Guinness World Records has created something lovers of everything cute and soft won’t be able to get enough of.

The Amazing Animals Fluffytorium has opened in London – and, as you might be able to guess, it’s there to celebrate all things fluffy.

The Fluffytorium invites members of the public to spend time in a room with furniture and even walls made of fur and filled with the fluffiest dogs and cats around.

A floof paradise indeed – and it turns out the Fluffytorium might be a much-needed sanctuary.

According to Guinness World Records, they did some research and found that only a third of pet owners in Britain would consider having a long-haired pet – put off by moulted hair.

Instead people are opting for shorter-haired varieties such as Labradors, French Bulldogs and Pugs.

The Fluffytorium has been set up to celebrate the release of Guinness World Records’ new title Amazing Animals – a book focused on record-breaking and fascinating animals.

The Fluffytorium opens its doors on October 27 and 28 in Soho.

“We all live such busy lives,” said Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief at Guinness World Records. “If spending some time stroking a Chow Chow and thumbing through a Guinness World Records book doesn’t amuse and relax you, I don’t know what will.”
