The Sunday Fraggle report~ Mogs on the Tyne edition

On Thursday Sophie and I went into Newcastle to do lunch at the new cat cafe, Mog on The Tyne. A clever name as there is a famous song by a local famous group, Lindisfarne, called Fog on the Tyne :).  The cafe only opened a couple of weeks ago after 2 years in the planning, and Sophie booked us in for a 1hr slot at lunchtime. It’s £5 to book, and that money goes to the upkeep of the cats, of which there are 10, and then you can buy lunch & drinks too.  All the cats are rescue cats and most are just beyond kitten hood, I think that’s so they grow up used to people and the environment.  Sophie doesn’t have cats of her own as she travels to Spain several times a year, so she was thrilled to get some pussy cat time. We hadn’t factored in that it’s still school holidays here, so there were a fair few youngsters who of course don’t give a monkey’s that you’re trying to take photo’s and get in the way a lot! We will return when kids are back to school!

It’s a great place to have lunch, we had Chicken & chorizo pannini’s which were delicious and I had a great cup of tea, very good price too. It’s already very popular and gets full booked really quickly. Open hours are 10am til 8pm with a closure between 3pm & 5pm for cat naps.
