High tea with fancy felines at Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium!

03/03/2017

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium is a real cat-lover's paradise and we can't recommend a visit highly enough, especially if you are an avid cat-sitter on Pawshake! There are plenty of events and activities to enjoy including high tea, knitting with cats, cat bingo and colouring-in with cats, so whatever your interest you will find a purrfect way to relax with these happy kitties.

What a perfect spot for a pet sitter and owner to get to know each other at that first meet and greet!

How did you come up with the idea? 

Cat Cafes have been around for a long time in southeast Asia. I thought it would be a lovely idea in London, and noticed a few had popped up in Vienna and St Petersburg and thought perhaps Europe was ready for this kind of place.

Why did you open this cafe? 

I wanted to create a peaceful and happy place for people to enjoy, and to enjoy working in. We’re celebrating our 3 year anniversary in 2 days, and some of our team will be celebrating their 3 year anniversary with us.

What was the initial reaction from your first few customers?

We had so many - people were very excited! We were fully booked for the first 2 years and it’s still very difficult to secure bookings on weekends and evenings at our cafe.
