A Purrfect Afternoon at Miao Cat Cafe
I am constantly finding ways to surprise my husband so I reserved us a visit to a themed cafe here in QC, Miao Cat Cafe.
Miao Cat Cafe is located at the 2nd floor of Cake2Go (beside Midcon Apartelle), opposite side of KFC, near crossing of Mindanao Ave. and Congressional Ave. There was no large Miao Cat Cafe signage but you can easily spot the Cake2Go sign.
The stairway entrance is a bit cramped, but it was okay with me since there were only a few us trying to get in. Their “reservation only” rule is quite practical because of restricted space.
As of writing, they accept walk-ins with unlimited hours of stay. Back in 2015, I reserved a 2-4 PM slot (we’re allowed to stay for 2 hours only) and I had to wait for weeks because slots had already filled up for the month of March.
House Rules & Reminders
Before we were allowed to enter, they asked us to disinfect, remove our shoes (slippers were provided), and keep in mind some house rules. If you have cat allergies, make sure you’ve taken antihistamine / used nasal sprays prior to your visit.
- Don’t pick up cats
- No poking, pulling, and pinching
- No feeding of cats
- No camera flashes
- Do not disturb cats who are sleeping and eating
- Shh! No to loud voices
The Miao Cat Cafe is a must-visit for cat lovers. With its charming and cozy ambiance, guests are sure to enjoy some fun time with the cats. Each decor in place is well-thought of and the pieces are all cat-friendly.
This tiny cat paradise is complete with cat towers and condos, hang bridges, pillows, wall systems, and cat perches. I’m familiar with some of these cat furniture because we owned a Siamese cat a few years ago and I also play the kawaii cat collecting mobile game app, Neko Atsume. 🙂 I love cats because they’re cute.. and weird (in the cutest way possible, yeah I love weird..) but I’m absolutely, definitely, totally NOT a cat person.
Growing up I wasn’t allowed to take care of cats and dogs as pets (my mom hates cleaning up after their mess and she also hates the idea of them cute beasts biting her children LOL) so I only had fishes and hamsters confined inside aquariums and cages. Oh I had a bunny once, but I also had to let go of it.
Entrance Fee & Food
I am allergic to cats so the balcony became a temporary refuge for me. The feline cuties can come in and out from the balcony through a pet door hole. It is where they eat (to recharge) and take quick breaks.
There’s a designated wall for gift items that you can purchase for yourself and for your cat-loving pals: shirts, chopsticks, purses, mugs, office supplies, and more.
For Cat Lovers
My cat-loving husband had an awesome time caressing their furry coats and playing with them using a mouse teaser cat toy.
I have no idea how many cats were around when we came to visit, but I’m sure there were more than 10 or 15 of them. Here are some of the cats that we met during our visit.
Felix the Straw Ninja. The straws in your drinks are in danger. LOL. Felix is a British Shorthair cat. Remember Puss in Boots and the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland?
Oreo the Munchkin kitty. Oreo is one of the crowd favorites, para lang kasing Oreo cookies!
Elis, the Exotic Shorthair, is my favorite. I think she’s the cutest! If ever I’ll own a cat, I want this short-haired version of the Persian cat breed!
Elf and Elfia are Scottish Fold sisters/twins/siblings. I don’t know who’s this in the photo.
This is Cotton. Na-feel niya that I’m not a cat lover, kaya deadma ako hahaha. 🙂 We also met Kahel, Slinky the Alpha, and the sweetest Puspin (Pusang Pinoy) who kept on jumping onto my husband’s lap.
Here are some of my shots using the Hipstamatic Camera. I miss Hipstamatic since I switched to Huawei P9. It’s an Apple-exclusive app (sayang yung purchased films, lenses, and flashes ko) pero sana gumawa sila for Android. 🙁
Before we go, they snapped a photo of our batch. They had to clean up for an hour before the next batch comes in. Thank you Miao Cat Cafe! I’m looking forward to your Kitty Camp. 🙂
