A new cat café is set to open in Coventry city centre shortly.

Signage for ‘The Cat Lounge’ has been spotted going up on a unit in Market Way and is thought to be the city’s first cat café, with the nearest others being in Stratford-upon-Avon and Birmingham.

If based on other establishments of its kind, the café will allow customers to enjoy a coffee and cake in the company of freely roaming felines.
