Giving a Belly Rub to a Raccoon

I was definitely a little nervous at first. I know how crazy raccoons can be, not to mention that they’re notorious for getting in trash back home, but I love themed cafes and animals, so I figured this was worth a shot.

What was so great is that we went during an off time (Sunday evening) so we had plenty of one on one interactions with the raccoons. I’m glad I didn’t have to fight of sea of people to pet one or take a picture.

It’s definitely not the cleanest of places (obviously lol), and the raccoons do get grabby. I suggest not wearing clothes that are super nice.

Admission is 7,000 won. It does not come with a free drink, but you can buy one there (we didn’t). One thing that I recommend you spend money on is food for the raccoons and dogs. There were a couple little bag options, but the one we got was for 3,000 won.

Part of me felt guilty because the raccoons are clearly so well fed, but I think it was worth it. Be careful with the food, especially the plastic! They were very grabby, and they can snatch your bag in a split second.

I loved how this staff member was so interactive with them.

So what’s it like giving a belly rub to a raccoon? AWESOME!

They were very domesticated, and they loved being touched. Not once did I worry about one getting aggressive on me.

Overall, interacting with them was like playing with fat lazy puppies. 10/10 would do again.
