From cat cafes to cat’s only wine Japan has a soft spot for their feline friends, so of course they had to do it big for Cat Day. February 22 a.k.a “Cat Day” is an unofficial holiday for cat lovers to celebrate and pamper their pets but this year owners can get in on the festivities.
Hosted by Restaurant Mon Petit, also known as Fancy Feast here in the states, will be serving up a menu that looks like your furry companions favorites. Patrons will be welcomed by a kitty maître d’ and a set of their own cat ears to wear as they get ushered to their table. In between courses cat lovers can enjoy some cat-ivities such as an interactive kinect-esque motion capture that turns you into a digital feline. Meow.
The menu is French inspired created by Chef Phillipe Batton. Dishes include recreations of actual Mon Petit products: Turkey Terrine (that looks like it’s fresh outta the can), tuna with bonito flakes, creamy seafood soup, chicken breast cooked in thick broth, grilled beef and seafood, a chicken turkey snack dish complete with cat treat looking croutons and creme brûlée for dessert. At first glance the majority of the dishes definitely look similar to their kitty counterparts but hopefully they taste much better.
Sadly the restaurant isn’t open to the public, only 175 lucky patrons will have the change to indulge in this free dinner. Check out more photos of the dishes below:
