It turned out that the businessman gave the authorities false information about the health of “working” in a cafe of cats when applying for permission to keep animals in a cafe for their communication with visitors.
Further investigation revealed that the café owner didn’t care properly about the health of their mentees and, in particular, did his analysis on a toxoplasmosis — a disease dangerous to animals and people.
As a result, Tana demanded to immediately close the facility and remove all animals. The case was then referred to the police, which led eventually to criminal punishment for men.
The concept of cafés where visitors in order to relaxation can communicate with cats and cats of different breeds and colors, first appeared in Japan. Subsequently, these institutions began to open in South East Asia, and then worldwide.
