We went to the cat cafe today with a group of friends. What a great place, comfortable, warm, friendly, clean and lovely cats to be purred.
The coffee was great, and the kids enjoyed the pies.

We loved our trip to Neko Ngeru. The owners have clearly poured their heart and soul into creating this beautiful environment for these very lucky kitties. The day we visited, the cats were particularly active - lots of playing around, jumping up on the coffee...More
