Maison De Moggy offer olive branch: Edinburgh cat cafe forgives and welcomes back person who drunkenly stole 'M' part of sign
A cat cafe in Edinburgh has welcomed back a person responsible for drunkenly taking the ‘M’ of their sign on a night out, saying they ‘believe in forgiveness’.
Maison De Moggy has offered an olive branch after finding the culprit who took the ‘M’ of their cafe’s ‘Maison De Moggy’ sign over the weekend.
The Edinburgh cat cafe had initially posted the incident on their Facebook page, urging the person responsible to come forward so that they did not need to take the matter further with the police.
The cafe reported that it had CCTV footage of the incident and also mentioned their building was vandalised with the signature ‘Peso’.

However, since then, the cafe said the individual responsible came forward on Monday morning and said that they had made a ‘bad drunken decision.’
A Maison De Moggy spokesperson said: “The person who took the M had been on a night out and obviously made a bad drunken decision.
"When they saw our social media post about the sign it all came flooding back and they were consumed with guilt.
“They called us first thing this morning and have offered sincere apologies and offered to pay for any repairs.”
The cafe has since removed their initial Facebook post which pointed out the impact this theft had on a small business.
Maison De Moggy added: "The person is clearly mortified and sincerely sorry, we believe in forgiveness here so of course they are still welcome for a visit.”
The cafe reopened on April 26 this year and has been offering drinks and cakes in the company of their cats for 5 years.
