We’ve seen cats and dogs getting along together just fine. But cats and owls? Welcome to the world of Hukulou Coffee.

Located in Osaka, Hukulou Coffee is an owl cafe, serving up cups of hot coffee and oodles of owl cuteness. If that weren’t enough (and I guess it’s not), the resident owl, Fuku-chan, is chummy with a kitten named Marimo.

Recently, the pair was introduced on Japanese site Net Lab. Some of the photos below have been retweeted several thousand times.
