Do you remember one of my previous blog post named Meet Nine Lives Cat Cafe? When I was writing that post, I just did some researches about Nine Lives Cat Cafe instead of visiting the place in person. But this time, I spent a sunny afternoon for visiting Nine Lives Cat Cafe and feeling the special atmosphere of cats and cafe. For me, a cat lover and a coffee lover, this new style lets me feel enjoyable and relaxed.
After I went inside the cat cafe, I quickly checked in with the staff because I wanted to see these lovely cats as soon as possible. Their cats were in a separate room. And everyone would use the sanitizer to clean hands before they went into the cat room. Then, I found that there were 5 to 6 different kinds of cats playing with customers, relaxing in their small beds, or eating. I began to take pictures of how they lived in this special home and how they interacted with customers. The staff who was responsible for taking care of cats and customers’ safety also talked about adoptions when I was in the cat room.
Everyone could only stay in the cat room for one hour. After one hour, you could choose to stay in the table area or leave. When you sit outside the cat room, you could also watch them through the glass wall. I did a short interview with the manager of Nine Lives Cat Cafe after I went outside the cat room. She talked about more details about this cafe, including where the cats came from, information about coffee and bakery, and their general future plans.
In addition, I did another interview with one of my friends named Linyao, who went to this cat cafe with me. During the interview, she talked about how staying with cats bring her happiness.
In order to record this experience, I made a slideshow for this short visit. You can see pictures of cats and cafe environment from my slideshow. And you can also find more information from what the manager, staff, and Linyao said during the slideshow.
