A busy Easter ahead at Hotel Cat

We are very much looking forward to our first Easter at Hotel Cat. We have a full house of beautiful guests to look after, who will all be enjoying a complimentary gourmet dinner. We have also bought all the cats an Easter egg to play with, these are currently hanging on our Easter tree and are being eyed with delight by lots of playful cats!

The Easter tree ready to be shared with all our guests.

We have had an extremely busy few weeks and have been trying to prepare for summer outside. We have to finish the fencing for the new donkey, Percy Pinkerton, as we want his new paddock to be outside the cats windows so they can watch his crazy antics during the day. We also have new plans to keep Hotel Cat the best Cat Hotel in the country, all will be revealed shortly…….
The majority of our visitors comment on how much bigger the suites are than they imagined. I think the only way to really show the size off properly is to have a short film of Hotel Cat made. This would enable everyone to see exactly how lovely and spacious the suites are. We adore looking after your cats and the best feedback is always how chilled out they are when you come to collect them, this tells us that we are getting it right.
One thing which we are not asked, but do provide, are nightlights. I always imagine that the cats would prefer a bit of light once the main lights are turned off and so we light the main hall with battery operated candles. These provide a lovely warm glow and can also be placed in the individual suites on request.

Lovely Reviews

We have had such lovely reviews left for us since we opened. Some are left on Facebook, whilst others are sent to us by email. This one really made my day and sums up totally why we built Hotel Cat;

‘Hello Jackie
Just a quick note to say a hundred million thanks for looking after Poppy so brilliantly.
In the past when we have brought her home from a Cattery she has stuck to us like glue, always in the same room as us and craving fuss and knees and never having been groomed, despite promises to do so.
Yesterday when we got her home she was miss independent, she had a good look around and had brief knee visits and fuss and was in no way disturbed by her stay away from home. She is calm and happy.
We can tell that she has actually really enjoyed her stay with you and she sees it as a second home, with second ” mum and dad” to meet her needs.
She is very fluffy and thanks you for helping her to take care of the huge fur coat she wears.
Words cannot express our relief in finding you, we are so confident now to book trips away without them being overshadowed by the guilt of leaving Poppy somewhere as totally alien as a normal Cattery .
Our only real fear now is that by next year you will be so full that we won’t be able to secure a booking for Pops, we KNOW that will be the case and that you will be turning bookings away before you know it.
So we are going to plan our trips well in advance!!’

We love looking after all the cats who come to stay and having just the seven suites is perfect as it enables us to spend real quality time with them all. We are taking bookings daily and have a real variety booked to stay throughout the year. One breed I am really looking forward to meeting is our first family of Australian Mist cats – especially as one is a kitten!

We have a new member of staff joining our family in August. He passed his interview with flying colours and his official post is Head of Entertainment – we believe he will do very well in this post. His name is Percy Pinkerton and we are very much looking forward to his arrival. I have attached a photo of his interview with Tim……..

We have had a very busy few weeks with lots of lovely cats coming to stay. We fall in love with all of them as they are all heart stealers, but Frog the Devon Rex had us wrapped firmly around her tiny paws! She was only 6 months old and it was her first visit to us. She had so much fun and kept us so entertained with her crazy antics. In true cat fashion her favourite toy was the wire from a champagne cork, we would throw it and she would fetch it back for us each time, so very cute.

Spring is bursting to life all around us and the birds are very busy. We have a couple of blue tits nesting in one of the boxes which is right outside the Royal Mews bedroom window. I don’t know who is more absorbed by them, us or the cats!

We have a fun filled Easter planned with a cat themed Easter egg hunt for all the lovely guests we have booked in. We are always on the lookout for new ways to keep the cats busy between naps!
