For many people, a local café is a second home, a place to relax with friends or tap out a personal masterpiece on a worn laptop. It must be good business sense, then, for owners to shower patrons with warm drinks, comfort food and a cozy atmosphere. What could be more cozy and comfortable, though, than a fuzzy, loveable cat? Very little, it turns out.

Undoubtedly, the first thing you’ll notice upon entering a cat-filled café is a mass of smiling customers. It might be unclear how many of these animals are properly registered therapy cats, but they are clearly doing some sterling work in lifting the moods of feline fans across Beijing.

Take a look at our favourite hangouts to get our fur-ball fix.

If your child is feeling disappointed at not being able to carry the cats at Lovely Time, then head over to this kitty home instead. Just five minutes away, this two-storey café mostly has younger cats, and generally much easier to handle for kids. The café also sells cat food (20RMB).

Currently one of Beijing's more popular cat cafes with several branches across the capital, it shouldn't come as a surprise that weekends can get packed with fellow paparazzi's chasing after these felines' attention and stolen shots. The Sanlitun branch houses 32 cats, although you'll only see 15 at a time. For those keen on feeding the little hosts, cat food is available at 12RMB a can.
