Guinness World Records celebrates fluffy cats and dogs in London’s most comforting setting.

The Amazing Animals Fluffytorium is open to the public during October half-term – Friday, 27 October and Saturday, 28 October.

Members of the public will be able to enjoy this relaxing setting in central London – a room covered from floor to ceiling in long, soft and colourful faux fur – while petting some of the fluffiest cats and dogs around.


Free 30-minute sessions will be available over the course of the two-day experience.

Visitors can also enjoy delicious milkshakes (from a fur-covered bar) and pose for pictures in the Instagram-able set – complete with a giant dog house and cat bed and a human-sized cat flap.

It’s purrfect for children (aged six and over) and parents alike.


The cats and dogs have been hand-selected to offer the most chilled-out experience, with four extraordinarily fluffy animals present during each session.

Those lucky enough to book a place can expect to meet the likes of Chow Chows, poodles, Pomeranians and Maine Coons.

The fur-filled experience has been created to celebrate the release of a brand-new title from Guinness World Records: Amazing Animals – a book entirely dedicated to the fastest, tallest, strongest, strangest and most talented animals in the world.
