These are a few of my favourite things* starting with C. I’m not particularly a huge cat fan but their usual ‘no fucks given today’ attitude does resonate rather well with me. So when fellow Aussies banging around Bangkok mentioned that they wanted to visit a cat cafe I happy packed my pockets full of cat nip and hoped on the skytrain to visit Caturday.
The Caturday Cafe can be a bit sneaky to find. It’s hidden off the main road, behind a boom gate. When you first see the area it looks like an apartment car park. Rest assured the kitties are here. There’s a few other cafes and eateries here alongside the car park.
One of the perks of Caturday is the walk in service. There’s no need to book mid afternoon mid week but I would try to get a booking for weekends.
The health and well being of the cats is taken quite seriously. On arrival you’re asked to wash your hands and remove shoes.
One you’re inside kitty kingdom you’re shown to a table and given free reign to be a cat slave. Like any good kingdoms there are few rules but those that exist are strictly monitored and enforced.
Note that if you choose to become a cat slave and share your food it’s on your own head. They staff will not replace anything. The staff here are super friendly, helpful and attentive. The cats have them really well trained.
There’s over 40 kitties in the kingdom. Big ones. Little ones. Ones which look like kitty equivalent of a sausage dog. The Caturday staff allow around 15-20 out in the cafe at any one time. There’s plenty of nooks, boxes and couches for the kitties to sleep in and avoid crazy cat ladies.
Cake & Coffee.
The menu here is really basic and surprisingly pleasant. A few hot dishes, cake, soft drinks and coffee. Everything is reasonably priced for Bangkok. You’re certainly not paying street food prices but its less than Starbucks or Hollys.
All in all Caturday Cafe is one of Bangkoks cutest theme cafes. Reasonably priced, there’s no cover charge and the coffee is worth Instagramming!
Caturday Cat Café can be found by taking the BTS to Ratchathewi. From there head towards exit 2 and take the stairs down to the right. And the bottom of the stairs you’ll need to turn around and walk roughly 10 meters. You’ll see ahead of you on the corner ‘guts’ restaurant. Turn right here, past the car park entrance and continue down until you reach Caturday Cat Café on your left.
