Paws everything, because Catlantis is on the way.
The lost city of Atlantis has inspired countless depictions, from streets paved with gold to technologically-advanced merpeople. Perhaps centuries from now, people will write just as fervently about Catlantis, which is neither a city nor lost, but rather a cat cafe that’ll be appearing in Marylebone rather soon.
No set date has been given for the grand unveiling of Catlantis (love the name, incidentally), but a few tantalising details have already been released. The folks behind Catlantis are hoping to feature fifteen rescued cats, who have been fostered from a local shelter. They’ve also pledged to take a leaf out of Lady Dinah’s book – that’s right, London will soon boast TWO cat cafes! – and make the space as welcoming and stress-free for the cats as possible.
Other great initiatives will see Catlantis donate a portion of their revenue to Cats Protection, to help feline welfare, and stock coffee, tea, and juices from Fairtrade suppliers. All wonderful, and naturally a visit here will surely result in countless ear-scratching, belly rubs, and purrs of approval. Add in the mooted cat-shaped entrance and stylish interiors, and it’s hard to escape the conclusion that Catlantis really is the cat’s pyjamas…
