List of Cat Cafes in Metro Manila
As a traveler for several years now, I have a vast reserve of energy and enthusiasm. The thrill of seeing new places, spaces, and faces motivates me to keep my legs moving and my schedule busy. But sometimes, I get burnout too. That’s why I also spend time looking for more creative ways to unwind.
Recently, I discovered a… purr-fect way to relax during my me time weekends, and that is to spend some time in a cat café! Sleeping in and lying down in bed all day is one good way to relax on any day, but nothing beats a Cat-urday with a cup of coffee or two with our purr-y friends. I’m a fan of coffee but I’m a bigger fan of cats. If you want to paws and reflect on you ever-busy life, or maybe fur-get all your worries for a moment, read on. Here’s a list of the cat cafes in Metro Manila that you need to cat out right meow:

Notes and tips:
- Before visiting a cat café, make sure to consult their website or social media accounts for reservations. Some cafés in the list, like Cat Café Manila, encourage reservations as they limit the number of people who can stay in the cat play area per hour, in consideration of the felines.
- Minimize your noise when entering the playground or lounge where the cats are. Cats dislike noisy environments and make them anxious. You don’t want the cats to feel bad.
- Some don’ts: Do not feed the cats with any of the food you purchase in the café area; do not wake them up when they are sleeping (they can get grumpy!), and do not carry them forcibly to you. Also, take note that some cafés do not allow the customers to touch the cats directly.
- Cats are very photogenic creatures! But make sure to turn off the flash when taking pictures of them. Sudden bright flashes cause cats discomfort, just like us when taking a selfie and we forget to turn off the flash. Yikes!
Enjoy your time, and have a purr-fect weekend!
