Cat cafe Maison de Moggy set for Grassmarket move

EDINBURGH’S first cat cafe will soon be throwing open the doors to its permanent home in the Grassmarket.

The cats 'help' with packing.

Maison de Moggy, which opened in a temporary location in Stockbridge back in January, will be setting up shop on West Port in a former bridal store.

Yesterday the cafe tweeted: “We’re nearly there tweeps! Cats are settling in nicely - news of opening imminent!”

Last month owner Laura O’Neill, a former lawyer in the city, promised the new location would be bigger and better than ever - with some new cats set to join the mix once things get settled down.

Mind those claws on the bubble wrap

The cafe, which is inspired by similar ventures in Japan, offers visitors the chance to enjoy a cup of tea while cuddling up to a host of different moggies including a bushy Maine Coon and a rare Norwegian Forest cat.
