Cat Cafe (21 Jun 2014)

The first Cat Cafe "Neko no Niwa" in Singapore. Similar to the ones I've visited in Seoul, South Korea, there are restrictions such as no carrying of the kitties, disturbing their sleep etc. As cats sleep most of the time in the day, the best time to visit is probably in the late evening or at night when they are more active.
