Other than cat cafes, where else in Singapore can we have some playtime with cats? I used to think that the only other option was to bug the community cats downstairs (who deserve a whole bunch of love as well!) until I discovered Cat Paradise — Singapore’s very first cageless cat adoption centre that allows us to interact freely with the rescued cats.
This is a great new initiative to encourage cat adoption as you’ll be able to interact with the cats in a much closer manner as compared to when they’re confined in their cage at the usual adoption drives. This way, the cats’ true personalities can also shine through as they are already comfortable with where they are.
Potential adopters and all cat lovers (whether you’re adopting or not) are welcome to spend time with these furry babies at just S$15 per hour. The fee also includes treats that you can feed the cats to score some brownie points with them.
For those who want to spend more time to get to know these lovely felines, you can also opt for the S$30 full-day pass (weekdays).
The cats at Cat Paradise are housed in a comfortable and spacious environment filled with many interactive toys, cosy beds and cushions as well as climbing platforms for them to explore to their hearts’ content — making them a very happy bunch of kitties.
They’re also well-socialised and will not hesitate to come snuggle with you or lay on your lap — if they want to. Let’s be honest, we all know how cats are. While we’re on the topic, while it’s an open adoption centre, it’s important to treat the cats gently and not force them onto your lap or side.
There are a set of house rules upon entering the adoption centre, so be sure to be respectful of them so that the cats can have a safe and stress-free environment while interacting with you.
To make it easier for those who are interested in adopting, the cats here have also all been given a clean bill of health and are sterilised, so all you have to do is get your home cat-proofed, get the necessities like toys and food and you’re all set up to welcome your new furkid home.
Who says hitting the bars is the only way to de-stress after a long week of work? Time to pet some kitties and get those oxytocins flowing!

We enjoy animal-related establishments as it gives us the opportunity to interact with our favourite animals – and as animal lovers, we can’t ignore the ethical issues that revolve around this. From animal cafes to pet shops and catteries, there are a wide range of ethical concerns when it comes to animal welfare such as the treatment of the animals, or ethical breeding at pet shops and catteries.
As we share some really great animal cafes, pet shops and catteries to visit, we strongly urge everyone to treat these animals gently, and if you have seen signs that the animals are not being well taken care of, please highlight it to us immediately. If you are considering getting a pet, we would also encourage you to consider adoption options first if possible. There are plenty of lovable animals waiting for a good home at places like SoSD, Cat Welfare Society, and the SPCA!
