Okay, now that we have your attention thanks to the super cute kitten in the bowl let’s just make a PSA (public service announcement): kittens and cats are so ‘purr-cious’, aren’t they?

Though we’ve missed out on International Cat Day, there’s no time like the present to shower feline friends with some love! Here’s the low-down on 4 of Singapore’s cat cafés.

1. Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa

Also widely known as Singapore’s first cat café, Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa (Cat Garden) is the brainchild of the couple, Sam and Sue. The duo had visited many cat cafés in Japan and wanted to bring the experience to Singapore. The couple believed in the power of cat therapy – the joy and relaxation that comes with interacting with the furry companions.

Contrary to its counterparts in Japan, Korea and Bangkok (which feature pedigree cats), Sam and Sue made the conscious decision to feature only adopted cats, in an effort to show that non-pedigree cats can be just as charming and affectionate.

As of today, Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa is home to 13 adopted cats. We’re absolutely enamoured with Baloo and Emma. Baloo’s precious way of greeting (a head butt) had us cooing whilst Emma’s striking blue eyes captivated us the moment we stepped into the café. In the event you get a little parched or hungry during your cuddle session, Neko no Niwa also serves up a selection of desserts and drinks (ah, the perks of being at a cat café)!

Everything is a little better in the company of cats! What started out as “a clubhouse for a bunch of feline pals to gather, do a little yoga, get high on catnip and bask in sunbeams” has now turned into a full-fledged cat café, complete with books to read and food to nosh on.

All of their cats (a total of 11) are also rescues. Each furry feline has its own job title such as Hos-purrtality Meownanger and Purr-blic Relations Meownanger (inserts heart eyes). Our favourite is definitely the cute Permanent Intern (or should we say Purr-manent Intern), Daisy.

Working with a tight budget? The Cat Café is definitely a spot to check out. Breaking from the trend of charging customers per hour, The Cat Café charges a flat rate of SGD15 per entry (complete with a free drink). That means, you can stay for as long as you like!

Again, the felines here are all ex-strays or cats that have been previously abandoned by their owners. Though there’s no food available at The Cat Café, you can just hang there to play with their 15 cats.

As usual, we can’t help but feel biased – we utterly adore FruitCake (a friendly Calico and one of the oldest cats in the café) who’s a complete snuggle-bug. The Cat Café also has special meal times during the day to allow customers to get in on some of that cute (and highly therapeutic) feeding action.

Address:
241B Victoria Street (Level 3)
Singapore 188030

Opening Hours:
Mon: 3.00pm to 10.00pm
Tues to Sun, Public Holiday: 10.00am to 10.00pm

4. Meomi Cat Café

Ho boy, the four-legged friends found here are so pretty, it’s kind of hard not to just melt into a puddle of goo on the spot. It’s really hard to choose a favourite so we’re going to leave it up to you to decide this time. But here’s a fun fact: the café is named after their resident senior felines Meow Meow and Mimi who are also the inspiration behind their delightful logo.

Felines in general have been stereotyped – aloof, uncaring, noisy etc. – a ton. Give these four-legged companions a chance to change your mind. We think you’d enjoy being in a cat/kitten pile!
