Still haven’t visited Singapore’s first cat cafe Neko no Niwa in Boat Quay (see our photo gallery)? Now you’re going to have to put it on a hit list — another cat cafe is opening in the second week of April.
TheCatCafe is currently running an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise about $19,000 for equipment, shop renovations, as well as adoption and vaccination fees, but owner Candice Neo says they will open even if they don’t meet the fundraising goal. Contributors will be entitled to discounts when the cafe opens, plus free drinks and snacks.
At the moment they’re already in the final phase of renovations and have settled mandatory licences.
TheCatCafe will be located at 241B Victoria Street in Bugis Village and will house 15 — 18 stray cats.
Unlike Neko no Niwa, which charges by the hour, TheCatCafe will only impose a one-time fee of $14 per entry — customers will enjoy a complimentary drink and can stay as long as they like.
