Visiting a café with your human friends are such a thing of the past. For all animal lovers out there, you don’t have to look far to fulfil your needs to play with some cats and/or dogs. There are so many animal or pet cafes scattered across Malaysia where you can play with some cuddly companions or even bring your own pets and introduce them to some new furry friends.
1. Huskiss Café
When Huskiss Café opened its doors back in October, pet lovers from all around Klang Valley were left shook because the first husky café is finally opening in the area. Although other dog cafes in Klang Valley have featured a few huskies, Huskiss Café is the first to specifically feature Siberian huskies as their resident pets.
The café has six resident Siberian husky puppies, or “Huskids”, and you can play with them for 1 and a half hours for only RM20 which includes a free drink worth RM6.90. Huskiss Café divides their guests into 5 different timeslots to allow the Huskids to eat and take a nap in peace. It’s recommended that you and your furry-loving friends book a timeslot beforehand as they only allow 15 pax per session.

If enthusiastic large canines aren’t necessarily your cup of tea, fret not because there are so many cafes dedicated only for cats across Klang Valley and the rest of the country. Purradise Café sets itself apart from the other cat cafes because they focus on giving their 21 resident cats, or “Kittizens” a healthy diet. The café also sells cat food under their own brand, Rawr, all made with natural ingredients that are highly beneficial for your feline friends at home.
For an hour of playtime with the adorable cats, it will only cost you RM15, inclusive a drink of your choice. Since the Kittizens are all about that healthy lifestyle, you can also follow their paw-steps by ordering one of the café’s healthy many like smoothies, fresh juices, wholemeal sandwiches, and more.

Be that as it may, you can bring your own dogs to Cubs and Cups café to play let them play with their smaller dogs while you enjoy one of their delicious dishes or drinks.

4. Kopicat Café
You may already know this cat joint as Coffee Cottage but despite the change in name, the café still offers delectable food, thirst-quenching drinks, and beautiful feline friends. The cats at this SS15 animal café are not your average cats; they’re rescued stray cats that you can adopt and give a forever home to! Kopicat Café works closely with Paws Animal Welfare Society, or PAWS Malaysia, to ensure that these cute kitties are properly taken care of and loved by the right owners.
There are no time limits as to how long you can play with the furry friends at Kopicat Café but the only catch is you have to order something off their menu to go into the cats’ special play room. But bringing your work there is not recommended because you’re guaranteed to be distracted by all the cats roaming around the café.
