Caturday on a Saturday - Bangkok’s Cat Cafe
Themed cafe experiences are available throughout the world
Themed cafe experiences are available throughout the world, though they are far more common in Southeast Asia than in most other regions. In particular, Japan has a never-ending supply of cafes that range from animé cafes to animal cafes, and everything in between.

In Bangkok, the emergence of animal cafes has been a somewhat recent development in the tourism industry, especially as the city has made more developments in preserving green spaces and building dog-friendly parks and recreational facilities around town. These projects have ushered in a new age of pet ownership in Bangkok, which has always been difficult to manage because of the multitude of challenges that living in the bustling city provides for anyone making the decision to own a pet. These challenges include but are not limited to small living spaces (condos), parks not allowing dogs, and the presence of soi dogs living all over the city, which are usually friendly but still do provide an additional challenge when being a pet owner in Bangkok.

For those who want to have an animal experience but are not ready for pet ownership, there is an elegant solution right in the center of the city's central business district- Caturday Cat Cafe.

Caturday Cat Cafe is nestled in the CocoWalk alleyway, situated right below Ratchathewi BTS Station in downtown Bangkok. The CocoWalk area is home to a variety of bars and restaurants and is next door to a famous comedy club. Most people walking by might be totally unaware of the fact that nestled in the back of the busy bar area is a peaceful cat haven that is open for business 7 days a week,

The interior of Caturday looks and feels like a human-sized dollhouse. It is adorned with royal portraiture of the cats living in the cafe. The decoration of the cafe is also such that the interior feels like it is its own #1 fan- everything is branded Caturday, from the glasses used to serve the beverages, the dishes the food is served in, and even the napkins. There is also a plethora of Caturday merchandise for sale that supports the business, and it's the ability to have these cats living in the lap of luxury.

There is no entrance fee to visit Caturday, but it is suggested that each person spending an hour in the space spend 150THB on food or drink while enjoying time spent with the cats.

Bonus: If you're looking to adopt your own puppy, there is finally a place for you- The Adoptable Puppy Cafe

The adoptable Puppy Cafe is a relatively new, pop-up-style "cafe" that has a mission to find "forever homes" for puppies in Bangkok. The cafe itself is not a permanent establishment like Caturday, but it is held every Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at UnionSpace's cafe in Ekkamai.

The mission of the Adoptable Puppy Cafe is to allow people to connect with rescue puppies and dogs in a fun and comfortable space, with the ultimate goal of creating "forever bonds."

Those unable to adopt are still welcome and can take the chance to learn more about volunteering and fostering, or simply help with an optional donation to support the organization.
