Purrfect Cat Cafe Penang

Holidays are over and I spent my first day of 2017 visiting Penang as a transit spot before heading back to Kuala Lumpur. I didn't have much to do during my stopover as I arrived Penang around 630pm from Kota Kinabalu and stayed at a chic hostel called "Syiok Hostel" at Jalan Chulia. A highly recommended place to stay with private quarters for an all female dormitory and shared bathroom. Free breakfast is included with the cost and taken on the top floor. Clean and tidy. Have to use hostel's indoor slippers to go around and your shoes are left outside. I loved the concept. Memang syiok lah! Haha.

I must say that the transportation in Penang is very convenient! The Rapid Penang buses are cheap and you can get around easily with just RM2.70, which is also the cost from Georgetown to the airport. And then there's UBER!

So where did I go in such a short time?

I read about Purrfect Cat Cafe from a map of Penang gotten from the airport. It wasn't that far away from Chulia street and decided to head there before my bus to KL at 12:30pm.

When I reached there, the cafe was still close. The time shown on my phone was 9:55am. Most of the shops were still closed except the Camera Musuem next to it. There were cats there too so I went to play with them first.

The cafe eventually opened around 10am and after looking around the cats' merchandise downstairs, I paid RM13.00 to enter the cat section upstairs. Hands washed and shoes left downstairs, I immediately started to capture some decent cat photos using my Huawei P9 Plus.

He's trying to tell me that he's the boss!
