Whether you are a cat person, or a newbie who just wanna experience being around cats, Neko no Niwa cat cafe is the place to go and unwind. Unlike other buzzing cafes we are used to hanging out on a Saturday night, this place is serenely peaceful. Everyone seem to whisper softly to each other, making sure that the cats are not shocked by sudden loud noises, it almost feels like we were on a retreat in cat haven and silence resembling a library.
For the price of $12 for the 1st hour, you can escape the hustle and bustle of a metropolitan city and with the help of the staff, you can cradle the friendly cats in the shop. However, if cradling is too close for comfort, you can slowly stretch you hands out to pet the cat. Upon observation, not all cats here appreciate a rub. A few cats have been through trauma and abuse so they are pretty cautious with strangers. The staff are really friendly and are willing to share useful tips on pet care and happy to share the origins of the cats. You can really sense passion in their work and their closeness to these feline creatures.
Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa is located at
