article imageCat café to open in London

By Owen Weldon     Feb 24, 2013 in Lifestyle
London - The UK's first ever cat cafe will be opening up in London in the next couple of months after an entrepreneur receives over $100,000 in donations from members of the public.
According to Metro, Lauren Pears has already started to look at prospective sites in London, and is planning to open up her cafe by May.
Pears, 30, says she has already found 10-15 cats that will staff the cafe, and she also has animals coming from from Mayhew Animal Home located in northwest London.
According to Independent , there are many cat cafes in Japan, where guests pay a fee to stroke the animals while drinking their coffee.
According to SMH, Pears' cafe will be open six days a week, 12 hours per day and it will be able to seat up to 50 people.
Pears' cafe, Lady Dinah, will offer guests will be able to eat vegan and vegetarian food, and the chance to say hi to a cat while sipping coffee for $7.60 an hour.
Pears said that a cat cafe has the potential to create social situations that wouldn't really happen otherwise. She said that two strangers could end up talking to each other in a cafe just because there is a cat sitting in-between them.
Animals are allowed in cafe because the British Food Standards Agency allows it. However, reasonable precaution needs to be taken in order to prevent animals from accessing areas where food is prepared.
