Studies have shown that pets can reduce stress and anxiety. And boy do we need that after going through MCO. Here are 5 cat and dog cafés where you can make new paw pals, brighten your day, and feel your heart melt!
1. Purradise Cat Café
Hidden in an upstairs nook at Taman Tun Dr Ismail, this laidback café makes you feel like curling up like a cat too. Purradise Cat Café is home to 18 adopted and rescued cats, each with their own quirks and personalities.
They have two basic rates: RM18 for an hour, and RM49 for full day feline access. You get to choose a drink from the menu. We tried a couple of the aptly punny smoothies: Kitty on a Tree (Banana, Milk, Oat & Honey) and Purr by the Beach (Pineapple, Mango & Honey). Both are refreshing and fruity.; we personally prefer Kitty on a Tree.
On your first visit, you’ll be told which resident cats are friendly and cuddly, as well as which you should approach with caution. Luckily, most of them are easy to play with. Add the relaxing ambiance and it feels like ‘cat therapy’ already!

2. Good Meowning Café
Good Meowning Café was founded out of Nor Aziyah’s passion towards cats. According to her, this is her way of creating awareness towards pet welfare and the commitment it takes to adopt pets. Opened since 2016, she has 35 cats of 16 different species, some of which are rare in Malaysia.
Munchkin, Siamese, Cornish Rex, Oriental, Abyssinian and Sphynx Cats are some of the special ones you’d be able to find. Don’t be surprised to find a few brave little fellas warming up to you instantly – it didn’t take long for the Sphynx Cat to start kneading on our laps.
Cats aside, there is a pet shop in front, grooming centre and a cafe serving local cuisine. The Nasi Goreng Sambal Hitam (RM6) is recommended for its spicy kick and Pahang-style flavour.

Okay, so you won’t really drown in them, but many of the furry friends at Seri Talam are gentle and up for cuddles. The cafe also offers medical services and refuge for cats.

4. Café Clawset
Balls of fluff start racing towards you the moment you step into Café Clawset. The chilled setting is great for hanging out with friends and fur babies, with canines like the Pomeranian, Poodle, Pug and French Bull. You may also come across a British Short Hair Cat with a look that could challenge Grumpy Cat. They do have other breeds like the Dachshund, which they would take turns to bring in.
You’ll need to order a meal or drink to spend your time here. Try the Clawset Signature Chicken Chop for a crispy chicken slice paired with mushroom sauce. There are also fruity mocktails like Mighty Super (strawberry + orange + passionfruit + lime soda), Arrogant Chiko (passionfruit + lemon + lime) and Obedient Dolly (peach + orange + lime).
It’s heavenly for dog lovers here as the resident pets are way too cute to be true. Spot the manja one who would hop on your lap and never let go – such a heartthrob!
