  A cat cafe is a store with cats as the main body. Consumers can not only taste drinks in the store, but also enjoy the joy of cuddling cats.

On the afternoon of January 9, in a cat cafe in Chaoyang District, Xuanxuan was bitten by a cat on her wrist.

  Later, Xuanxuan came to the community hospital for treatment.

"The doctor said that the skin is damaged and needs to be vaccinated against rabies, but there are two types of vaccines, 75 yuan and 300 yuan a shot. Under the doctor's advice, Xuanxuan received a 300 yuan shot of the vaccine, plus the treatment fee for 5 shots, a total of 1625 Yuan." Xuanxuan's mother, Ms. Zheng, said.

  Afterwards, Ms. Zheng hoped that the cat cafe would compensate for the vaccine and other related expenses.

The store owner said that according to the store regulations, the standard of compensation for vaccination is 500 yuan.

The store owner said and pointed to the "Instructions for Customers" posted above the door, which read: If consumers get scratched after purchasing insurance and need to be vaccinated against rabies, the store will bear the basic vaccination fee.

Ms. Zheng does not accept this kind of treatment.

  Under the mediation of the shopping mall, the store is willing to bear the vaccine cost of 1,625 yuan.

But after the child was vaccinated, he had a fever.

"The doctor said that it may be related to the adverse reaction of the vaccine." Ms. Zheng was angry and anxious.

After coordination, the two sides agreed to continue to communicate compensation matters after the child's fever subsided.
