This year was pretty wild for the animals of London. Here’s some of the frolics the capital’s critters got up to:
CATS REIGNED SUPREME
It was another bumper year for the city’s cats both on and offline.
We followed the story of Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium with bated breath all year and can not wait for it to open in Bethnal Green at long last in 2014.
Watch this space as we’ll bring you updates as soon as we have them.

Cats ran for mayor (in Mexico, not in London, sadly!)
Giant cats roamed around London (kind of)

And we celebrated the best animal statues in the capital!
