Miao Cat Café is located above the Cakes2Go building along congressional avenue. It was a bit difficult to park as they are still working on the parking scheme. I decided however to make a U-turn to KFC and just parked there and crossed the street to Miao Cat Cafe. In the mornings they are allowed to park in a certain area but since i could only go there late I had a hard time with parking.
There are no signs outside of the place but you’ll see a quaint entrance to the left sude of the cakes2go store. It was a surprise to see that there was such a place in such a small building. They have a set of house rules before entering in the area where you disinfect and remove your shoes. I love the friendly cat jungle they have. They also have outdoor seating and cats just freely roam around and sleep on the floors and chairs and small holes.
The sisters Loida and Sam who put up this cat cafe are especially fond of cats. I was quite impressed with their knowledge of cats. I would suggest that you talk to them a lot, it is because of them that my boyfriend can now touch a cat. They go to china every month and they always visit cat cafes, I have a feeling that they are really cat lovers or cat crazy but in a good way. Their love for cats is what they would like to share with this cafe, they want to convert every cat hater into a cat lover.

Date & Time:
Number of guest:
They are open everyday at 11am-1pm, 2pm-4pm, 5pm-7pm and 8pm-10pm
When I asked them why they close between hours, they said its mostly because they it takes a while for them to clean up. They only alot 15 guests at most within the 2 hours also so that it does not get overcrowded in the place. They also don’t want the number of people to outnumber the number of cats. 15 cats and 15 people, just so that there are enough of them going around.
The cats also went through a “Cat Screening” of some sort. They only chose the friendly and very playful cats. Since there are also some very moody unpredictable cats.
The rates are Php 300 for Adults (Including Food and a drink), Php 150 for kids (with unlimited drinks) You can choose anything from the menu that they have. Their food and drink selection was very simple. I was more distracted with the cats that I forgot to think about eating. I had the yogurt milkshake, i loved it! And my boyfriend got the milky chocolate and mac and cheese. They also have a big selection of cupcakes and cookies that you can try. I also had a potato salad with cheese, really simple and good food.
I love the concept and the interior of their cafe. Its one way to de-stress after a long day at work or in school. They have cats from Arizona, Kazakhstan, Moscow and some were adopted. The place is someplace you would love to come back to, because you could see their love for their cats. To the point that they are even particular with exposing them to sick individuals.
It is nice that they are trying to somehow also make people more accustomed to cats, as there aren’t much cat lovers around the Philippines. If you are not much of a cat lover, coming here might just change your mind.
