London's first cat cafe to open this Saturday

London's first cat cafe is set to open this Saturday.

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium, which raised much of its backing through internet crowdfunding, made the announcement in a YouTube message today.

Its website soon crashed under the pressure from those wanting to make bookings.

The venue, on Bethnal Green Road, invites customers "kick back and relax with a cup of tea and spend time in the soothing company of our purring feline friends."
