It’s lifestyle needs galore at Cat Socrates.

Discover lifestyle goods such as notebooks, bags, pillows and mugs whimsically fashioned by local designers. Bring home the likes of aesthetically pleasing wooden furnishings, magnets or tote bags with Peranakan tiles or cat prints. You’ll also find a range of books and magazines here, published by local writers and illustrators. Keep a look out for the resident cat shopkeeper Zoo-zoo – if he isn’t waiting to greet you by the door, he might be resting in his bed hanging by the window.
