Neko No Niwa Singapore

Neko No Niwa Cat Cafe Singapore

It was a nice cloudy day when I accidentally found Neko No Niwa Cat Cafe during my walk along Boat Quay Singapore alone in the pouring rain. I’ve read a lot about this cat cafe thingy before but never had a chance to visit one myself. So when I was about to go to Singapore, I promised myself to visit Neko No Niwa, which is also Singapore’s first cat cafe since it’s located just a few blocks away from my hostel.

Finding Neko No Niwa is quite easy since it has this catchy cat-shaped sign.

For those of you who’s not familiar with the concept (just like my hostel roommate was), cat cafe is actually pretty similar with the other common cafe. But aside from the drinking and eating activity you usually do, you can hang out, cuddle, and play with the cats. Does it sounds weird to you? As it is to me, at the first time. But the more I read about it, the more curious I become.

You might also wanna know that I’m not a fan of cats, at all. I never even touched a cat before. I wonder what got into me, but here I can’t even stop cuddling them.

There are 2 section of the place, which is the area where you can play with the cat while eating your meals and the area you can order your food. When you first enter the cafe, you have to leave your shoes at a certain place and wash your hand before entering the cats room.

Then, they’ll give you this Cat Cafe Handbook which mostly explains about each cats : their name, ages, what they like, what they don’t like, and how to interact with cats. There were several rules like never pull a cat’s tail, don’t wake a sleeping cat, etc.

It was 11 am and some cats were taking a nap, so I ended up playing with the awaken ones. But I heard, mid day is the time for them to take a nap so you better come over on afternoon or at night.

Since I’m not really in the mood of eating, I ordered a cup of hot cappuccino instead. It was just nice, but hey, no one came here for the drink or the food. They came here for the cats. Coffee is just a plus point 😉

I spent an hour here (SGD 12) just playing with the cats and I kinda like it here that I wished I could stay just a bit longer, but then my stomach began to ask for food. It’s very homey and comfortable. They even played a nice relaxing music. This place is definitely worth a visit even for a non – animal lovers like me. Make sure to drop by when you’re around! 😉

Cover charge : $12 for the first hour, and $5 for the next half hour.

      1. That was what literary happened to me and Ariev when we visited this cat cafe. Most of the cats were on their nap time, so not so much fun. 😦 And when one of the cats finally woke up, it was quickly surrounded by a lot of people. “Awwww so cute and Lalalala”.

        It wasn’t exactly like what I imagined, but I enjoyed the cafe. Especially seeing how other people behave around cats. So much fluffiness that day.

  1. What a great place! Thanks for blogging about it. We have a similar cafe in town and all the cats there are homeless, so if you fall in love with one, you can buy it and take it home! Apparently it is very successful both for finding homes for stray cats and also for others like me who are cat lovers and already have enough cats but love the idea of being surrounded by contented moggies.
