Ailu Cat House (Vietnam越南)

Address地址: 284 Nguyen Trong Tuyen Phu Nhuan

Hours營業時間: 8:30-23:00

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: VND 45,000 (about $2)

 

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:

A friend brought me to this relatively new cat cafe in Kuala Lumpur, and it’s definitely worth a visit. It’s bright, clean and has up to 20 friendly cats at a time. All of the cats are rescue cats and some of them can be adopted. 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.

I was just wandering around Gongguan in the alley that goes to the movie theater, when I saw some steps going up to a new cafe. Of course I had to check and see if it was perhaps a cat cafe…and it was! 我在公館逛逛, 在一個巷子裡電影遠很近, 我看到一間新的咖啡館. 我當然希望是貓咖啡, 我進去就看到貓!

DSCN3428

This cat was waiting by the door when I came in. He wasn’t very interested in visitors but he was content to be petted by anyone who came up to him.

我看到這隻貓在門口旁邊. 牠對客人沒有興趣, 但是牠會讓人摸牠.

Later, he moved over here to take a nap.

DSCN3448

The cafe has a quiet, cozy atmosphere with decorations with cats on them as well as things for cats, like this record player scratching pad. 這間咖啡館的氣氛很好, 他們有貓主題裝飾還有貓用品, 像這個電唱機.

A reader asked if there were any cat cafes in Wenshan District near the zoo and I said I didn’t think so. I heard there was one near 政大 but read that it (or one of them) had closed down. But I decided to go to the area, wander around and see for myself. This sign looked promising. 一個人問我文山區有沒有貓咖啡. 我說好像沒有. 我有聽說政大有, 但是我在網路看好像已經關門. 但是我今天去政大附近, 自己看一下. 我找到這個牌子:

DSCN3322

I went in, and there was indeed a cat! 我進去就看到貓!

DSCN3324

They said there were four, but I didn’t see any others just then. The cafe is very cute and has a nice atmosphere. 他們說有四隻. 這間很可愛, 很有氣氛.

DSCN3325 DSCN3328

They also have a good variety of reasonably priced food and drinks. I had a French duck breast pita (NT$130) and an Americano (NT$60). 他們也很便宜. 我吃法式鴨胸皮塔 (NT$130), 喝美式咖啡(NT$60).

DSCN3331

And just as I’d finished eating, two more cats came out. Both were black, one large and one small. I think they had been in the kitchen. They were very lively so it was hard to get good pictures of them. 我剛吃完, 兩隻黑貓, 一個大的一個小的, 從廚房出現. 牠們很活潑, 所以很難拍照.

Of the several cat cafes in Taichung that I went to recently, I think this is the best, especially on a nice day. The front of the cafe is completely open and the cats can lounge in the courtyard or come inside as they choose. There is seating outside, at the bar or on vintage chairs and couches inside. 我最近去好幾間貓咖啡館在台中, 覺得這間很好. 天氣好是最好.外面 有一個很可愛的天井, 貓可以跑來跑去. 人可以坐外面,在吧檯,或許在古老的沙發. 裝飾, 家具都很特別.

DSCN3282 DSCN3286

The also have lots of Betta fish around which provide entertainment for the cats. I wonder if they ever get eaten. This cat looked like he was very close to catching one! 他們也有很多Betta魚, 貓很有興趣. 這隻貓好像很想吃!

DSCN3270They serve light meals, coffee, tea and frappuccinos. I had an Oreo frappuccino (NT$170), which was very good. 他們有簡餐,咖啡,茶,冰沙. 我喝Oreo冰沙, 很好喝.

Cat cafes – overseas edition by Rebecca

Asakusa district is the historic centre of Tokyo, home to ancient Buddhist temples, geishas, traditional arts and crafts – and a fantastic cat cafe!

As you come out of Tobu Asakusa station, you should see a sign on your right pointing down the street, saying ‘Cat cafe’. A short walk will bring you to the building shown in the above photo. There’s also a billboard outside, which only the most hardhearted cat lover could resist.

After bribing my companion (not a cat lover), we headed up to the 8th floor. The lift doors open onto a small lobby, with shelves for you to put your shoes, and slippers to change into. We were greeted at the door by the manager, who let us in (while holding back an enthusiastic cat which had also come to greet us) and gave us a menu detailing prices in both English and Japanese. You can pay just to spend time with the cats (which we did), or you can also order drinks and cakes. The menu also gives a few rules: visitors are welcome to bring their own toys for the cats to play with, but should only feed them with snacks provided by the cat cafe. We were advised that the cats do not like to be picked up by strangers, but are very friendly and will come over to people. The manager then showed us a place to store our bags, gave us a hot towel for our hands followed by some hand sanitizer, and let us loose on the place!

pic3

The cafe is bright, clean and comfortable, with a very relaxing atmosphere. High above the general hubbub of Tokyo, it is an ideal place to get away from it all.

Visitors can choose from sofas or low cushions on the floor, or simply crawl about on the rugs (this is what I did). We were also provided with a picture book which shows all the cats, and gives their name, breed, and date of birth.

4 5

All the cats are pure breeds, including a breed I had never heard of before: the Munchkin.

6

As you can see by looking at the dates of birth, this cat cafe can more accurately be called a kitten cafe. Every cat was born in 2014. And, being kittens, as soon as they realized they had visitors, they began to show off (translation: fight!).

But they calmed down after a while.

My boyfriend is not what you would call a cat lover, and had been hanging back during the Fight Club. Once the cats had settled down, he sat down as well, and was quickly and enthusiastically greeted by the Norwegian forest cat. He changed his seat fairly quickly, but to no avail. Cats have an uncanny ability to seek out the person who least wishes to be their friend.

12

But even he was powerless to resist the charms of the Russian Blue!

1314

My personal favourite was this orange cat (breed? I missed their photo in the cat calendar), who was also the friendliest.

15

Cafe Monta is open every day from 11am to 8pm (last orders at 7.30pm). The manager spoke good English, and the menu is in both Japanese and English. A great place to spend a lazy afternoon!
