I hope you like cats. Because this post is full of them.
We walked into the cat cafe (emporium, if you will), a little unsure what to expect. And a little unsure where the cats were. Hiding?
We'd donned our matching cat rings for the occasion, as you do.
And ordered Guinness chocolate cakes and lemon tea (me and Dan) and a hot chocolate and carrot muffin (Moira).
But where are the cats, you ask?
There they are!
Just kidding, here's a real one. Lounging the giant Cat Emporium Wheel. What a life.
This little guy wasted no time hopping up to meet me.
I'm not sure how well you can read the paper this guy is sitting on, but it says "So, who's bright idea was this?". I'd like to know that too. and I'd like to personally thank them. Cats! Cake! All in one place!
Sipping my tea. Uninteresting, I'm sorry. Back to the cats.
JUST LOOK AT THESE GUYS. This is a little hammock over the stairs that they have a rest in. Dan called them ying and yang at one point because they were so intertwined. Let's all say it together: aaaaaaaaawwwww.
Even in the drinks!
We headed downstairs after our tea, and spotted a few more cuties hanging out.
Luring them to me with treats!
Moira sat down to an important meeting.
And right when we were about to leave I couldn't resist going to play with this guy in the window for a bit. He's just too cuuuute!
Saying goodbye to my new friend.
Okay, so I'm sure you can tell that this is the ultimate place for cat lovers. There are eleven cats just hanging around, playing with the toys that are everywhere (there's a laser beam shaped like a fish!) and just generally stealing your heart. They also have cute names, like Loki and Biscuit. Ughhhh! Irresistible. Go! Soon! (They're booked until October so perhaps make a reservation first).
