Moving onto the evening the cat cafe was a little disappointing. I was originally upbeat and excited to see some cats again, as it already felt like a long time since I’d seen mine back home. But it was basically what you’d expect from a cat cafe unfortunately: the cats don’t even like people. It was also very small and hard to find. But still, I think we’d do anything for cats. I absolutely love the amount of dogs here though. They’re also either really big or really small. There’s also a lot of Shiba Inu’s around here! (Native Japanese dog). I believe they just opened a brand new Shiba Inu cafe right around where we liven Causeway bay. I’d love to check that out and see whether it’s a lot better than the cat cafe or not.
Speaking of dogs, I’m also on the hunt for Foo Dogs at the moment! Originally I was gonna make this weekly blog series all about finding Foo Dogs in Hong Kong. But in all honesty they’re a little too abundant and I think I would miss a lot of interesting stuff if I only talked about Foo Dogs I saw. So what are Foo Dogs? They’re Chinese guardian Lions, usually made of some form of stone and placed outside for protection. I believe they only started being called Foo Dogs because they resembled some of the common small dogs you see in China. They can be found in pretty much any touristy shop, but range in size, material and style all throughout the city! Their placement and orientation is also important depending on the gender of each statue. I really wanted to buy one to build a 3D model of it for an extra project of mine, but unfortunately they’re pretty expensive here.
