So...there are people in Japan who would pay to spend time with a cat? Where do I sign up? I know a cat who is open for bidness from 7am-6pm every day. She would be happy to entertain callers and you can make your own tea. Assorted flavors in the cupboard just above the stove. There's the kettle. That's not your thing --- well this should cheer you up. And if that doesn't work -- try this!
