Luckily we were in the most luxurious of all love motels we had stayed at. The country cottage themed, aptly named Toronto. We slept in, packed our bags wearily and then decided to get some lunch before we left for a yet undecided destination.
Bear with me here....
Here is the mother of all cat ladies. She does not speak human.
The cafe was extremely clean and the cats had a little private area to do their business, sleep and chill out.
Don't get me wrong, you won't see any of my kittens looking like this. But I'm sure this is one of the most loved cats in Korea. Everyday animal rights do not feature high on the list of priorities in Asia (war anyone?) and eating meat is considered a privilege to many people. Most people live in apartments so if you do have a pet it's probably a cat or a small dog and it's going to be cuted up to the max.
You are even provided the tools de-fur yourself on leaving.
We emerged, ahhhhhh, about FOUR HOURS later. To late to travel anywhere, we checked back into Motel Toronto. It was just fine with me!
