One of the thing I was looking forward to in our recent Melbourne trip was a visit to Cat Cafe Melbourne. I know, there is a Catmosphere here in Sydney that we haven’t even visited all this time (duh!!). But, this time around in Melbourne, we would definitely make a reservation to visit this cat cafe; especially because it is located in the CBD and not far at all from our hotel.
The Cat Cafe opens daily from 10am – 1pm and then reopens again 2pm – 6pm. And we booked a one-hour session starting at 10am, hoping the cats would be awake and more playful than in the afternoon. And boy we were wrong, most of them were actually sleeping hehehe. A few walked around or hid inside boxes and tunnels. The staffs said it might be due to the weather, it was cloudy and cold and grey; honestly I was sleepy too 😛
Here are some pictures of the cat residents of Cat Cafe Melbourne:
There are two rooms for the cats: upstairs is a bigger room where most cats were there on our visit; also where you can order your food and drinks. Downstairs is a smaller room or what they called social room – there is Wii console and TV in this room.
It was really fun to be here and plays with the cats. But, these cats being already centre of attention all day everyday; you would expect them to be quite ignorant to humans. Apart from that, I enjoy the quietness in here and look at those cats taking their time to play or sleep. Probably is a good place to reflects and get away from everyday stress/routines.
