When we have pets, they immediately become members of the family. They are the ultimate best friends. Many cat and dog owners even bring their furry companions on vacation! Sadly, not everyone has the capacity to adopt a furry friend of their own — perhaps a family member is allergic to Mittens or caring for Fido is too much of a commitment.
Enter the pet cafe (or animal cafe).The undeniable goal at these restaurants is to create environments that allow you to enjoy the presence and/or company of their four-legged hosts. Here’s a list of all the furbaby-hosted eateries where you and a newly-made furry buddy may enjoy a meal together.
1. Clawset Pet Cafe, Petaling Jaya
As you enter this canine heaven, you will be welcomed by yelping friendly dogs that will hurry over to greet you. Here, you’ll meet curious Poodles, fluffy Pomeranians, Pugs, and even a French Bulldog. There is a platform area where you can sit with the fur babies at ground level. Alternatively, you can simply nestle them onto your lap while sitting on the long benches.
If you’re looking to restock on pet food and other supplies, be sure to visit the connection pet accessory shop. Clawset Pet Cafe hosts workshops on pet health, pet care, and seasonal pet parties on occasion. They also provide a space to hold special events.
