Administrative errands to run on Admin Day allowed me the pleasure of taking some morning shots of the city 🙂 Relished every moment of it.

SoloTrip to Taipei – Houtong Cat Village
To be honest, I had imagined this to be a cat heaven of sorts, with friendly, rolling cats all over, and them frolicking all over the place, but…
Perhaps it was the dreary drizzle which made it seem like there were less cats than there would be. And even those that appeared seemed a little under the weather themselves.
Still, it was a good place to practice my animal selfie skills.
The Coffee Daily
Thanks to the driving friend, I got to visit this cafe at last. It was a good Monday afternoon.
The Cat Who Takes Lifts
Not the first time, but amazes me everytime.
This time, he/she sat calmly looking at me while the lift took us to the 12th floor.
End of story? He/She eventually stepped into the lift again, and I pressed ‘1’ to take it back to the ground floor.
Someone would have gotten a treat, seeing a cat walk out from a lift..
The Cat Cafe
Literally, a cat cafe called The Cat Cafe! Conveniently located in the heart of the city. A one time entry fee allowed us to spend an entire afternoon with the cats. Bliss.

The Increasingly Friendly One
I think cats are masters of PR too.
Knowing that their popularity with the residents of an urban area would being them benefits in the form of being welcomed and being fed, they do all that is necessary to keep their status.
Oh look, that human is squatting down beside me with the camera again. Alright, let me oblige her with an intense stare into the lens which will make her happy.
After that I will roll over so that she will think I like her.
And then give an adorable sleepy look at her feet.
That ought to keep them happy for another few days.
These humans, so easy to please.
Now, food please.
Penang 2016: Purrfect Cat Cafe
An afternoon of hiding from the sun and being amused by cats.
Free The Robot Cafe
Along Telok Ayer, you might see a little furry head pop out – definitely not a robot!
Bruno was found as a stray, with a serious head wound, infested with maggots. He was brought to the friend’s clinic, had extensive surgery performed on him, and by some twist of fate, survived.
“I wonder who Bruno is”, said the friend who adopted him and who also happened to be the vet who saved his life. “What did he do to have such a sad life.”
Because even though his wound has healed more than a year ago, he is still withdrawn, easily shaken and not easily trusting of people. Basically the opposite of healthy dog behavior. He lies in a corner of the room for most of the day and doesn’t budge when the leash is put on him to go for walks. He doesn’t walk around the house when people are around, only at night when everyone has slept. When I looked at him… I only felt, and saw, Sadness.
I’m sure more positive thoughts/prayers will definitely help Bruno. Thanks in advance, kind reader 🙂
