A shop dedicated to all things CAT
If there ever were a shop of my dreams, this would be it. As a huge fan of cats, getting to go into a store where everything was cat-themed or had the face of a cat plastered on it was amazing--especially in Moegi no Mura, a village more known for its dog-friendly policies. At specialty stores, one normally expects the price to be quite high. After all, the goods were all curated. Surprisingly, many things in Le Chat des Bois were reasonably priced. There were some handmade items with a high asking price, but for the most part, I could afford everything in there without much worry. The goods ranged from kitchen supplies to accessories to clothing. Almost anything you could imagine, they had a cat-themed version of it. I had to resist the urge to buy so many times. In the end, I picked up a keychain of a cat playing with a camera as a souvenir for a friend, and bought a matching enamel pin with the girlfriends I was visiting with that day. Both were great purchases, in my opinion.
