Here's what past attendees had to say about the workshops:

As a new cat parent, I decided to attend their recent cat care workshops hoping it would give me a quick crash course instead of stumbling around on the internet and indeed it didn't disappoint. Info shared were from evidence-based studies, and from their many years of experience in handling cats. Still amazed at how beautiful, healthy and docile all their cats are.

The workshops have helped me in choosing much wisely for cat food and not be so lost again whenever I stepped into a pet store. Definitely more confident in handling my 3-mth old kitten now, and the suggestion for the water fountain has been such a great investment. My kitten has been drinking much more often, and playing w the small water sprout at times.

I strongly recommend the workshops to any new cat owners or present cat owners to possibly clear some misconceptions you might have or as a refresher.

Sam and Sue were so sincere and passionate about cats and their welfare and I must say it has been really inspiring. Thank you for advocating #adoptdontshop too!

To all pawparents, if u have one or more cats, whether you are new or seasoned pawparents, I will like to strongly encourage you to attend the Cat Care Workshops organised by Cat Cafe Neko No Niwa.

The knowledge I have gathered from attending both Basic and Advanced Cat Care Workshops have been extremely helpful for me, especially the part on reading food labels, calculating the nutritional value in the listed ingredients on the food labels. With that knowledge I can now provide a suitable and complete diet for my cats and ensure that they grow up to be healthier and happier meows!!

Prior to this, we were just trying to figure out on our own based on well-meaning advice from our pawparent friends and the information we gathered from the internet. The information gathered gets really confusing after a while! But with what has been taught, it cleared up a lot of our questions and doubts we had previously regarding certain practices relating to cats.

The series of cat care workshops held by Cat Cafe Neko No Niwa are really great for both new and experienced cat parents. I appreciated the evidence-based approach of the workshops, because I can be assured that I am taking care of my cat's nutrition, hygiene and general health based on scientific data, and not just opinions on a forum. These are the only cat care workshops supported by the SPCA, and it's not hard to see why.

The cat cafe itself is also a wonderful place to visit and hang out with human and feline friends. The ambience is peaceful and pleasant, and you can enjoy good coffee and cakes while watching the cats play.

Sam, Sue Lynn and the rest of the team at the cafe are truly passionate about their rescue cat family, and educating the public about cat care. This is not only a great enterprise, but also a social cause worth supporting.
