Fancy Meow Cat Cafe, Rotorua

Fancy Meow Cat Cafe is home to five fancy cat breeds including Ragdolls, a British Blue and a Bengal. On 13 May some little kittens moved in too. The fancy felines have two rooms full of cat gyms, hidey-holes, and furniture to climb.

Most of the cats at Fancy Meow are Ragdolls as they are an especially people friendly breed, they also have the most beautiful blue eyes.

It’s a rule at Fancy Meow, and a good one I think, to let sleeping cats lie so timing and luck determine which fancy felines will be up and about to play with. When the cats want a break from visitors they can also retreat through one of the cat doors to a people free room.

There are some unusual cats at Fancy Meow including Doupi the Bengal with his leopard like spots. Doupi is a rescue cat and was timid on arrival, it was good to see him out interacting with other cats.

Volcano surprised me, he was so relaxed that he was lying on his back with his tummy exposed. I’ve read that it’s unusual for cats to do this as they are at their most vulnerable in this position, so Volcano obviously feels right at home.

It costs $10 to spend 30 minutes with the cats, or $15 for an hour, the charge includes a hot or cold drink. A pager sounds when your drink is ready, you collect your drink from a hatch with a sliding door so there is no need to leave the cats.

    • Your gravatar gives you away 🙂 This is the Rotorua one, under the cat cafe tag at the bottom of the post is the one on Auckland’s North Shore – The Cat Lounge in Glenfield. Barista Cats is another cat cafe in Auckland, it’s at 95 Queen Street in the city so that one is the easiest to get to for visitors staying downtown.
