A successful cat cafe in Bristol needs a new owner



The award winning cat cafe in Bristol called You and Meow which is in Denmark Street will close permanently in the next three months if it doesn’t found a new owner. 

It’s owner Ewa Rukat who opened it in 2017 manager to survive the first lockdown with crowdfunding and some help from the government, but the second lockdown proved to be too much. 

You & Meow  won Best Quirky Venue at the inaugural Bristol Loves awards last year. If  a new owner won’t be found its cats will be re-homed, but it would be sad to see a much loved venue go.

Two French publishing houses have opened a specialized bookshop in Paris, in the Pantheon area, called the “Librairie des grands caractères”, a way to grant even the visually impaired the luxury of a walk among books.  And  the sensual pleasure of touching and breathing paper.

Customers are those who suffer from vision-related problems, due to disease or age and we are talking of over a million people in a country like France.

And these books are specialò the paper is made so as not to dazzle, the line spacing is studied, the contrast is never excessive, even and the character is not that of traditional books but an ad hoc one, called Luciole.

One more reason not to abandon reading on paper is, in the case of some totally or partially reversible eye diseases, its important rehabilitative power for sight.

Unfortunately the catalogue of books for visually impaired people is still very limited, it has only about 600 titles.
