ICHI Cat Cafe

So far, we have found a cat cafe in every large  city we have gone to so far and Saigon was no exception. The cafe here was called ICHI Cat Cafe (no, I don’t know the origins of the name) and it did not disappoint.

Great Cat Cafe

It operates similarly to the others. First, you walk in, take off your shoes and put on their slippers and wash your hands. They show you the rules which are similar to other cafes (like don’t pick up the cats and don’t use flash on the cats).

There is a “cuddle charge” of 40,000dong (~$1.80). The drinks options (you are not required to buy one) include various coffees, yogurt shakes, sodas, smoothies, teas, and more. They also have some dessert options.

There were tons of sweet kitties!

I love seeing cats get snuggly with each other.

“There’s no other kitty here. Just me.”

All of the cats pretty healthy which was good to see.

Delicious Drinks

We ordered one drink to share (a strawberry smoothie) and it was great.  They also gave us water which was nice.

A nice water fountain was available for the cats.

The feeding schedule is not clear,  but one cat seemed like it wished it was time for food.

I was also able to find some litter boxes (just off to the side/sort of in the corner), which for some reason I find comforting. I wouldn’t have probably noticed them if I weren’t looking.

Like at other cafes, we enjoyed going around and observing and petting various cats and also just sitting with them. This cafe felt more open to our mobility within the cafe and was not overly crowded with people.

Such a cutie.

There were a few other people there including a girl who was there sketching the cats. I had to tell a child to stop bothering a cat, though. She was blowing in its face and doing other things to bother it.

Cut Cat Theme

They had lots of cute decorations like cat pillows. There was even a bookshelf full of books (mostly about kitties).

There was also a period of time where most of the cats decided to take naps.

    Nice post. I have a dose of petting some cats (stray) in the garden (servings 3 apartment blocks). It is nice to pet when you don’t have a pet or cannot afford to have one because of the circumstances etc. 🙂
