There are different kinds of crazy. While it’s a term we do not tolerate to refer to people with mental health illnesses, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with going cray cray for our furry feline friends. Going nuts for your kitties can actually be good for your mental wellness — they’re wonderful companions and they can even help you sleep better (studies from the UK show that women prefer to sleep with their cat than with their partners. Who needs a boyfriend when you have a lovely furball?!).
Whether you’re a certified cat lover or you just want to snuggle with these curious creatures, there’s a purr-fect new place near Tagaytay for precious bonding time with them. From the same owners of The Pet Cafe by Velvet Friends in Pasay City, Tabby Town Cat Cafe brought these adorable cats from all over the world to the breezy south (yes, they fly in their cats). The quaint cafe is located just along the Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road, perfect for a pitstop before the land of pineapples and buko tarts.
For PHP200 an hour, you get free iced tea and exclusive access to the cat room on the second floor, where some 20+ cats are hanging out in their turf. Don’t forget to bring a pair of socks! You can also order from their menu, which has everything from coffee, tea, milkshakes, pastries, and pasta. I tried the Creamy Salted Egg Pasta with Shrimp — at PHP215, don’t expect gigantic prawns — but it’s a good way to have a happy tummy! It turns out you can munch on the goodies with the cats themselves — just hope that they don’t steal it away from you!
Here are some of the new friends I made during my visit:
To satisfy your claw-some cat cravings and to help boost your mood, paw-lease drop by Tabby Town Cat Cafe on your way up to Tagaytay. It’s truly a Fancy Delight!
