It's nearly a year to the day when London's first cat cafe passed its funding target. Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium is currently beta testing in Shoreditch, but if you're more of a dog person never fear! This great city, which holds all that life can afford, can cater for your tastes as well.
Well, not quite yet. The House of Hounds dog cafe set up a Twitter account in January 2013 and then went very quiet for a year. Their return to Twitter was swiftly followed by a Facebook page and there's a website-in-progress, which all indicate serious progress on turning the doggie dream into reality. It'll be stocking dog products as well as more human-orientated items, and there are plans for an event space. And, much like its feline opposite number, will likely be in Hoxton or Shoreditch.
We'll let you know when there's more information on wuffly when the opening date is.
