Due to some rather interesting recent events, I have decided to stay in Thailand and not go back to the USA for the next, oh I don’t know, four to eight years give or take an impeachment. In order to earn money, I decided to look into opening a cat cafe. Although there are cat cafes all over Bangkok, there are none in my area. In addition, my neighborhood is full of unemployed soi cats so I set about recruiting and interviewing the best cats to work as baristas.
To my dismay, I found that almost all the cats are quite lazy, sleeping away most of the day. In order to be productive employees, they’d need to drink much of the coffee they were serving just to stay awake. That would put a dent in the profits.
I also found that many of the cats had bad attitudes and others had serious catnip addictions.
Some of the cats flopped over and demanded tummy rubs during the interview!
Many of the cats are monks and don’t need money or jobs.
I also found that the cats were easily distracted in interviews and not a single cat had opposable thumbs.
I’ve never been to a cat cafe so I’m not sure where they get barista cats but I can tell you that none in my neighborhood are qualified.
In the end, I decided against the cat cafe for now. Does anyone have any money making suggestions or should I seek a tropical island, fish for my food and just ride this out?
