Hey there. Are you struggling at home or at work? Do you ever feel like life has handed you some rotten lemons? Do you need a new outlook on life? Well help is on the way! Because all you actually need is to go to the Raccoon Cafe in Korea.

Matt Stopera

YES. YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT! The Raccoon Cafe, in Seoul. A place that will change you! Ok, let's get into it.

~The Cafe~

This is the Raccoon cafe. It's open from 12:30 to 10:30 pm, write that down!

When you walk in you have to take your shoes off. But don't worry, they give you these knockoff Adidas slides to wear.

And 95% of them have been partly chewed off, presumably by the raccoons (or humans, I don't judge!)

After you leave literally all of your belongings in a locker (except for your phone), you walk into the ~cafe~. You can buy real drinks and food here. But we weren't here for the food or drinks.

Lauren Yapalater

We were here for the raccoons.

Those guys were in a different room, separated by glass walls. Ya know, cause of health codes and stuff.

Lauren Yapalater

As with any cafe with raccoons, there were rules. Basically that the place isn't responsible for any damage in any way, the raccoons have sharp teeth, they bite, and they can hurt you. K!

~INSIDE THE ROOM~

Here's something that you'll learn real quick at the Raccoon Cafe. It's not just for raccoons!!!

It's for dogs, too.

At this raccoon cafe inter-species mingling is not only allowed, but celebrated.

Literally after you walk in, you get bombarded by like a variety of canines. But who goes to a raccoon cafe to see dogs? No one. They needed to back off.

Also, the space was big and there was a jungle gym for all the animals to crawl all over.

Or just chill on like this guy.

SUP DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!

SUP DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay now that you've got the lay of the land. Let's talk about ~The Raccoons~

FORGET WHAT YOUR MAMA TOLD YOU!!!!!

Lauren Yapalater

EVERYTHING YOU'VE BEEN TAUGHT IS A LIE.

Lauren Yapalater

Except for the garbage thing, they def eat garbage. BUT OTHER THAN THAT, RACCOONS ARE OUR FRIENDS, NOT FOES.

Lauren Yapalater

If you've been thinking your whole life that raccoons have no feelings, you'd be wrong. This cafe makes sure you respect their god-given bodies. He's a boy and he isn't pregnant, people! So stop askin'!

Matt Stopera

And if you thought raccoons have no manners...think again, buddy! They're polite af. This one gently caressed this man's ear. What happens at the raccoon cafe stays at the raccoon cafe!

Lauren Yapalater

Look at this one drinking. He just wants to stay hydrated like the rest of us.

Here the raccoons can be whoever they wanna be. Even if they are white raccoon that just wants to hug a wall.

Lauren Yapalater

They can wander if they wanna wander.

video-player.buzzfeed.com

They can sit wherever they damn well please!

Lauren Yapalater

And they can walk all over you and you're gonna love every second of it!!

video-player.buzzfeed.com

G'day sir.

Lauren Yapalater

Nice to meet you ma'am!

Lauren Yapalater

Ello there gov'na.

Maycie Thornton

In conclusion: the raccoon cafe is isn't just any cafe. It's a cafe where these eyes will stare into your soul.

Lauren Yapalater

And as this raccoon would say, ta ta for now!
