My girl first asked me to bring her to a cat cafe a couple of years ago. At that time, the boy was still very young and had absolutely no interest in spending a quiet hour with the furry creatures. I myself wasn’t too keen either. Well, not a kitty fan here.

But you know how your kids influence you. Like how they somehow made me like brinjals and ladies’ fingers. Weird.  So now yeah, I must admit that cats are…. sigh… cute. Ya, they are cute. Kind of. And Barry has somehow acquired a liking for them too. He gushes (yes gushes) over Neko Atsume, I kid you not. So, last friday, I brought them to The Company of Cats.

Look at the pretty cats! I went a bit shutter crazy. Can’t blame me. The cats are very photogenic, the most photogenic being this one here, called Meringue. (Love all their names, by the way)

She slept half the time and we didn’t really think much of her there. But she looks gorgeous in all her pictures.

Belle is the fluffiest kitty ever. She’s very chill too which means we could stroke her all we wanted. And oh man, she is such a pleasure to stroke. Such soft soft fur.

Sasha was the most active. She has quite a fiery temper too. She’s beautiful though.

Elliot is a sweetheart! He is all of our favorite! He looks much much better in real life.

Mags. She (or he?) looks like the normal street cat variety but she’s gorgeous. Now we know how important grooming is.

Meringue went to a different place to sleep. I guess we were disturbing her. Haha.

More cats came out of their cat rest room. We didn’t get to play with them much though since it was almost time for us to leave.

This is Skippy.

Kids were very reluctant to leave. They stood for a while, outside the cat room to wave goodbye to the cats. Girl loves the cafe very much. Boy admitted he was kind of bored but he seemed to have enjoyed himself too. We were the only customers there on a weekday afternoon. Although not all the cats were out in the cat room, there were enough for us to gush over. It’s a nice experience.

Finally bade goodbye. I brought the kids to a nearby soya sauce chicken place for dinner. It’s where hubby and I used to eat at. The kids LOVED it! Especially the girl. I’m very heartened to see her enjoying the food so much.

Then, we had a short tour inside Chinatown Point. It’s the kids’ first time there and they were fascinated by the spiral design of the mall.

You can imagine how exhausted we were by the time we reached home. Well, we had lots of fun! Had to spend Saturday resting at home though. Haha.
