From the moment you step into the cafe, you can sense this is going to be one of those magical moments that will be unforgettable. Everything about the entrance of the cafe is purrfectly aligned with the name.

Entry to the feline residents required all visitors to remove their shoes and a brief of the rules. After placing your bag and shoes in private lockers, one can move through the second door where you will mostly likely be greeted by Mr. Fox (or so I believe his name to be).

The resident quarters are filled with a range of couches for guests, cubby houses for local residents and tons of toys for them to play with. Coffee and drinks, which have been ordered, will be delivered while interacting with playful felines.

Many readers at this point will possibly ask why anyone would want to visit cats when you could easily adopt one. However, an easy answer is that cat owners, including myself, would find having coffee with a cat very appealing.

Notably, the Cat Cafe is not for everyone. However, for those who love cats, it is definitely an enjoyable experience. Naturally, one can also have a coffee without interacting with cats but we found that playing with kitties was a lot more entertaining.

Bookings are required which you can either do online or in the cafe. Proceeds go towards Cat Haven which is a haven for cats needing a loving home. No more than 12 people are allowed in each hour, which means more one-on-one time with kitties.

The Cat Cafe Purrth is a new cafe, however, it is already receiving rave reviews. After speaking to the owner, I learnt that the idea of the Cat Cafe was inspired by a cafe in Japan. Without a doubt, making a leap of faith by opening a unique business like this is a calculated risk, however, as a young entrepreneur, Terps feels confident that she has done the right move. I tend to agree with her and will be quite happy to return for another visit in the near future.
