If sitting in a quiet and quaint space surrounded by purring cats is your idea of bliss, then you will indeed find cat cafes as little slices of heaven in the middle of your busy metropolis. 

What started out in Taiwan and became more popular in Japan, cat cafes can now be found in Singapore. They essentially serve individuals who want to interact with cats and get some much-needed stress relief from the hectic urban life.

Whether you’re a long-time cat lover or wanting to see why cats inspire such devotion from so many people, these five cafes in Singapore let you hang out with friendly felines while you sip a cuppa on the side.

1. The Cat Cafe

The Cat Cafe first opened in 2014 and has become one of the most popular ones in the Little Red Dot. Their first branch in Bugis is now home to at least 15 cats. 

The two founders are feline lovers who made a business opportunity out of rescuing cats, which is why all the cats at their cafe are either adoptees from shelters or strays. Now, they have a second branch located at Rail Mall in Upper Bukit Timah Road.

For SGD 16, you get to spend two hours at the cafe with a complimentary canned drink and free Wi-Fi use. The cafe has options for coffee, tea, chocolate, and freshly-baked pastries as top-ups. If you like to stay beyond two hours, you only need to pay SGD 4 for every additional 30 minutes. 

Price: From SGD 16

2. Meomi Cat Cafe

At least seven fur babies rule in this rustic cat haven at Kampong Glam. Here at Meomi Cat Cafe, you can treat the kitties and yourself to snacks (coffee and pastries for you, cat treats for them). 

Choose from the cafe’s wide selection of brews and sweets (the chocolate cake is a massive hit among loyal customers). If you want to feed the cats, you can only do so during their scheduled meal times, so you might want to time your visit accordingly.
