Manga Review: CAT MASSAGE THERAPY Vol. 2 & 3 by Haru Hisakawa (2022)

Genre: Slice-of-life comedy josei
Year Release in English: 2022

Rating: 5 out of 5.

There’s not much to say about this series aside from like, if you like cute art, cats, and turning your brain off for an hour or so to the bad things in the world, this is a gift.

In Volume 2, we meet a new cat named Ms. Aroma. She is the aromatherapy cat for all things cats love. The humans massage her and she gets to be cute and playful in exchange.

There’s a new worker at the firm who’s trying his best to endear himself to his bosses and the cats. I’d say he’s doing a great job at it and the interplay between the trainees and the cat bosses mirrors the human office in some ways. It’s really fun and each new chapter makes me squee. The hot spring bonus chapter is a particular delight.

I’m not sure I can summarize this volume better than the mangaka, in which in text it is said that dogs and cats are like bubble tea, where dogs are the boba and the cats are the sweet tea. Absolutely delightful.

There’s a slight stress when the rival dog massage parlor opens up, but even then, it ends more furry softness for all involved. Perfect massages, perfect toe beans, all the fluff.
