There is a new miaow source in town and you better get your paws on it quickly if you want your life to take a purrrrfect turn!
Cat Cafe Manila is not your usual cafe in your vicinity. It is a cafe designed for feline lovers with a mission to spread love for cats and advocate for responsible pet ownership while delivering a themed cafe experience for their consumers through loving cats and mouth-watering food and drinks.
The Cafe is located on the second floor of 189 Maginahawa Street corner Makadios Street, Sikatuna Village, Quezon City that opens at 12NN to 10PM every day. There are house rules that are being strictly implemented for the sake of the cats and the visitors as well that you need to follow.
So, how was my experience here? Well, I find the cafe good because the experience here is different from the common cafe you can find in the neighborhood. They offer plates of pasta, cookies and cupcakes, ice-blended drinks and of course coffee and the best of it comes with the peace that the cats give you during your stay! Although I have expected more about the cafe since I thought it was a spacious one. Nonetheless, it was really a nice place to spent an episode of my weekend.
The owners of the cafe who are absolutely feline lovers have partnered with CARA Welfare Philippines (Compassion and Responsibility for Animals) to provide a temporary home for PUSPINS or Pusang Pinoy/Pusakal who will be adopted later on by deserving feline lovers.
ADOPT DON’T SHOP!!!
What better than to have a purring pussy in your life that can bring so much happiness to you and your family and friends and in return for your love and kindness they will repay you tenfold. No more rats or mice and even roaches will be targeted; in fact, most bugs will stay away in fear of their lives and in return, it costs you some milk and a little food.
If you are planning to get a cat, you may want to consider adopting one instead of buying from pet shops. Below are the Cats that are open for adoption. Note that each of these cats has a story, a story about how they were rescued.
Steps in order for you to adopt a cat are as follows:
- Choose a cat. Provide your name, e-mail address and the name of the cat you want to adopt (see above photos) to the Cat Ambassador at the counter.
- Fill out the adoption application form and answer some critical questions as a screening test.
- Interview by CARA.
- If you pass 2 and 3, CARA will schedule a visit to your home, then make necessary recommendations.
- Pay the adoption fee worth Php 800 at CARA clinic on your scheduled pick-up date.
