If you happen to live or visit the Manchester area, you can visit Manchester’s first cat cafe. Cat cafes originally began in Asia and soon spread to Europe and North America, so there’s a good chance there’s a cat cafe near you.

Ten cute kitties will soon be settling into Manchester’s first cat cafe. Until the cat cafe opens, the cats are staying at the home of sisters Ellie and Sarah Close.

Ellie said: “It’s going to be cat heaven. It’ll be really comfy and very much designed for the cats. There’ll be sky runs and there are these big supporting pillars that we’re going to turn into giant scratching posts for them.”
