In Osaka, there's a place called Hukulou Coffee, with owls and cats and haunted hats, and a couple of young friends named Marimo and Fuku.

Aw. The adult cat licking the owl in the pinned tweet looks a great deal like the kitten Marimo sleeping with Fuku in the last link. Coincidence? I think not.

They both look really happy, which is what I like to see. There's an owl cafe in my prefecture and I love love love owls but still haven't been because they proactively sell owls as pets and because I can't be 100% sure they're not a stressful environment.

Cats making friends with other species (including humans) is just so incredibly cute. It always makes me wonder what exactly is going on in that little cat head, though. What is the cat thinking? Do they actually recognize the owl as another species, or is it the same as if it were another cat?

So many questions...

There is. A place. In Osaka.
They call the Hukulou.
AND IT'S BEEN the ruin of many a work day
To watch cats. That are. So cute.

There are quite a few "cat and owl" videos on Youtube; I think this is the first one I saw.

Vaguely related: Meowl.

Also, this is missing the "interspecies snorgling" tag.

So sweet! All that's missing is the beautiful pea-green boat.

I have no desire to go to work now (not that I didn't already)

I just want to stay in bed all day looking at pictures of owls and cats snuggling

My cat was once on the railing of the deck, looking up into the nearby tree branches with that fascinated prey-seeking look; I followed her gaze, and saw there a huge owl, looking down at her about the same way. I grabbed her and went back inside with a quickness.

I had at least two cats eaten by owls growing up, so can only assume this is a sin against nature.

Cutest thing I've ever seen tho.

‘Nuff said. This ain’t cute.

Owls are NOT social animals. They do NOT like confined spaces or noise. They do NOT make good pets.

Animal cruelty is NOT cute.

Note that this was referring to a different place. The Hukulou Coffee has one owl, Fuku. They will not sell Fuku.

This cat cafe three floors with eleven cats,one owl,one dog,one lizard, and one tortoise.

Note that the pictures of Marimo and Fuku were taken three years ago. Here are some pictures taken yesterday.
