Science has proven that having a furry creature at home decreases stress and increases your positivity levels as well as productivity. It’s no wonder some offices in Japan and other parts of the world are adopting the idea of integrating “work pets” or “office mascots” at their work place (we wish ours was one of those). Who doesn’t like to have a pleasantly adorable animal by their side while you go about your day, but for those who happen to not have the privilege to own their own furry best friend, we have researched some great cafes that are animal-friendly and contain a bunch of charming creatures for you to pet and snuggle up with while you sip on tea and enjoy some delicious grub.
