Kitty cuddles, coffee and cake
The cat cafe craze has finally reached Australia, with the countries first cat cafe opening up in Melbourne in a few month's time.

Set to open by July near the Queen Victoria Market, this cafe is the stuff of cat lover's dreams. You can cuddle cats to your hearts content and enjoy a coffee in the same venue.

For those cats lovers who draw the line at cat hair in their coffee, don't worry, the cats and the coffee will be hosted in separate spaces.

The team behind Cat Cafe Melbourne searched for the perfect location for a number of months before coming across 375 Queen Street, Melbourne, which they pounced on and are currently cleaning up to be fit for some furry friends.

To make animal lover's hearts even warmer and fuzzier, the cats that will make cat lovers their home will be rescues from local rescue shelters and the cafe will raise money to donate to these rescue shelters on an ongoing basis.

A great place to unwind - interacting with cats has been proven to lower high blood pressure, stress and anxiety - and get your cat and coffee fix in one, I, for one, cannot wait for Cat Cafe to open!
