老公和再去貓貓地攤 – revisiting cat cafe with husband and a new video

If you follow my blog long enough, you might remember my last year’s post – review of Ah Meow Cat Cafe inCauseway Bay, Hong Kong (click here if you haven’t or you just want to refresh your memory).

I loved that place and there was no way I wouldn’t go there this time. Now Sing had no excuse, I tested it by myself and he had to go there with me. But then, if you watch the video you will see how he actually enjoyed the whole kitty-cafe idea.
I mean any cat that won’t run away from him is considered as ‘best friend’ by Sing. I don’t know why, for some reason animals cannot handle the amount of love he has towards them.

As always, it was clean and cats were well treated. Staff working there was making sure people don’t abuse cats for ‘cute cat selfies’ or that people like Sing won’t run after the cats and scare them.
Sadly for my husband, his concept of love is just too much for poor little furry friends and they see him as aDSC_0200 huge hairless bat-man approaching with a rapid speed. I guess they should have added his photo to the ‘Cat Handling Manual’ with a caption ‘Don’t behave like this man. Just don’t.’.

Luckily, since I was filming everything, he tried not to approach the animal in his ‘regular’ way which in the end paid off and he played a bit with the star of the cafe – little kitten.

We went there during lunch time, it wasn’t too crowded. We ordered two special drink – Korean pomelo I chose last year and Sing had a pineapple-mango mix. We also ordered two baked items – rice and pasta, Hong Kong style.
Really decent food, but I think their drinks are much tastier than food. I mean, it’s not bad, it’s good, but if I have to chose which one I like better I would chose the drinks. Or maybe because it was super hot I didn’t really feel hungry.

No cat cafe experience can be completed without kitty-style dessert. This time we chose mix of fresh fruits, DSC_0174dark chocolate cake and two cute cat-shaped cookies. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, but SING LOVED IT. Yes, you read it correctly – Sing loved a dessert. I guess that’s the only review you need.

Did anything change since last year? Some of the cats are the regular residents, especially the one that always looks like he’s a disappointed parent. There were some new cats. The interior changed a bit, especially the display when you walk in, but it’s still cozy and very friendly place.
The only thing I could complain about is the toys to play with cats weren’t as easy to find as they were last time. I guess if you ask the staff they will give you some, but I don’t know why they seemed to be hidden this time.

Overall, it’s a very pleasant experience and I’m happy I could finally share it with Sing. Not to mention, it helped me a little bit to survive those ‘Biscuit-less’ days, even though I knew she was under good care of my parents.

How do you like the concept of cat cafes? Or animal-cafes in general? Let me know what you think or maybe you have some unique animal-cafe experience you wish to share? I would be happy to read your take on this topic! 🙂

    1. It’s actually very clean! I don’t know how they do it, but the only cat fur that was there, was on my cloths from my luggage (Biscuit’s way of saying ‘that’s my human’) – other than that it was really tidy, no hair in food… and no secret how to make things like that at home haha 🙂

  1. Sing! Dude. Cats like what’s unavailable (with the exception of boxes, which they cannot resist). They’re contrary that way. Surest way to get a cat to come to you is to think, “I’m allergic! I hate cats! Stay away!”

    Luckily you had help from your wife. Someday, perhaps, you will learn to play hard to get.

    No cat cafes here. 😦 I would love one, even though I have my own.

    Those desserts do look good.

  2. Wait what, Sing liked a dessert? The person who doesnt like sweet stuff? Wow, must have been really good then!
    I dont know about this kind of animal themed cafes but probably this is only because I have never visited one :p
    Just saw in TV that even Helsinki got a cat cafe now, hard to imagine with those creepy people there that anyone would go …

  3. I think my boyfriend would love this place (he is always carrying around a bag of cat food in case he comes across one of the street cats living in our compound) but it would be probably hell for me thanks to my cat allergy, haha.

    (BTW, I am completely sure my cat allergy was developed thanks to the “great” Beijing air. I don’t think I was allergic to cats before coming to China…).

  5. Wow I didn’t know that Hong Kong had cat cafes! I only knew about the ones in Japan. As far as I know, I don’t think there is one in Vancouver, B.C. 😦 The cats look so cute~ I would also like to say that you have a very good camera!
