Dublin's Cat Lounge is closing down and we're devastated.

The lounge gave visitors a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life while chilling with cats and kittens.

It was pretty dope.

Writing on Facebook today, the owner said, "

I writing to share the terrible news that Cat Lounge is closing on 31st August 2018. Since we opened on 10th October 2017, we have had major success and have enjoyed every minute of it. We have housed 55 cats from our vets and rescues and rehomed most of them. I wanted to change peoples mind, and I wanted to help the rescues the best way I could. Unfortunately, cats alone in a business is not enough to cover costs, and I have suffered some very big debts trying to keep going, telling myself that it will get better. It hasn’t gotten better, and I have had to make the very hard decision to close Cat Lounge."

Here are some of the beautiful moments that the Cat Lounge gave us.
