It’s a sad day for the city’s kitty lovers as the Cat Café Manchester has revealed that it will soon close its doors for good – and it’s on the look out for loving new homes for its feline residents. Posting on Facebook earlier this week, the venue – which originally opened on High Street back in 2016 – announced that despite their team’s best efforts, they’ve been unable to agree new terms with their landlord and will not reopen when lockdown lifts.
As with many of Manchester’s much-loved cultural venues, the Cat Café took a massive hit in the wake of COVID-19, with footfall dropping sharply and the space being unable to open under the government’s ever-changing rules and restrictions. Despite this sad news, the venue has promised that it will return when the pandemic is over and is currently on the look out for a new permanent home. In the meantime, the Café’s is on the look out for loving families to adopt their 10 fluffy inhabitants. To find out more, visit the Cat Café Manchester website.
