Cat Friendly Cat Cafes in Singapore

There is just something about cats that makes life purrfect. Speaking from experience, after a long day at work, I would always look forward to my cat’s antics. However, I know many of you love cats too but you may not be able to own one due to some reason. So this article is for cat lovers who would spend their time (and money) at cat cafes. 

Quick tip, before touching a cat, always let the cat smell your hand first. Do not give the cat a scare as cats need time to adjust to you (they are sensitive beings).

Tips for visiting cat cafes

  1. Make sure you have lots of time to spend there as cats take time to get to know you. On top of that, not all cats will be awake during the time you are there. So you may need to wait for a little for the princes and princesses to awaken from their deep slumber. 
  2. Wear shoes/footwear that are easy to remove as for some cat cafes, you are required to remove your footwear. 
  3. It is good to read up on the cat cafe’s websites on the different cat personalities as you may not want to cross a feline (like ever). 
  4. Check with the caretakers first before giving any treats to any of the cats (health reasons). 
  5. Take loads of photos! 

These precious little furballs are undeniably lovable that there is even a breed called "Kucinta" which roughly translates to "love" in the Malay language. So you definitely won't want to miss out on why cats are one of the most popular pets and in the world, visit these cat cafes to get a taste of their affection. You won't regret it! Who knows, you might become a fur-parent as well!
