If there is one thing better than lazing at a cafe on a hot afternoon over iced coffee and cake, it is doing so with a cuddly buddy by your side. Animal cafes have already gained their popularity in Singapore now since the opening of many dog and cat cafes in recent years.
Cat cafes, in particular, have been getting a lot of attention; there are four cat cafes located in central Singapore alone. It is pretty safe to say that Singaporeans have gone absolutely radical over felines.
Cafe-hopping will never be the same again with the addition of adorable kittens of which you can give your undivided attention to, whilst sipping on a cuppa. In celebration of our feline friends, here is the lowdown on cafes in Singapore that house the cutest kitties for the most purr-fect afternoon ever.
#1 MEOMI CAT CAFÉ
The latest addition to the cat cafe scene is Meomi Cat Café. The cafe itself is tiny but its cosy space offers patrons a nice afternoon getaway. With plenty of comfortable seating areas and a variety of adorable kitties roaming around, there is no doubt you will be stuck there for hours.
Meomi’s collection of in-house cats is especially unique: be sure to look out for Mario, the resident munchkin cat. Short-legged and incredibly cute.
Cover charge: S$15 (includes a hot beverage).

Neko No Niwa is the cat café that started it all in Singapore. The owners are firm believers of adopting instead of buying, so all 13 cats living at Neko No Niwa are adopted to save them from abandonment. A noble belief, one in which more animal enthusiasts should stand by.
With so many playful kitties running around, the positive energy this cafe exudes is boundless and makes for a great afternoon chill-out spot with other fellow cat lovers.
