I used to have a cat, which was great for me. I have been twice to the cat cafe nearest to me. I was sad for the cats the first time I went, especially seeing one other visitor who was pestering the cats even when they were walking away from her, reading them more as objects than as unique beings. So I have mixed feelings about cat cafes. As a former cat owner it is a different relationship with a cat cafe cat than with your own cat. I think I enjoy the idea of the cat cafe me than the experience, but if other people enjoy it that's ok. And it's good that this business owner is offering free sessions to people who could benefit more than most customers by visiting.
