The Cat Museum

Carla really loves cats. She’s been wanting to adopt a cat for quite some time now, but unfortunately at the moment it’s just not possible. Fingers crossed, by the end of this year we’ll have a new house with enough space for a cat (and another cat, plus a dog, a couple of ducks, a couple of chickens and maybe a hamster…. said Carla and Renan).

Anyway, I came across this website, thecatmuseum.com.sg. I didn’t know there was a cat museum in Singapore!

So, last Saturday we decided to check out the place. We took the train to Bugis, and after a quick lunch at Bugis Junction mall, we walked to the Cat Museum which was just a quick stroll from the mall.

From the outside, the museum looked small and unassuming. Just a door sandwiched between two cafes. We had to walk up the stairs to get to the reception. Before going inside, we had to take off our shoes and put them in the locker.

We bought our tickets and one of the staff there showed us the map of the place and explained some rules, like what you could do and could not do with the cats.

As you can see on the map, the first level is the museum, where you can enjoy a collection of art, craft and photos… all featuring cats, of course!

There were a few cats too in the room, so we stayed a bit to play with them.

The second level is where they keep most of the cats. There is a room called Kitten Kindergarten, where they keep the very young ones. All of the cats and kittens there are adoptable.

The Kitten Kindergarten was Carla and Renan’s favourite room. They couldn’t stop playing with the cute kittens, especially  this tiny one in the photo that was recently rescued along with her three siblings.

The third level is where the nine permanent resident cats live. They were all napping when we got there, so we didn’t stay long. What gorgeous cats!

We went back to the Kitten Kindergarten and played a bit more with the cute kittens before going home. Carla and Renan were very happy…. Carla couldn’t stop talking about the cats on the way home.
