I visited Japan’s cat cafe many years back and it is one of my dreams to open a cat cafe so that I can be surrounded by many kitties!! Last year, many cat cafes popped out in Singapore (one business minded owner screwed up and made every so angry and upset.. arghh!) but I have yet to visit any. Actually I feel like I am living in a Cat Cafe anyway with 4 kitties! <3
I am super happy to visit the Cat Museum & Mansion because it is not just a Cat Cafe that you just go and play with the cats, but much much more meaningful. (Actually the other Cat Cafes in Singapore helped with the adoption for the cats too!! Let me find out more first)!
Let me share with you a little background of the The Cat Museum & Mansion!
Singapore is also known as Singapura, the city nation is named after the largest cat, the lion (“Singa” means lion and “Pura” means town or city). Lion City KittyTM – The CAT MUSEUM, MUSES & MANSION pays tribute to the cats of Singapore by tracing the history of local Malayan cats, cats that came on ships with our forefathers from India and China, the arrival of British cats during the colonization period and Japanese cats during occupation,and develops a hypothesis of what is affectionately branded as the Lion City KittyTM – the Singapore resident
Says Jessica Seet, the founder who has set up Lion City KittyTM, “Our mission as a social enterprise is to change the community’s mindset towards cats and animals, and to create an interest in our local kitties who, like us, are the descendants of their ‘pawfathers’. We also want to inspire our local artistic community to create art around the real cats on our premises, and find homes for the orphaned kitties, while working closely with the Cat Welfare Society in Singapore.”
On Level 3, you will meet the kitties that are looking for their forever home!! PLEASE ADOPT, STERLISE AND DON’T ABANDON!!!!!!!! <3
My 5 kitties are all adopted, Kiyo Angel (found in my secondary school), Rara was adopted from Catwelfare (12 years ago!), KingKing (found by my friend), Kylila and MetMet (my sister adopted Kylila from the cat shelter and MetMet found outside her house in Doha. Both are flown into Singapore)!
Do visit the Cat Museum to see if any of the cat chooses you! It is true that the cat chooses you instead of you choosing it. You will know what I mean when you meet THE CAT! 😛 HOWEVER, one thing to REMIND you that having a cat (or any animal) is a long commitment…. DO NOT ADOPT if you cannot commit! I will refer this as a marriage. 😛 I am married to 5 catsssssss! #crazycatlady
I WISH I WISH I CAN BRING THEM ALL HOME!!!!!!!!!! (I will try to arrange my schedule and see if I have time to volunteer!!! *_*)
And so I cried when I read the story of Georgie and his friend. ;( I am really a cat person instead of a person person…
I want to add CAT LANGUAGE to my resume… lol!! I only managed to get 2 photos of the kitties waiting for adoption!! CHECK THE CUTIES OUT! <3
There is also a Singapore map of kitties living in Singapore! I already emailed the Cat Museum and do let me know if you see my 4 babies’ photo. 😛
Now now… are you excited to meet the world famous super cats at the Mansion on Level 4?! *BRACE YOURSELF FOR CUTENESS OVERLOAD* The Mansion on the top floor is a beautiful sprawling playground that is specially set for the lucky ones who found their forever home – complete with toys, scratching posts, and invisible grills to keep them safe indoors.
This is indeed a Kitty’s paradise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Firstly, let us meet the boys!!!!!!! Here is Harry the Cat’s Museum’s Mascot!!! He is a really shy boy but I managed to take a photo of him looking at my camera even though he was hiding behind his litter house! 🙂
Here is Gerogie, the 13 year-old senior citizen~~ I also managed to catch a glimpse of him before he fell a sleep again. 😛
Hi Usher~~~~ same like Gerogie, I managed to take a photo of him before he fell asleep. XD I always feel very sentimental and heartache whenever I see a perfect Tabby…. my Kiyo Angel lookalike… I miss you my baby Kiyo <3
Here is Braddie, the one I wanted to see the most!!!!! I think I chose a wrong time to visit as it was 230pm and the kitties are mostly napping… lol.
Next up, let me introduce you to the baby girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Here is little cutie Shakira~ Isn’t she just super adorable!!!
What long legs you have~~~~~~~
Here is my favourite Julia on the cat tree!!!!! She has such a sweet angelic face!!!!!!
In the Cat Museum, a #MEOWFIE is a MUST!!! Thank you sweetheart for the selfie~~~ 😀 😀 😀 😀
Last but not least, I want you to meet the 2 sisters~~~ Maine Coon Angie and Jen Jen!! <3 I CAN’T BELIEVE that they are abandoned by their heartless breeders… :'( They are too beautiful to be abandoned and so are all the cats and animals in the world!!!
Angie here is the only active kitty during my visit. LOL!! She has a really sweet temper, letting us pet her and posing for photos!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
You are a beauty, Angie!!
Yay!!!! Another #MEOWFIE (ok, not really meowfie…lol) with Beauty Angie~~~~~~~~~ look at how gentle she is!!!!!!!!!!!!! *SAYANG NON-STOP*

And then she changed place!!!!! *MELTSSSSSSSSSS* She looks like a Princess~~~~ she is the colourful version of Kylila. LOL!!!!!
Sorry Princess, I took your photo when you are grooming. 😛
Since she is so so cute, I cannot resist a photo with her even though she was sleeping. :PPPP
One more thing I want to share with you is the gallery of ‘Famous Felines’ – cats that have inspired imagination and adoration through popular culture and the internet such as Puss in Boots, Garfield and Grumpy Cat.
I spent some time at the staircase and suddenly realized that the MOST FAMOUS CAT in the world is missing from the gallery…… and it is none other than Miss Hello Kitty!!!!!!!! :’) :’) :’)
And to my friends, I don’t actually like Hello Kitty and the one I like is her pet, Charmmy Kitty!!! :’) :’) :’)
I hope you enjoyed my little tour and let me share with you some lovely cat quotes~~~
I admit that I love the company of cats more than purrson~~~~~~ sorry people. HAHA!! and then it is time for Kitty Nap~~~~ zzzzzZZZZZzzzZZZZZz~~ <3
