Half of the venue is given over to the cat cafe, while half is a conventional coffee shop.

Owners Dave Robb and Kathy Yeung have been kitting out the Lazy Cat Cafe.

A one-hour session in the cat cafe is £6, although the coffee shop itself is free to enter.

12 cats are resident in the cafe but you cannot bring in your own cat.

Former IT worker Dave, 39, told Blog Preston in July: “We want it to be a really peaceful and restful place.

“Visiting a cat cafe is proven to help reduce stress and anxiety levels.”

A statement on the hygiene of the premises said: “Our cafe is separate to our cat lounge, which allows us to keep food and cats completely separate. Table service in the lounge means we can maintain our high sanitary standards.”
