If you know me, you know I love cats. So when my birthday rolled round this year we thought what better thing to do than visit the newly opened Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium on Bethnal Green road.
When you arrive at the Cat Emporium you enter through the cafe section, which is separate to where you play with the cats. Once we were in we were given a brief talk about dos/don’ts and then sent over to a sink to wash our hands.
From there it was on to the cats! There is a small upstairs area with tables/chairs and a larger area downstairs full of sofas and surfaces that the cats can play or sleep on!
I would definitely recommend trying the cronuts when you visit – so good. It looked like they also served a cream tea, and various other calorific goodies!
The cats are all so sweet and each have their own unique personalities. Some were much more playful (very funny play fighting and rolling around with each other) while others sat there and chilled. There are loads of cat toys everywhere which are free to use so that you can interact with the cats.
Say Hi to Wookie!
The cat lady gene runs in our family.
It was such a fun and unique experience that I would 100% recommend to all cat lovers. There is also an abundance of cat related merchandise in the gift shop. (very dangerous for someone like me) – if you are in London go check it out!
