The twins love harassing playing with our friends’ cat, so we thought they might enjoy visiting the cats at The Cat Cabin in Kemang. It took us longer than expected to get there, thanks to road closures and bad traffic, but I’m glad we didn’t decide to turn back and cancel our trip there, because all of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there.
The Cat Cabin
Meet the Cats
The cafe was very clean, and the cats all looked healthy and well-groomed. There was plenty of space for them to roam around, and the cats seemed very comfortable on the various structures and seating areas.

Can you spot the cat hiding in this structure?
The cat did not seem happy to be found
The kids were really excited to see so many cats, and had a great time going around trying to pat every single one of them. Most of the cats were quite calm and tolerated the attention showered upon them by the kids, though one or two did try to swat them away. The cats which didn’t want to hang out in the cafe area would retreat into the staff area through an opening in the wall, and the twins spent some time crouching there watching the cats eat and chill.
Come out, cats!
There was a really cute cat that loved drinking from the tap, and it would wait by the sinks for someone to turn the tap on.
N spent a lot of time trying to coax the cats down from their perches or out from their hiding places. He really liked them, and was very gentle with them. He asked to carry one of the cats, and one of the staff kindly helped him to hold one of the friendlier cats.

Carrying a cat
The twins were very busy trying to pat the cats, and thankfully, they were generally quite gentle with the cats. It was such a joy seeing their faces light up when they were able to pat some of the cats.

Meimei thought this was a real cat! Haha.
C and I got to carry some of the cats too, and they were so nice and cuddly! I found it quite therapeutic to just stroke the cats and scratch behind their ears because their fur was really soft.

Happy smiley faces (apart from the cat, I mean)
It was an hour well spent, and I think we definitely won’t mind returning to The Cat Cabin to hang out with the cats again.
