    Good grief, what next an appeal for human cadavers?

    I wouldn't be surprised but then euthanasia isn't technically illegal in Denmark.

    Interesting headline underneath as well, Swiss looking to clarify their relationship with the EU

    Doh they feed them live? I haven't a particular problem with an animal that would live a miserable life of neglect or be put down anyway being quietly put to sleep and then fed to the lions.
    What I strenuously object to is the idea of a defenceless pet dying in terror and pain.
    What happens in the wild is Nature. Let's not pretend being in a zoo has anything to do with that.

    What a hideous and cruel idea.

    Here's another cat cafe which might be more to people's tastes:

    Budget cuts must be tight.

    You have to live with cats, dogs, birds etc to know that they trust you and love you in a way that human beings cannot. How awful it is when people betray their trust - and this must surely be one of the worst things you can do.

    I'm truly amazed as I thought that the law prohibited animals in public eating places. Why would anyone want to take a cat with them into a cafe? I could perhaps understand it with a dog as you could be out with your dog walking and want a drink etc. I usually went to cafes where you could sit at a table outside when I had my dog. Taking cats into a cafe doesn't quite make sense to me and such a cafe I, or many others, would avoid, even though I love cats and have had cats and dogs as pets.

    I love seeing cafes with signs up saying simply 'Pets welcome' Am SO seriously tempted to turn up with half a dozen pet chickens ;):p:D

    I think, and I may be wrong as I have never been and not looked into it enough, you don't take your cat, the cats are part of the fixtures and fittings.

    I have always wondered if those signs apply to pet rats :D

    The cats come with the cafe. You don't "bring your own". They have an airlock style door system in the out so no cats escape. I think most are rescue cats.
