Koneko is a cat cafe, located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City, that gives patrons the opportunity to enjoy a drink whilst interacting with furry little felines.

While cat cafes are slowly gaining in popularity, what's unique about this establishment is that you trade in coffees and teas for crisp, cold beers, indulgent wines and traditional sake. A price of $15 an hour gives you the opportunity to play with the cats, that are drawn from the Anjellicle Cats Rescue group's "at risk" list, meaning they are essentially rescued from being euthanized.

The Koneko cat cafe is a great way for the rescue group to promote awareness about its group in a way that's interactive and fun, and attracts the busy people of New York City rather than drive them away.
