This was the third pet cafe I went to in Vietnam, and it is home to more than 20 cats, mostly purebred. There are many Maine Coons, a Siamese and a few mixed breeds. This cafe has a ‘cuddle fee’ of VND45,000 and drinks are optional. 這是我去的第三間越南寵物咖啡. 他們有20幾隻貓, 大部分是品種的. 有很多緬因貓, 一隻暹羅貓, 還有一些米克斯. 咖啡館有門票費VND45,000, 不需要點飲料.

The cafe is well-lit and has plenty of open space as well as lots of places for the cats to climb, play and hide. 店裡很亮, 有很多空間還有很多地方貓可以玩.

The cats were not as friendly as at Ailu Cat House but they didn’t mind being petted. The cafe is very clean and doesn’t smell at all. It has a quiet atmosphere and quite a few people had brought computers, happy to work/study surrounded by sleeping cats. 貓咪不怕人, 但是對人沒有興趣, 只要睡覺. 有很多貓, 還是很乾淨沒有味道. 環境很安靜, 很多人用電腦, 開心有貓陪他們.

This dog cafe has about 25 friendly dogs on two floors. When I first went in, they showed me into the room on the first floor. It’s open in the center for the dogs to run around and has benches around the walls for people to sit on and shelves for them to put drinks. I ordered an iced tea and went to play with the dogs. 這間狗咖啡有大概25隻很可愛的狗, 有兩樓. 我剛進去, 店員帶我去一樓的房間. 中間失控的, 狗可以玩. 有長椅子客人可以坐還有架子可以放杯子. 我點冰紅茶, 繼續跟狗玩.

They had a Chinese Crested dog, a rare hairless breed that I’d only seen pictures of before. It was very sweet and friendly, and it soon curled up on my lap. 他們有一隻很特別的無毛狗,中過冠毛犬. 牠很可愛, 很喜歡人. 牠快來坐在我身上.

After a while, the staff asked if I wanted to go to the second floor. The second floor had even more dogs than the first, mostly large ones. 晚一點, 店員說我可以去二樓. 二樓有更多狗, 還有比較大的狗.

They were all beautiful, and I especially liked the big husky. This isn’t the kind of cafe where one could work or quietly sip a coffee, but it’s a great place to see and play with lots of different kinds of dogs. 多很漂亮, 我很喜歡一隻很大的哈士奇. 這種咖啡不適合工作, 安靜喝咖啡, 但是一個很好的地方跟很多不一樣的狗玩.

When I took a trip to Vietnam, of course I had to see if they had cat cafes. I thought it was unlikely, but to my surprise, they had a few! This cafe has three floors, with the first floor being a Japanese restaurant, the second a cat cafe and the third a dog cafe (not much to the dog cafe, just a room with three little dogs). The cat cafe has 19 adorable, friendly cats.

我剛去越南, 我一定要看他們有沒有貓咖啡. 我想應該沒有, 但是我找到幾間! 這間有三樓: 一樓是日式餐廳, 二樓是貓咖啡, 三樓是狗咖啡 (狗咖啡其實沒有什麼, 只是一個空間有三隻小狗) 貓咖啡有19很可愛的貓咪.

One cat sat on my table. They told me his name was ‘dog’ in Vietnamese because he acts like a dog. I ordered an avocado smoothie (VND 60,000) and that was very good. 一隻貓坐在我桌子上. 店員說他的名字是’狗’應為牠個性像狗. 我點一個鱷梨冰沙.

The cafe seemed very clean and there were lots of places for the cats to play. It did have a bit of a smell, but the staff were in the process of cleaning. 咖啡裡面看起來很乾淨, 有很多地方貓可以玩. 有一點貓尿味道, 但是店員一直在清理.

They had a couple of kittens that were a few months old and some very tiny ones that were still with their mother. 他們有兩個小貓, 還有一些剛出生的小貓跟他們的媽媽在一起.

This was a very nice cafe and it seems like the staff really care about the cats. Here are more pictures of the cats我很喜歡這間,好像店員很關心貓:

When we went in, this fluffy cat was on the counter and it stayed there the whole time 我朋友帶我去這間吉隆坡的貓咖啡, 我覺得非常好. 很亮,很乾淨, 有大概20隻貓. 全部的貓以前是流浪貓, 一些可以被領養的. 我們進去的時候這隻貓躺在櫃檯, 一直留在這裡:

The whole place is an ideal cat playground, with shelves all around the walls for the cats to jump and climb on 這個地方很適合讓貓玩得很開心, 我很多地方牠們可以跳爬上去.

Most of the seating is beanbag chairs, although there is one area with a desk built into the wall and plugs for computers/chargers. The cats like the beanbag chairs. 大部分的坐位是豆袋椅, 但是還有一個地方有插座,人可以用電腦, 充電. 貓喜歡豆袋椅.

They also have lots of artificial grass for the cats to play and sleep on. 也有很多’草’貓可以玩, 睡覺.

There are lots of cat trees around and all the cats seemed friendly and happy. 這邊的貓也以前都是流浪貓. 我沒有很多時間但是毛都很可愛, 看起來很開心, 有很多’樹’牠們可以爬.

This cat cafe was Singapore’s first, opened about a year and a half ago. All of the cats were rescue cats, and the owners selected them carefully and took several months making sure the cats were adapted to living together in this environment. Coincidentally, this cafe’s name means Cat Garden, the same as the first cat cafe in Taiwan (貓花園). Entrance costs SGD$12 per hour and $5 for every half hour after that; ordering drinks or desserts is optional. All of the cats are beautiful and friendly. They have an introduction to the cats there and also on their website: http://www.catcafe.com.sg/cafe-cats/. 這間貓咖啡館是新加坡第一個, 大概1.5年前開業. 貓都以前是流浪貓, 老闆都特別選牠們. 開業好幾個月前先決定貓習慣這個環境. 碰巧的是Neko no Niwa的意思也是貓花園, 像台灣第一個貓咖啡. 門票是SGD$12/小時, 每半小時以後加SGD$5. 貓多很漂亮, 很可愛. 咖啡的網站介紹所有的貓的故事: http://www.catcafe.com.sg/cafe-cats/

My favorite cat was the cuddly, playful Brown Monkey 我最喜歡的是Brown Monkey:

DSCN5072 DSCN5090I also really liked Baloo, named after the bear from the Jungle Book, who may be the biggest cat I have ever seen. He really looks like a bear! 我也很喜歡Baloo (一個故事裡的雄的名字). 他可能是我看過的最大的貓. 真的看起來很像熊!

DSCN5074

And this little white one, Emma, the smallest is adorable too–all of them are! 這隻很小, 很優雅的白色貓也很可愛! 牠們都超可愛!

DSCN5081

I had a black coffee since I was planning to stay up all night at the airport; their specialty is hot chocolate and I’d like to try that if I go back.  It was nice to talk with the owners and see how much they care about cats. They started the cafe in memory of their cat who died of cancer, and they want to use the cafe to promote adoption and to educate people about cat care. If you visit Singapore, I’d recommend visiting this cafe!因為我要在機場熬夜, 我喝黑咖啡. 他們的招牌是熱巧克力. 我覺得很有趣跟老闆(一對夫妻)聊天, 看他們怎麼關心貓. 他們想開貓咖啡紀念他們去世的貓. 他們希望更多人會領養貓, 幫助流浪貓. 他們也想教人怎麼照顧好貓. 如果你去新加坡, 我很推薦這間.
