Cat Cafe Could Relax You: A London entrepreneur wants to open a cafe that caters to cats and cat lovers. Lauren Pears, a video game executive and cat lover, is raising money on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo to open the British capital’s first cat cafe, modeled on a coffee shop in Tokyo. Pears' idea is to partner with a local animal shelter that will supply 10 to 15 calm, people-friendly cats. The cats will make the cafe their home and interact with patrons as they wish. Visitors will receive unexpected affection, warmth and companionship. Pears told The Star, “It’s more about a relaxing place to go to than about designer cats,” she said. “There is a lot of medical research into the benefits of animal therapy.” Cats will be socialized first at the Mayhew shelter and undergo regular health inspections.The Star
