The Cat Cafe

TheCatCafe is opening on 22 June

We are finally MEOWING on 22nd JUNE

After the much delayed renovation and various issues face in getting licenses, we are finally ready to fully open on 22nd June 2014. Our cats finally arrived to the cat cafe on 12 June and majority have gotten used to the environment and freely roams about their new home. If you find a few kitties running away from you, it just that they are still shy and haven gotten used to the human crowd yet.

Here’s the details you have been waiting for:

Official opening dates: 22 June 2014 – 10 am

Pricing

  • $15 per entry (with a complementary soft drink)
  • Additional top-ups available to upgrade to choice of coffee, tea, juices, etc

Operating Hours

  • Monday: 3pm to 10pm
  • Tuesday – Sunday: 10am to 10pm.

Reservation

  • We do not allow reservation as TheCatCafe works on a per entry model- would be a little hard for us to manage the supply and demand.
  • Reservation is only available for our Indiegogo funders that bought the various perks.

Making of The Cat Cafe- The Purrect Coffee Place

Many have ask us, why are we taking soooo long to renovate the place.

Well to begin with, we would really love to open as soon as possible. It is our dream to share the love of cats with cat lovers out there. Furthermore it makes perfect business sense to start our business ASAP as we are paying rent for each day the cafe stays empty. However, starting a Cat Cafe is much more than just putting cats in a cafe. We had to work with many agencies such as AVA, NEA, URA and Civil Defense in order to convert an old office space on top of Bugis Village into a cat cafe. We spent more than 3 months, convincing various authorities that we can run a cat cafe in Bugis.  There were definitely times that we felt like giving up, but thank God everything work out fine and renovation finally begun on 28 April 2014.

Here’s a look of what Day 1 of Renovation looked like:

Renovation is estimated to complete by 25 May 2014We would have 2 weeks of soft opening to “migrate” the kitties in and smooth out our operations before officially opening in mid June.  So, hold on tight and stay tune while we upgrade an old office space into The Purrfect Coffee Place

Do Not Feed Toxic Food to Cats in Cat Cafes

Toxicfood_cats

 

There are reasons behind every rules in Cat Cafes. We really upset when customers feed cats with human food. For exmaple, Chocolate contains certain properties that can be toxic to cats: caffeine and theobromine. When ingested, these two ingredients can lead to various medical complications and may even prove fatal to cat.
