    "Come for the Coffee, stay for the Cats !"

    Miau - Miau !

    Coffee is probably the best reason for aliens to come visit, the dark, bitter-sweet nectar is probably the best thing we have on this decaing planet, coffee is delicious, inclusive, and drinked all over, by everyone ! Judging by the cool avatars, many of our fellow AWESOME Community users sport, some are quite passionate about it.

    Cats are, probably the closest thing we have to aliens, also as you know, the Internet, is basically build by photos, videos, memes of them purring mischievous creatures, they also have a inexplicable link to coffee, probably because cat-owners are woken atleast once a night by random cat activity... I won't even touch on Kopi Luwak, mainly because of it's price :D

    Recently one of my favorite spots in the City was closed, it was one of those Cat Café House, a place where you could access both a good coffee and interact with the beautiful beasts. The atmosphere there was special, and the purpose of this thread is to recreate that, together, in a virtual way, wright here on our beloved forums... Real life is anyways overated !

    So fellow Coffee and Cat Lovers, Unite !

    The Rules of the Thread are simple, pour yourself a cup of your favorite coffee, come here, forget about everything else, close all tabs.... Relax, and while you enjoy your drink, scroll down through the endless stream of cat photos, videos, memes that we will build together, think of it as.. a positive Zen place, where you can recharge your batteries, both physicaly with the intake of the magical coffee and mentally, destressing while your brain is bombarded with the pure essence of cuteness...

    I encourage you to post (obviously, besides the already mentioned Cat photos, videos, memes) stuff related to Coffee culture, which is your favorite, do you own a special mug, where's your favorite place, do you have a secret recipe worth billions, etc etc etc

    This will hopefully be a FUN place so respect others, by respecting the forum rules

    Disclaimer: even if you may think I made this thread just to post pictures of Itzal, or to finally see @Cheetosdust's cat, this is not just another pet thread, we have quite a few of those and I encourage you to visit them:

    Take Care and, Just Chill !

    Ps: if bear BEER is more of your thing visit this great thread by another cat entusiast @LightningXIII , that amoung others things, like the private exchange of cat pictures with my cat's madrina @B.I.T.S. and others, influenced and inspired this one.

    Oh my! Cats and coffee, coffee and cats... And this just made me think about a friend's dog called Coffee, how inconveniently awkward :rolleyes:

    This is gonna be long, so I better go grab a coffee in my favorite mug (yes I do have one of those that was bought in Salzburg's Ikea and packed carefully in my bag when I returned home).

    Back then, in Salzburg, I was addicted to latte machiato since we had a heavenly tool to make extremely creamy milk. Then I added a bit of brown sugar, mostly for the cream, so when grabbing it with the spoon had the perfect crunchiness.

    After that I started adding honey to coffee with a bit of milk. It might sound weird but tastes great!

    I had a period where I drank coffee without any sweet element. But right now, along with my mid day pincho de tortilla I have what we call in Spain "café bombón" which is half coffee half condensed milk. If you haven't tried this... Well, don't. Or you'll be lost forever!

    Now... Cats. I must share this curious creepy thing. This web page: "I know where your cat lives". The creator of this site grabs internet photos and geolocates them in a world map. Funnily enough, there's a photo I shot years ago of a stray cat taking a sun bath. As I said... It is creepy :rolleyes:
    Be careful when you upload your photos my dear kids.

    Now, to end this looooooong message, I'll share one of my favorite street photos, that, curiously has a cat in it. And I want to think that its owner was having a coffee at that exact moment... :D


    Ah... I can feel this is just the start of a great interesting fun cute awesome thread. Well done my dear @Impersonal!!

    P.S. I also hope that this is where we finally meet @Cheetosdust cat, I've been wanting to see a photo of her since he mentioned he has one :rolleyes:

    Woww!! Thankyou for this thread!!! 😻😻 May the purr be with you.;)
    And I totalllllyyyy love the header pic!!! Meoww meowww! Thaaat eyes! Damn!! 😍😍

    And also, those animated shows reminded me of 'snowbell'. The pretty-but-evil kitty from the movie Stuart little (though not animated😋). Such a perfect catactor!:p

    My boooooo....lovely shot! That cat is soooo prettyyyy!!!😍😍😍😍😍 the owner is so lucky.😏

    I have a feeling that the cat might have got a sudden urge to pounce on that man and would have also plotted different ways to attack him at that very moment.🤣

    And yusssss, @Cheetosdust we want to see your not-orange-at-all gato (yes, I remember you told that your cat isn't orange like you:p)!!! We need his picture! We wanna be his friends!:p:cool:
    Thanks for getting me here, Tara! ;)

    RIP Tiger. Always loved.

    There is a cat cafe in Glasgow called Purple Cat Cafe, which seems pretty similar to the cafe you mention in your start post @Impersonal
