Dyas has become owner of Britain's first cat cafe, which is a haven of holistic therapy, organic food and independent retail and its town sign was graffitied with the words "Twinned with Narnia", the Daily Express reported.

The cat cafe phenomenon began in Asia with the world's first opening in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1998 and is now hugely popular in Japan where living conditions are often too cramped for pet ownership.

It charges customers an hourly fee that allows them to relax with a drink and a cat to stroke, which is a form of on-site pet rental-meets-pet therapy.

Dyas told the publication that she chose cats that were friendly, inquisitive and sociable.

She said that they were able to ensure that in the critical stage, eight weeks before opening, they were given a lot of positive human contact.

The cafe itself is a bright room with comfy seats, cat toys, and a bar where cakes and coffee are available with a double electric door system.
