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

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.

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.
