Tokyo, Part 3 - Rabbit Cafe

One of the things I was most excited to do in Tokyo was visit a rabbit cafe.  There are several kinds of animal cafes, places where stressed out people can drink tea and play with some friendly creatures, in Tokyo.  We ended up at R.A.A.G.F. (Rabbit and Get Fat) and spent an hour playing with the bunnies. 

 

We had looked at owl cafes as well, but backed out as we felt bad for owls being kept awake during the day.  Bunnies are pretty domesticated already and we had strict rules not to pick them up or antagonize them.  This floof is taking some time in between play sessions.

 I'm stressed out by how happy I am here.

All of the rabbits at R.A.A.G.F. are up for adoption, and some had a pretty rough life before coming to the cafe.  This guy had some funny back legs and was missing some fur.  He was really friendly and liked to be pet in this very relaxed position.

Rabbits are constantly pooping.  Constantly.  Rabbit poop everywhere. A big upside to visiting a rabbit cafe (vs. owning a rabbit) is not having to pick any of it up.

 I smelled like rabbit for the rest of the day - worth it.
