Coffee shops and cafeterias have long been a good business venture in Singapore, but now there’s another form of café that is gradually gaining popularity in the island: cat cafés. This special kind of café asks customers to pay an admission fee, buy some drinks, and then spend some time petting the resident cats in the coffee shop.
This type of café first made a buzz in countries like Japan, Thailand and South Korea, and now entrepreneurs have decided to bring the concept to Singapore. Here are some of the most popular cat cafés in the country.
The Company of Cats
As the name of the coffee shop suggests, you get to spend time in the company of the nine cats residing in the shop. Soon, the number of cats will increase to 12 as the location of the shop gives enough space for the felines to roam around, rest and even hide from the crowd if they want to.
The café also is an advocate of a good cause because all of the cats they have were adopted or rescued from abusive owners.
Meomi Cat Café
Located beside Haji Lane, Meomi Cat Café houses seven cats- six of which were bought from the pet shop while one was rescued. The number of cats is a bit small because the owner wants to ensure that he can attend to all of the cats’ needs while still serving delicious drinks and food fares to the customers.
Edwin Tan, the owner of the café, does most of the basic tasks in the shop like grooming the cats and cleaning up the place.
Cat Café Neko ni Niwa
This is Singapore’s first cat café, having opened on Christmas day of 2013. Tan Sue Lynn, a co-owner, shared that her motivation for starting the business was to share to others the joy of owning and taking care of cats. The shop has 13 cats, all of which were adopted from previous owners or rescuers.
The co-owner believes that cat cafés around the world should make an initiative to educate people on how felines should be respected and treated.
