On 15 June, CATS Cafe JB announced their decision to permanently close their business

Based in Johor Bahru (JB), the owners of the beloved cat cafe have decided to end their business after five years of operation.

In a Facebook post, they wrote, "It is with the heaviest heart that @catscafejb is announcing our painful decision for permanent closure of our cafe business."

They expressed their gratitude for the customers who have supported them throughout the years saying, "We could not have done it without your infinite support and love for our cafe."

The post did not reveal why they were shutting down, but the cafe has been closed since the beginning of the Movement Control Order (MCO), on 18 March, which lasted for 83 days.

Their closing was met with overwhelming response from saddened customers who were hoping for the cafe's reopening

There were over 560 comments under their farewell post, with many people reminiscing over the good times they have had at CATS Cafe JB. 

A number of commenters had concerns over where or who the cats would be going to.

After receiving many messages from eager customers wondering if they could adopt a cat, CATS Cafe JB launched their 'Rehome With A Fee' initiative

Yesterday, the team formally launched the new initiative to find homes and loving owners for their cats.

They uploaded a poster highlighting that they are looking for genuine and dedicated new owners to take on the responsibility of looking after a cat. 

Owners will also be required to sign a contract to ensure that the cat will be well taken care of.

Keep a look out on their Facebook page for more information as to which cats will be up for adoption.

Alongside the cats, the business will also be selling off all items in their cafe

CATS Cafe JB will soon be hosting Instagram livstreams and stories to sell off items including furniture and cat-related products.
