The first cat cafe in Singapore opened on Christmas Day, 2013. Called Cat Cafe Neko no Niwae and located in Boat Quay, it has 13 cats, each once abandoned, unloved and malnourished.
By opening the cafe, owner Tan Sue Lynn, 36, hopes to give these cats the love and attention they had missed out on. In return, guests get to bring home memories of a purring, contented cat.
