Mia's Bangkok Travelogue: Cat Cafe by Lila

Yes, I know. I've already visited a Caturday Cat Cafe on the first day of my Bangkok trip and here's yet another Bangkok cat cafe review! 
This wasn't a planned visit at all, for I didn't even know they exist. It just so happened that Cat Cafe by Lila is located right opposite Alpaca View Restaurant, so right after our dinner there, we decided to drop by to play with some cats before we return to our hotel. 





As compared to Caturday, Cat Cafe by Lila is more... rundown, I would say? You probably wouldn't even notice it if they didn't have the luminous signboard that says: Cat Cafe. 
The interior is cute, but still pretty small. It kind of reminds me of Meomi Cat Cafe, but with less well groomed cats and less friendly staff. 

There's about 19 cats introduced on their menu, but many weren't around while we were there. 

Their cat rules looks totally hand-drawn and written, and it's so adorable! So tempted to nick one back home.... But of course, I didn't lah. 

Because we just had a large dinner, we decided to just grab and drink and so, Hot Honey Milk it is! It's a little too sweet for me (overdosed on honey?) and at one point, one of the cat got too greedy and stole a sip at my milk and subsequently I found cat hair floating in my cup, so.... yeah. 
NEXT. 
It's a cat cafe, so let's focus on their cats, shall we? 

In spite of us visiting at night (about 9pm after our dinner at Alpaca View), most of the cats are still sleeping and doesn't really us a hoot. 
 "I sleep..."

 "I sleep...."

"And I sleep, sleep sleep..."

Those who are perfectly awake, are mostly aloof...
 "Go away, human!"

Or, poorly groomed.
This tiny kitten has very bad tear stains on her face, and I'm not sure if she's still having some sort of eye infection or not. But she's the most playful kitten of the lot that night though.

And you can watch her in action. Video was taken at the end, so she was already calming down/getting tired of playing though.


And then there's this lazy kitty who really reminded me of Junior at Meomi Cat Cafe! They have the same napping pose!


Like, exactly the same belly up, paws in the air pose! So funny!

Now, will I recommend this cat cafe? Sad to speak, no. 
It's really out of the way, and unless it's just a drop by to chill after playing with the alpacas across the road thing, this cafe is really not worth the hassle. 
And if you really wish to visit this cafe, you can find out how to get there by following the directions to Alpaca View restaurant stated HERE.

Till then,
Mia Foo

  3. A Cat Cafe! I think I've heard of one opening here in Manila as well. Cats are well-behaved and easier to travel with, I guess that's why there are more cat owners than dog owners who I see going out with their respective pets. Cats are so fluffy and cute, I hope our kitten stays that way haha.

  4. Cat cafes and dog cafes, pet cafes are really trending now. While dog cafes are full of fun and exciting, given the very indifferent nature of cats can you also play with them in a cat cafe? I'm really quite curious!

  5. The owners of the cafe must be great lovers of cats as well. The cats here look very cute and it's nice to know that they are properly groomed. It's also quite expensive to maintain their health as they need to get checkups regularly with the vet.

  13. Cats are not too easy to take care of because they have a mind of their own. You need a lot of patience to take proper care of cats so that they do not make a smelly mess especially for a public cafe like this.

  18. Love these felines! haven't been to Bangko but this is in my bucket list so will surely consider visiting this lovely cafe.

  19. Based on your posts, Caturday Cat Cafe seems like a better cafe in terms of the interiora and the different kinds of cat they have in store for their customers. Though the cats here are also cute, this cafe is a bit more like just a regular house full of cute domestic cats. But I must say, i love the mug with a cat's head as a handle. :p
