Cat Welfare
How many cats do you have?
There are currently 7 members of our feline family. Say hello here.

What is a 'cat-cafe'?
A cafe is a coffee shop that serves beverages while you sit and visit with a friend, work on your laptop, or just watch the world go by.  A cat cafe is essentially the same (Google refers to them as 'themed cafes') except there are cats present.
 
The first cat cafe opened in 1998 in Taipei, Taiwan, a cafe called Cat Flower Garden, now known as Cafe Dogs & Cats.  While the concept began in Taiwan, Japan popularized it after Japanese visitors brought the idea home and established Japan's first cat cafe, Neko no Jikan in Osaka in 2004.  Tokyo's first cat cafe opened in 2005, and the number of cat cafes has exploded since then.  Today, Asia leads the way with over 400 such cafes across Japan, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia.

How do cat cafes work?
 
Can i bring my own cat?
A cat cafe is not for cats to visit, but for people to visit cats who reside in the cafe
