IF Puss in Boots were to open a cat cafe, where do you think it would be?
Well, a bootstrapping cat would probably open one in Marikina, the shoe capital of the Philippines where he can have his favorite leather footwear made to boot (pun intended).
Like taking a page from Puss in Boots' book, a new cat cafe in Marikina opened about a month ago and named itself Cats & Crumbs. Located at the 2/F Terraza Phase 2 C&B Circle Mall, Liwasang Kalayaan Street, Marikina Heights, this latest cat cafe in Metro Manila made room for 10 rescued puspins (Pusang Pinoy) from the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
All 10 cats have been fixed (spayed/neutered) and are up for adoption. They are clean, healthy and with sweet disposition. As you enter their special room, some of them will quickly fuss over you while others will remain as cool as cucumbers just waiting to be petted.
Here are the 10 cats in their Instagram-worthy moments.
“Puspin is a breed. They are beautiful!,” exclaimed Swannie. “I'm glad that a cat cafe for puspins is feasible,” she added.
A visit to any cat cafe also becomes a unique experience because of the thoughtful interior designs. An overstated cat theme is to be expected and welcomed, but those that also provide enough comfort for the cats and patrons alike always get our vote. Cats & Crumbs is not ostentatiously decorated, in fact it's rather sparse, which is okay. We'd rather have comfortable seating areas both in the cafe side and in the cat area side. It has its own toilet and mall parking is available. If you are not familiar with the area, Waze can take you there. Cats & Crumbs' place is bright, clean and roomy enough, but at 50 square meters or so for the entire restaurant, they've decided to limit the number of visitors to the cat area to 10 humans at a time.
Cats and Crumbs is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
