The Cat House Café is also a cat hotel, adoption center, events area, and art gallery all rolled into one convenient venue. With its walls adorned with everything cat-themed from trinkets to doorknobs and intricate murals hand-painted by one of the owners of the cat café herself, Ms. Cha Laxamana, there is surely no boring wall in this café! "I wanted to bring something new to the table, something that will set Uchi No Neko apart from all the other cat cafés" she lovingly says.


 2  All their resident cats come with heart-warming backstories of rescue and recovery.

Uchi No Neko strictly says NO to buying their cats from pet stores. All their resident cats were rescued and have inspiring backstories of abuse, neglect, and recovery. The resident cats either come from the homes of the rescuers or from organizations like the Philippine Animal Rescue Team (PART).

 3  You can bring home your favorite resident cat because it's also an adoption center.

Uchi No Neko takes pride in its cat-loving chefs that prepare meals that could pass off as works of art. With intricate details moulded into whimsical cat shapes and designs, no meal is ever dull because they're all just too cute to eat! "People will surely be taking photos of their meals before digging in." –The Cat House Café

 6  They treat their resident cats like royalty.


Uchi No Neko has a very strict policy regarding kitty shifts on the café floor. Each kitty will only be allowed 20 minutes to mingle with people before being whisked away back to their Cat Hotel, where they have individual suites, beds, are pampered, well-fed, and given an ample amount of time to decongest themselves from all the cuddling with the café customers. With over 35 resident cats, only 12-15 kitties will be allowed on the café floor at a time. This is to keep them from getting too stressed out from all the excited people and cat-crazy paparazzi.
