Our ex-paw-rience
City Editor Connor here. I visited the lounge to meet the cats for myself. I arrived a few minutes before my appointment and ordered an ube brown sugar latteand it tasted as good as it looked.

I had a full hour to pet and play with seven kittens, and one even tried to take a sip of my drink. The cats were very friendly, though some were a bit shyer than others and took their time warming up to me. They have plenty of toys and places to climb — it’s truly a cat’s purr-adise.

If we were cats, we would want to hang out here all day too.
