things are going. You can even drink a local beer called ‘De Poes‘ (Dutch for ‘The Cat’).
One downside to Le chat touille: the economic law of supply and demand is at work too in the cat universe. Prices are rather expensive and sometimes there can even be a waiting line to get in.
Nevertheless, the philosophy of Le chat touille is very noble. All cats come from an animal shelter and only those cats that are fond of having people around get selected. And if the pussies find you too pushy, they can escape to a backroom.
