Neko Ngeru Cat Cafe

Our cafe is temporarily closed due to relocation.

You can get updates on our search and graduate cats on Facebook or Instagram and you can still buy our unique merchandise on our shop!

Our Mission

Our moto is ‘Love Cats. Love People.’ This means we have a commitment to serve the needs of the cats in our care and the people who love them, our customers. Our cat café is designed to provide a safe, relaxing space for both cats and humans giving them the chance to interact in positive ways. Our cats get a chance to be socialised and find their adoptive home. Our customers get a chance to enjoy ‘cat relaxation therapy’ whether they are looking for a new cat to adopt or not.

How it works


A cat is rescued from the public or a rescue organisation, often coming from a traumatic or difficult situation. We do vet checks, vaccinations and de-sexing if needed.


Our fosterers look after the cat/kitten and teach them how to interact with humans as we check to make sure it has no communicable diseases or other serious issues.

At the cafe

Once the cat/kitten is ready, he/she will come to the cafe and stay with us for a minimum of four weeks, this is the time for them to pick a new family.


After a successful trial time of two weeks with the new family, the adoption is official and the cat graduates from Neko Ngeru.

While we’re relocating…
