Cats are a no-no for me because I’m allergic – but I know some of ya’ll love to be surrounded by cats. However, what if we combine cats and our favourite drink of the day – coffee? Cat cafes are among the most sought-out cafes these days, proving that the best pairing of a kitty is with a cuppa.
So, if you’re wishing to feel some feline loving while still getting your daily dose of caffeine, here are our top picks of cat cafes around the Klang Valley.
Good Meowning Cafe
Get a load of some adorable furry felines at Good Meowning Cafe! These poofy bundles of fluff are super outgoing and friendly and you can be instant besties with them. All cuddles and fluff all over your face that you literally cannot get enough of. You’ll have 30 minutes for RM7 to be in this cafe – the more you pay, the longer you stay – and the premises is divided into two sections: a dining area with open air seating and a play area with enclosed seating for the kitty cats.
Address: Good Meowning Cafe, 1, Jalan Suasana 2/7a, Tun Hussein Onn, 43200 Batu 9 Cheras, Selangor
Purradise Cat Café
This laid-back café, hidden in an attic alcove in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, makes you want to snuggle up like a cat as well. Purradise Cat cafe is home to 20 cats – both rescued and adopted – and are free to wander around in the premises, displaying each of their eccentric personalities. They serve up some of the most wonderful smoothies as well, and the rates for this cat cafe are: RM18 for an hour and RM49 for a full day. I’d say go for a full day to experience all the fluffy feline glory!

Superstar Pet Studio
It’s kitties galore over at Superstar Pet Studio, with its array of cat breeds – from British Shorthair to American Curl – jumping around and pawing at you for your attention. What was once a photoshoot studio for cats is now a cat paradise that sells Western cuisine and even costumes for cats. If you’re a lover of all things feline and live in Shah Alam, this place is the right fit for you.

Si Tompok Cafe
Of course, we could never forget kitty lovers in Bangi. Si Tompok Cafe has been highly praised for its excellent customer service, top-notch food and some friendly felines to accompany their customers. Once you’ve finished your meal – the cafe serves up mostly Western delights – you can have some fun time with the kitties and be bombarded by their poofy fur. If you merely want to visit the cat studio without eating, the cost is RM10 for adults and RM6 for youngsters per hour.
