A 64-year-old man celebrates his love of cats by paying his 200th visit to the very first cat cafe in the south.

Alan Daglish will visit the Pause Cat Cafe in Bournemouth – a rescue house for eleven cats.

The cats were cared for all day and night by volunteers during the lockdown

Alan is a big fan of space, he is known to walk to Poole for a cup of tea with the cats.

Her favorite cat is Petrus, who occasionally climbs onto Alan’s shoulders for a hug. When asked why he enjoys the experience so much, Alan replies, “I love seeing Petrus and they make great tea.

Petrus is Alan’s favorite cat and has been visiting him since the cafe opened in 2017

The café opened in February 2017 and makes a special effort for people with disabilities, learning difficulties and those struggling with their mental health.

It was forced to close during the lockdown to comply with Covid restrictions, but the cats were cared for all day and night by volunteers.

The cafe made the decision to pre-open to regulars and volunteers the cats knew, to help the animals adjust to the change.

Le café des chats opened in 2017

Cats are known to help improve moods and provide companionship, but many older people are unable to have their own pets.

The concept of cat cafe is popular in Far Eastern countries – the idea being that the stress of city life can be more easily forgotten if you spend quality time in the company of cats.
