The Ten Catmandments

Many, many years ago, there were hundreds of cats in ancient Egypt.  None of them had good, forever homes.  They wandered the land searching for food and water wherever they could find it.  Many were sick and died.  Those who did live to be old cats wondered if life would ever change.  Would they have to wander in the wilderness forever?  Would they find someone to love and care for them?  Would they find a place to be safe from the other animals that hunted them?

Nothing changed for thousands of years.  But, one day, a kitten was born by the name of Meowses.  His mother knew that he was different from any other kitten she had ever seen.  He didn't LOOK different, but she knew that he was.  She took excellent care of him to make sure he stayed healthy and learned all the ways of being a cat.  He did these things very quickly.

She noticed that he got along very well with the humans that shared their world.  They would pet him, feed him, and protect him.  This gave her an idea.  What if the humans would grow to worship him?  How awesome would that be?  If they would worship him, maybe they would begin to worship the other cats.  This could be the cats' way out of the misery they had suffered for so many years.  So she encouraged him to continue to please the humans.  It worked.  The people of ancient Egypt began to treat cats as gods.  That's when the #1 cat called Meowses to the Mount of Catnip to receive the Ten Commandments that humans should follow when worshiping cats.   They are as follows:




Follow these commandments and you will have a friend forever.  This is the gospel according to Meowses.

First Luxury Cat Hotel Opens in the UK!

If your future travel plans include a visit to England, I can save you the problem of finding a hotel that will meet your needs as well as your pet(s) needs.  We are talking some real foo foo stuff here!

Meant to rectify what owners considered a “gap in the market,” the first-ever luxury cat hotel has opened its doors in the UK. The Meadow Cat Hotel in Cornwall took 18 months to complete, but after painstakingly building up the establishment from scratch, owner Gemma Machin, a former primary school teacher, is now welcoming guests to her “five-paw” resort.

 

“I think if the owners are going on holiday their cats should get a treat as well,” Machin said, according to the Western Morning News. “In lots of catteries cats are just put in a cage, but we can drive the cats to and from the hotel, offer them lots of stimulation to keep them active during their stay, give them large rooms and lots of attention.”

Machin’s hotel features under-floor heating, custom wrought-iron beds outfitted with memory foam mattresses and crushed velvet sheets and a gourmet daily menu that includes fresh king prawn and salmon filet -- all at a fairly reasonable price. And, in addition to daily pet-pampering sessions (which include a lot of catnip), Meadow Cat also has amenities for cat-owners: each room in the hotel contains a webcam that tracks cats during their stay, which owners can access online.


 

 

“You get a view of your cat whenever you like -- it’s for peace-of-mind really,” said Machin’s husband and business partner, Richard. “There is nothing to this level in Cornwall and I think it is because there is nothing to this standard in the UK. It is a new era for cats and their owners.”

 

What are your thoughts on this hotel?  As I said, it's pretty fancy.  :>)  Don't plan on going that way anytime soon, but it would be fun to check it out.
