Japanese Rabbit Cafes

The Japanese have the right idea.  A cafe where bunnies are the main attraction instead of an entree.  The cafes are popular in Japan and a Canadian newspaper included a quiz asking readers if they thought a "rabbit cafe" would be a place they would visit.  Almost half of the respondents said, "yes" to spending time with rabbits while enjoying a cup of coffee.  This might be paws for thought for rabbit rescue organizations since people are interested in  pastry and coffee while they bond with a rabbit. Studies indicate rabbits descrease stress in women and girls particularly.  It would be a nice break from the office, too.  No rabbits named "Stew" at these cafes, just hoppy times. Link to article and video
