One York café will be closed today (Monday).

The Cat’s Whiskers cat café on Goodramgate is shutting to keep its furry residents as comfortable as possible as temperatures rise.

Here’s what they said: “Whilst we will still be on site keeping the kitties as cool and comfortable as possible, we will not be open to customers.

“We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused, but feel this is the right decision for the well being of our cats and our staff.

“As always we are closed on Tuesday so we will re-open on Wednesday 20th July.

“Keep cool and safe everyone!”
