Kitty Cat Cafe - Near Democracy Monument @ Bangkok [Thailand] #kittycatcafe

Right after the filling meal at Krua Apsorn, i was checking out the directions to the forensic museum when i noticed something on Google Map; Kitty Cat Cafe. 

Since Andy is a huge feline lover and the cafe was somewhat along the way; we thought it might be fun and therapeutic to pay it a visit first, before we surrounded ourselves with dead bodies! 

The supposedly opening hour of 11.00 am didn't materialize as the shop remained shut at 11.32 am when we reached. Oh well, Andy managed to entertain himself with the stray cats loitering outside the cafe.

Two shopfronts for the cafe; we can already see cats lazing around and staff members preparing the cafe for opening. The shop eventually opened at about 11.42 am; thankfully not an excruciating wait for us. 

Note Before Stepping In! 
Order at least a drink / dessert for one person or pay an entrance fee of 60 baht. Wash your hands at the entrance and remove your shoes. Don't feed the cats human food; snacks for the cats are available (for purchase). Be gentle with the cats and don't disturb them if they are snoozing! 

Interior of the cafe; spacious would be the key word i can think of and as you can probably deduce yourself; it wasn't cluttered with fanciful decoration as in the case of the now defunct Purr Cat Cafe.

After that unhappy experience at Makura Cat Cafe (also in Bangkok), i was mindful that our bags shouldn't be at a spot where cats can comfortably sit on and take a pee. It was only when other customers started streaming in that i realized we were blocking others from taking the foldable tables! 

I will be bombarding you very soon with loads of cat photographs and judging from my facebook newsfeed, i know quite a number of you would go ooooh and ahhhh over the many adorable cats in the cafe! 

According to the staff, there were 30 cats in total although only 16 were out with us. Not all were pedigree as you could probably guess and some were in fact strays before their nine lives took a turn for the better in this air-conditioned cafe.

Cat treats were available at 50 baht and it came in a can and a spoon. 

Turned out to be a great tool to entice the felines to come to us! See how popular Andy suddenly became! Okay, to be fair, he already had better affinity with the cats compared to Alex and me but his popularity spiked with the canned food in his hand. 

As required from us as customers to the cafe; we got iced mocha, hot cocoa and cold chrysanthemum tea. There were more than just drinks on the menu, which i would share at the end of this post.  

This sleeping cat reminded me of a clock i saw once from taobao.com where the tail acted as a pendulum! Oh boy, the cats can literally doze off anywhere, anytime. For someone who has been facing insomnia, i am so envious! 

More on the adorable felines! 

I don't usually share my selfies in this blog but i took so many; it would be a waste for me to keep them all hidden in my phone! Hence, sharing a few considered the best of the lot!
