Three Cats Cafe 三貓小舖

20 Feb

Three Cats Cafe 三貓小舖

Address 地址: 台北市大同區赤峰街53巷14號

Hours 營業時間: 11:30-20:00

I haven’t posted since my book was published, partly because I’ve already been to most of the cat cafes in Taiwan and partly because I’ve moved to Malaysia. However, I just went back to Taiwan for a short trip and my friend told me about a new cat cafe between Zhongshan and Shuanglian stations. There’s no minimum drink purchase as this is also a shop with lots of cat-themed items, so people are free to browse.

我很久沒寫. 我出書之後, 我搬到馬來西亞, 還有我已經去過大部分的台灣貓咖啡. 但是我最近回來台灣幾天. 我朋友跟我說有一間新的貓咖啡在中山/雙連附近. 沒有最低消費因為他們賣很多貓主題東西, 可以進去逛.

There are actually five cats, not three as the name suggests. The name is the name of their brand and they were selling cat-themed items before they started the cafe. Two of the cats are friendly and three are shy. The long haired grey one was very friendly. The tabby was timid and wouldn’t let anyone pet her, but she was fascinated by my cat ears hat. She seemed to think it was a real cat. 三貓小舖是他們牌子的名字, 咖啡裡有五隻貓. 兩隻喜歡人, 三隻比較害羞. 一隻很喜歡我的帽子. 牠很怕人, 但是牠好像以為我的帽子是一隻貓!

The two cats not pictured were an orange and white cat and a black kitten. My friends and I just had tea as the cafe was going to close in less than an hour. The menu has the usual coffee and tea selections and some desserts. The shop has a large selection of adorable shirts, bags, stationery, wall hangings, coasters and more. 還有一隻黑色小貓, 一隻橘色的, 我沒有拍到. 我們隻喝茶因為咖啡館快要關門. 菜單有咖啡, 茶, 點心. 他們的商品非常可愛, 有很多很特別的東西.

Address 地址: 221/2 Tran Quang Khai, Tan Dinh

Hours 營業時間: 10:30-22:00

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.

2016 Taipei Pet Fair 2016春季寵物展

2 Apr

DSCN78272016 Taipei Pet Fair 2016春季寵物展

Dates: April 1-4 2016 四月1-4

Address 地址: Taipei World Trade Center Hall 3 (World Trade Center MRT Exit 1 捷運世貿1號出口)

Tickets 門票: NT$150 on site, free from their website 在網路免費 https://pet-fair.top-link.com.tw/

I just found out about this today and went. It’s still open for two more days 4/3-4. The Taipei pet fair has animal charity booths, pets for adoption, pet supplies, pet portrait booths and a cat show. The cat show is only Saturday and Sunday, so I’d recommend going on Sunday if possible. When I went today, they had the Sphynx cat cage open and let people pet them. The cat show isn’t just for purebreds; they also have mixed breed cats and a cat adoption booth. 我今天剛發現有這個活動. 還有兩天, 4/3-4. 2016台北春季寵物展有幫流浪動物義賣貨攤, 可領養的動物, 寵物用品, 寵物攝影貨攤還有一個貓展. 貓展至是4/2-3, 所以我推薦去禮拜天. 今天他們有打開斯芬克斯貓的籠子, 讓人摸牠們. 貓展不只是品種貓, 還有米克斯還有一些可以領養的貓,

Many people brought their own pets (not allowed inside the cat show area) and it was fun to see all of them, mostly dogs. A few people did bring cats, though. One girl had one around her neck and a guy was carrying one in something like a baby Snugli (like this). Someone brought a rabbit in a carrier and a girl had a bird on her shoulder. I couldn’t take many pictures because it was so crowded. I got one of these two cats calmly sitting on their carrier. 好多人帶自己的寵物 (但是寵物不可進去貓展區), 很好玩看到牠們, 大部分是狗. 一些人有帶貓. 一個女生帶貓在她脖子上, 一個男生抱貓在前面的包包跟小孩一樣 (這樣) 一個人帶一隻兔子, 一個女生帶貓在肩膀張. 很難拍照因為人超多. 我拍一個, 這兩隻貓, 好像很放鬆

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.

This is a relatively new cat cafe in Kaohsiung, which just opened a year ago. They also have a branch in Tainan. The cafe is clean and brightly lit and has five cats and one dog.

There’s plenty of seating and free wifi. 這間貓咖啡在高雄市新的, 一年前開業. 他們還有一間在台南. 咖啡館很乾淨很亮. 他們有5隻貓, 一隻狗. 貓都比較輕鬆, 狗有時候會兇, 好像他不太喜歡貓. 咖啡館有二樓, 所以有很多位置. 他們也有wifi.

This fat orange cat (named Orange) was one of my favorites, and the staff say he’s the friendliest. 我很喜歡這個胖的橘色貓(他的名字是橘子), 店員說他是最親人的貓.

This is the dog. He looks cute and he lets people pet him, but he growled and tried to start fights with the cats several times. They said he was in a bad mood that day. 這是店狗. 他看起來可愛, 也會讓人摸牠, 但是他對貓嗥叫還要跟他們吵架. 店員說他當天心情不好.

This Tainan cat cafe wasn’t in either of the books, but it has more cats than any of the others in Tainan and is very clean and well-designed. It has about twelve beautiful, friendly cats. Three of them immediately came to check out our bags. 這間是在台南有罪多貓的咖啡館, 還有很乾淨, 環境很好. 有大概12隻漂亮, 可愛的貓. 我們進去, 三隻來檢查包包.

DSCN4908 DSCN4909

I ordered an AT Cats & Tea coffee (NT$110) and my friend had a black tea (NT$100). Since he is particularly averse to cat germs, he was glad to see the clever lid on the cup, with a space that just fit the straw. The cafe also has light meals and desserts for reasonable prices. 我點AT Cats & Tea招牌咖啡 (NT$110), 我朋友點紅茶 (NT$100). 我朋友很怕貓毛, 覺得很髒, 所以她很開心看到他的杯子有蓋子. 咖啡, 茶都好喝. 菜單也有簡餐, 點心.

 Some cats like coming up to customers and hanging out by the tables and others prefer to stay in the cat trees near the window. 有些貓喜歡來客人的桌子, 有些喜歡喜歡趟在窗裡的 “樹”.

DSCN4920Another cat sat on top of a chair at a nearby table and watched people with an evil glare as he extended his claws. Despite his appearance, he really doesn’t mind being petted, though. 一隻貓看起來很兇, 看他的臉, 他的爪子, 但是他還是讓人模他.

DSCN4930DSCN4936

This cafe has a nice atmosphere and beautiful cats. They also have wi-fi, so it would be a good place to work or study. 我很推薦這間, 貓很好, 環境很好, 還有他們有wi-fi.
