1. Catopia Café

Catopia began as a cat boarding facility before transitioning to a café area filled with — wait for it — gorgeous cats. The place, which has taken up a two-story shophouse in Little India, is a home for 22 cats, mostly rescues. Fall in love with its diverse breeds, which include Bengals, British Shorthairs, and Persians. While you’re giving the lovely kitties some sugar (read: scratches and pats), don’t forget to indulge yourself to a variety of desserts.

Here’s what Hariz Razali, one of their happy customers, has to say about their experience visiting: “Thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I have visited Catopia twice and I extended my stay for another hour on both occasions 😅 the double-storey cafe provides plenty of room for the >10 cute cats to roam and play. Staff are pleasant and will share about the different cats with customers. Highly recommended! P.s. Boomer is the best.”

Pricing: $S16/- & 1 complimentary soft drink for the first two hours. $S4/- for every additional 30 mins (Prices are subject to change without prior notice)

Store Hours: Mon: Closed

Tuesday to Sunday: 10 am to 8 pm

The modest yet welcoming Meomi Cat Cafe can be found in the Kampong Glam neighborhood. It is home to seven in-house cats. And these beauties are stunning (imagine British Shorthair and Maine Coon) and full of personality! You’ll easily spend hours at this place because to its comfortable seating, kitten toys, and human pleasures like cake and coffee on the menu.

If you’re curious what their visitors think of this café, here’s Joshua Thia’s review: “Had a really fun time today at Meomi Cat Cafe. Nice place that isn’t too big. Feels really cosy and the cats here are friendly and chill. Short five minute walk from Bugis MRT.”

Pricing: S$13 for first hour (inclusive of one drink). S$5 per subsequent half-hour.

Store Hours: Mon/Tuesday: Closed

3. Neko no Niwa

Neko no Niwa has quite the pedigree: it was the forerunner for the swarm of cat cafés that have subsequently grown up in Singapore, having opened in 2013. It’s worth knowing that the owners, Sam and Sue, are big believers in the ‘adopt, don’t shop’ mentality – all 11 of their cats were formerly abandoned. The felines here are older, ranging in age from seven to eleven, yet still naughty enough to steal human food and bat string toys. If you are unsure about the best manner to pet each kitty, the staff will gladly assist you.

One local guide, Adriano Araujo, has this to say of this unique café in Singapore: “We came as part of the celebration of my daughter’s birthday. Interesting concept. They do take care well of the cats. You are asked to take off your shoes and wash your hands with soap before entering the space. Once in, you are free to interact with the cats (if they want to interact with you). This is kind of the challenge as almost all the cats were asleep and those awake did not want lots of interaction. Overall still an interesting and worthwhile experience.”

Pricing: S$12 for first hour, S$5 per subsequent half-hour. Three-hour specials go for S$24 while whole-day passes are available at S$32.

Store Hours: Mon, Wed to Sun: 11am to 9pm (last entry at 8pm)

Closed on Tuesdays

Address: Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa is located at 54A Boat Quay (Level 2) Singapore 049843 (NOT at Clarke Quay)

4. Playground Ragdolls

Playground Ragdoll, tucked away in the tranquil suburb of Joo Chiat, is more of a ragdoll cattery than a cat cafe. The place, which is known as the “dogs of the cat world,” has weekly play sessions where you can engage with a clowder of fluffy ragdolls. It’s a great way to learn more about this breed and decide whether you’d like to have one at home. Please keep in mind that you must make an appointment prior to your visit.

According to one user, Vivimew Cat: “I adopted a retired stud previously named Agoston from Playground Ragdolls and the whole experience was great. They were happy to answer any questions I had about integrating him comfortably into his new home.

Agoston (now, Pudding) is a happy, talkative, confident cat who has managed to adapt successfully into my home with my other 2 cats.

Highly recommended to either buy your kitten or adopt a retired queen/stud from here! There is a FB group for owners of Playground Ragdoll cats and so far everyone has been kind and friendly.”

Store Hours: Mon-Wed, Friday-Saturday: Closed

Thursday: 4 pm to 9 pm

Sunday: 1 pm to 7 pm

Address: 237B Joo Chiat Road S(427494)

Cat lovers can revel in kitty cuteness at The Cat Cafe’s several locations. The Bugis location has 15 felines, while the Rail Mall location has 14. It warms our hearts to know that all of the kitties were either strays or adopted. Look out for Oreo (who prefers gentle head scratches and tickles on the chin), Patches (who loves to pose for the gram), and Missy (a Siamese mix cat who adores headbutts).

According to one of their loyal customers who go by the handle, GlamifySG: “Truly the PURRFECT cat cafe that serves gourmet drinks (their coffee is freshly brewed btw!) and the cakes!!! Their food is from halal supplier 🙂 Lasagna smells so yummy! I’m fasting so definitely will come back one evening for the food. Made with love by Candice (lady boss) and team.”

Pricing: $S16/- & 1 complimentary soft drink for the first two hours. $S4/- for every additional 30 mins (Prices are subject to change without prior notice)
