Doors  台北市遼寧街45巷15號。電話: (02) 2777-5760
如果按照老闆娘自己撰寫的這篇文章來看,這個店已經開了即將20年了。
這篇文章點進去,會有詳細的地圖、走路方式等等。老闆娘並沒有善於攝影這個部分,所以文章中的照片看起來還不是很吸引人。
Last Friday, I ask few cat lovers to a restaurant, which carries on business nearly 20 years, and this restaurant named Doors, has cats in there. I guess I want to make a subject names " stores with cats" haha, recently I collect many places with cats.

花木扶疏的外觀,讓人莞爾一笑。
The Doors's door has lots of plants, and makes me smile.

20年的老店走了進去,不難看得到歲月的痕跡,牆壁有重新粉刷過,但是顏色也又褪了,很多擺設的小物可以看見灰塵,整家店的氤氳,就是一抹20年的滄桑。有幾株小花感覺的出來是年輕的,如同溫暖的季節總是有小貓誕生一樣帶來了一點不一樣的生命力。
20 years old restaurant walk inside, you can very easily see the color of age. The wall re-paint before but the color still old again,  And I can see many little stuffs has dust on it, you can feel the atmosphere calling: 20 years old. Few flowers are young as many kitties always born on warm season.

我們把包包堆好,點好菜,等著老闆娘的好菜,就先去左看看、右拍拍~ 其實很簡單我原本一開始約的目的是,可以以我們這些半調子拍貓人來拍個食記,來幫老闆娘寫寫這家店放在網路上,讓大家看到了也可以去光顧一下。因為明明是二十年的老店了,寫這家餐廳心得文的部落格卻是少得可憐。讓我覺得很奇怪。
We places our bags and make the order,  while we are waiting for the dinner, we are checking the area and photo the cats. My original attention is, me ask few cat friends could take few photos blog the article of this restaurant, to let more people know. Because this restaurant even open  for 20 years, but very few blog written about it, and that is very strange in Taiwan. We always blog very old or popular stores on our blog and make more people wanna to visit there.

很快的就發現映入眼簾的,是身體狀況不佳的小貓。而且老闆娘並沒有很在意。
Soon we can see there are few kitties don't have good health. And the restaurant owner doesn't really care about this condition.

下面這一張桌子應該是這家Doors最具有氣氛的一張桌子了。
And the photo as below should be the most romantic table of the restaurant.

然後,我們喜歡的小貓咪們登場,
And....cute kitties...

這隻是小小花。
This is the kid.

下面這隻是小花,是小小花的媽媽。
And this is the mommy.

我們和小花媽媽玩了很久她也很活潑~
We played with them for a long time, she is a very funny cat as well.

才知道,老闆娘並沒有結紮這些貓咪。不讓這些貓咪繼續生養的方式,是將她們放到屋內,不跑到外面去,但是我們都知道,這是沒有辦法杜絕的,何況,我們跟這隻貓媽媽玩,是在外面的植物區玩耍呢。
And we know, the restaurant owner didn't let her cats makes the ligations, the way to avoid they have more babies, is putting them inside the restaurant, don't let them go out, but while we play with this cat mommy, we did play outside, and that is not a good way to avoid the cat has more babies.

老闆娘的這篇文章寫了,有鄰居威脅她要毒死貓咪。而且也希望她店裡的貓咪有人可以認養,我看了覺得很感傷。結紮、保持健康和衛生,這是最基本的,如果老闆娘可以把店裡的貓結紮,變且維持健康,店外的貓TNR;我覺得要把這邊維持得像小型的極簡那樣,也許不至於太過於困難。問題是這家店內的貓幾乎每一隻都有大小的健康問題,讓人覺得為了這些小貓咪們感到害怕。
The restaurant owner somehow makes us very worry,  her cats almost doesn't have good health, I really do think she needs to make her restaurant cat maintain good health and make the ligation. And we also heard that their neighbor doesn't like the restaurant owner feed the street cats, also makes us very sad.

不過,老闆娘的菜還滿好吃的,我們十個人,確實有個愉快的周五夜晚
But, the Door's dishes are ok, we ten cat lovers DID have a great Friday night.

店裡面也許還得要努力翻新,如果還有餘裕的話,如果沒有,至少要去除很多灰塵。並且也許得教導客人遇到小貓上桌子如果不希望的話可以稍微用手推推小貓讓他們下去,其實貓咪是懂得學習的。一些簡單的貓與人之間的禮讓,可以讓更多人喜歡這家店。我們來的那晚,因為有貓跳到別的客人的桌上喝客人的水,讓客人就這樣走了。其實這是可以避免的。在我們這群瘋狂愛貓人的眼中也許不怎麼樣,但是輕輕推一下貓咪讓他知道你不希望她喝你的水,她們是懂得。
Maybe this store need so renew, if the owner still have some money saved, if not, at least need to remove the dust, and we also saw a guest goes inside, one of the cat jump on the table and started to drink the water of that guest's glass, and that guest left the restaurant, actually if you don't want cat drink your glass, that is very easy to let them know, you just need gently move your hand very tender push them or stop them, cats are really smart, they will know~ Some nice polite stop between cats and beans could let the Doors has more business. People need to "learn" how to love cat as well.

如果要靠幾個真的瘋狂的愛貓人撐起這家店的生計是不可能的,老闆娘還需要做很多的改變
If Doors want have better business, the atmosphere needs to be change, with few crazy cat lovers won't be change very much.
IMG_4346s
很基本的,貓咪結紮、健康,還有貓與人之間的倫理該怎麼平衡,該怎麼讓這附近的人們知道貓咪的可愛,這也許是老闆娘目前很急迫得要做的事情。我們真的很希望有貓的店可以很棒的生存下去,因為這麼可愛的寵物已經漸漸成為現代人生活的伴侶主軸(請看新聞:貓狗大戰 家貓成為新寵兒) 。只要有一點點的努力以及改變,其實很多人都會來捧場的,也不至於希望自己店內的貓咪被領養走。老闆娘加油!!!
Very basic way, ligation and good health, and doing th eir neighborhood street cats TNR, and teach their neighbor knowing the beauty of cats, might be the most important job of Doors's owner,  we certainly really hope the store with cats more and more, because we love cats, I think it's only need a few changes, more clients will come!
也許我說得不夠精準,但是我也期待,這家店不是改成以餐廳為主店貓為點綴的驚喜為輔、或者是跟極簡類似,就以貓咪為主、喝咖啡和餐點為輔的地方,很明確的立訂店的風格,然後去做個改造吧~

It seems that if she wants to appeal to cat lovers, she should take good care of her cats (and spay and neuter them). It is too bad.

That makes me mad when people don't fix their cats and let them run around and do that. Either fix your cat and/or keep them indoors.

Parker said...

How sad for the kitties, I hope she starts to take better care of them!

Daisy said...

I am sad that the owner does not take better care of the cats. I would not mind a little dust if the cats were well cared for!

Busby and Raymond said...

That was very interesting. We agree with the others, the owner needs to take better care of her cats.

Junior and Orion said...

Yep, what others have said. Take better care of the cats.

Maybe she could put a donation jar out to help her with the costs of caring for the cats=^Y^=

Doors looks like a nice place and the kitties are very cute! We wish,however, that the owner took better care of the kitties.
