Link farm[edit]

This article has become a link farm, with proprietors of individual cat cafés adding links to their establishments with no evidence of notability for those establishments. I propose to delete all material following the "History" section (i.e. all location-specific information listing individual cafés). Any objections? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:31, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Done. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 18:32, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

I have reverted recent additions of individual cat cafés in order to avoid reverting this article to a link farm. Unless a particular café is individually notable (i.e. would likely stand as a standalone Wikipedia article), it doesn't really merit mention in this article.

@Heatherhowell: Since you are somewhat insistent on adding this information without edit summary, which makes it impossible to know your intention, I will ask specifically why you believe this information belongs in this article? WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:13, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: 1.You mentioned an issue with the article on Cat Cafes; therefore instead of just deleting ppls work, I am fixing the issue brought up. Yes, I agree that the former version was very much a linkfarm with too many links. Cat Cafés are the topic and since the specific cat cafes mentioned do not have enough notability to warrant their own stand alone articles, this is where they belong. Please review WP:Notability regarding "Notability guidelines do not apply to content within an article" The links to every café do not belong, the information regarding the cafes does. References regarding the existence of the cafes/open dates/special features/etc. need to be included, though not to the extent that was initially included. Heatherhowell
@Heatherhowell: Unfortunately, the information you have added regarding cat cafés in Canada is not reliably sourced. The fact that the Café de Chats in Montreal was the "first cat café in Northern America" is referenced to their own website. The mention of individual cafés that do not meet any specific criteria for inclusion in the article (such as Café Chat L'Hereux, also sourced to its own website) is problematic. The first on in North America might be notable enough (if we could verify it); the rest have no particular claim to notability, and their inclusion opens the door for the mention of every cat café, returning us to a link farm. The mention of cafés that are planning on opening is even more problematic, opening the doors to all sorts of WP:CRYSTAL speculation. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:52, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
@WikiDan61: Café de Chats in Montreal is changed, both that and Café Chat L'Hereux should be the same,one reference. I thought I changed that. Thank you. The proposed cafes opening is relevant and can be referenced to one or two sources so they will not have too many link associated with the topic and cluttering up the article. Therefore, your concern with a link farm on this article looks to be resolved. Thanks again.Heatherhowell

This is turning into a link farm again. Individual cat cafes are adding themselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 154.58.67.113 (talk) 23:58, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

The continent headings are not encyclopedic and need to be removed. Unless someone can demonstrate why a list of most cat cafés around the world belongs in an encyclopedia I will remove them shortly. UKWikiGuy (talk) 21:42, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Restored some deleted content[edit]

Any sentence about a cafe that's cited by the cafe's website should be deleted. However, edits like this are not constructive; in that edit, two sentences containing wikilinks to reliably sourced Wikipedia articles on a specific cat cafes were deleted. Those, and many other cafes in that edit, are clearly notable enough to merit coverage in this article based upon the sources that cover them. Consequently, I've re-added the set of cafes from that edit that were deleted despite being cited by a WP:RS. In other sections of this article, there's still a number of sentences about cafes which lack a citation to a reliable source though. Seppi333 (Insert ) 07:53, 6 February 2018 (UTC)

History - 1st cafe in Japan[edit]

The introductory "History" paragraph seems a little confusing in that it presents 2 different cat cafes in Japan as being the first (in Japan), one in 2004, and one in 2005... --EzraJones (talk) 13:44, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Global/regional standards for Cat Cafes?[edit]

Hi guys, I wanted to contribute a bit of my time with more details about the legal background of cat cafes on a global scale. Are there any organizations which define a "code of conduct" for operating a cat cafe? As I understand most of the cafes have to respect the normal hygiene standards of the respective country and depending on the place need a license from a agriculture/animal licensing body. So there are basically two things, which are mixed in the operation of a cat cafe:

  • Operating a Cafe (serving drinks & food)
  • Operating a Pet Shop/Animal exhibition (maintain and protect animals from customers, make sure that there are no diseases)

Happy to explore more! --huggi - never stop exploring (talk) 00:46, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
