Animal lovers could be in for a treat as a new cat café, like the popular Manchester Cat Café, could be making its way to Preston very soon.

Mark, a huge animal lover, is keen to discover if there would be any interest for him to open a café in Preston.

The 30-year-old, who owns five cats himself, has been thinking about the idea for a while, and was inspired by visiting a cat café whilst living in Amsterdam several years ago.

Manchester’s cat café has become an incredibly popular attraction, and currently is home to 11 furry residents who were previously house cats.

The cats are well looked after in the spacious venue which features their own private ‘cat room’, personalised bunk beds for each cat, toys, and water fountains.

The idea of cat café’s are to create a safe environment which cater for the cats needs and wellbeing, and allows humans to relax on sofas with refreshments such as coffee and cake.

With the provision of wifi also, humans can enjoy surfing the web along with getting up close and personal with the furry creatures.

Preston’s cat café would be similar to the Manchester attraction, which costs £12 every hour including unlimited hot and cold drinks, enabling up to 20 people visiting each time to prevent overcrowding.

Mark said: “I am aware there are concerns from charities regarding how animals are cared for in these types of places, so would be keen to seek support of professionals to ensure that everything is put in place to support the welfare of the animals – alongside owning and caring for 5 cats”

Mark would love to find out Preston’s response to his idea before taking it to the next step.
