I’ve read about pet cafés featuring cats and have wondered if going to one would really be such a nice experience no matter how cute the featured pets may be. Somehow, I can’t seem to reconcile food and furry creatures running around in one small area, especially when pets are now banned from food establishments in certain areas in the south. Moreover, even if I, myself, am a pet owner and used to bring our Boston terrier Quinn with us when dining at certain restaurants, I do not relish the thought of finding pet hair on my food or drinks. (I guess that must be one of the reasons such city ordinance has been enforced.) To satisfy my curiosity, however, Big ‘n Lil Sis and I visited the first and only pet café in San Pedro, Laguna: Pet Lovers Café.
The first thing I looked for when we entered Pet Lovers Café was their pets, of course. There was a small fenced area where a Yorkshire terrier was sitting quietly, and this was the first thing I noticed upon entering. A group of students nearby was crowding on a Shih Tzu, while a pomeranian was standing on a stool by the counter.
