Hotel Félin

  [vote for,

Jon checked in to his third hotel of the week. The Hotel Félin was one of his absolute favourites and it always made his stay in Brussels a pleasureable one.

"Smoking or non-smoking room, Mr [thegeologist]?".
"Non-smoking please", replied Jon

"Cat, or no cat Sir" .... well, there was no choice, it had to be cat for that was what made Hotel Félin the place to stay.


Cat lovers would agree that having a feline friend makes a house into a home. It warms your heart to see your furry friend sleeping on your bed as you return from work.

The Hotel Félin room doors all have catflaps in them so that the hotel's purry residents can move from room to room, making your temporary home theirs. The weary traveller is soothed by the sight of their temporary pet.

Stroking cats (or smoothing cats as we say here in the West Country UK), is a proven stress relief - nothing could be better for you after a long journey.

As an addition to the Room Service menu, cat tidbits can be ordered to pamper your new feline friend.

Non cat lovers can still be accomodated at Hotel Félin as some floors of the hotel, like the restaurant, are entirely cat free.

Branches opening in your closest city soon. Purr.

       Just go and stay with a mad old lady, there's one in every town and more cats than there are sparrows for.
BillyBB, Mar 18 2004

       is there a mad old lady category in yellow pages?
po, Mar 18 2004

       [po] it's not an SIC I recognise ...   

       <aside> SIC (standard industry code) are the categories you see in the yellow pages. All businesses are classified by SIC </aside>   

       anyhoos, back to the Hotel Félin ...

       Hope it's nowhere near the "All Dogs Lodgehen"
dpsyplc, Mar 18 2004

       (Returns to room to find 20 cats warming bed)

I think this should include some sort of technology to stop more than a few cats getting into the one room.

I'm not a cat person myself, but I can see the attraction of this for those who do. When can we expect the Hotel Canine to open?

It might be a good idea to make sure you only stock male cats, or at least have your female stock spayed. Otherwise you may soon have more cats than guests...
silverstormer, Mar 18 2004

       [unabubba] if sir asks at reception ...   

       [silverstormer] Hotel Canine would need enormous doorflaps wouldn't they?!
jonthegeologist, Mar 18 2004

       Since most of my travel is on business, would I be able to order a colour-coordinated cat to counter the crisis of being coated in contrasting colour cat hair?
GenYus, Mar 18 2004

       Hotel Canine would require a specially constructed building. All rooms would have double walls between the rooms and the corridor, these double walls would be wide enough to allow the transition of dogs between rooms. Access to the flaps is only authorised to certain collar encorporated combination signals. The type/s of dog a patron requests is assigned to the rooms dog list, thus allowing doggie entrance...

Happy now?
silverstormer, Mar 18 2004

       [silverstormer] top job mate, lovely jubb.   

       [genyus] could always get a pair of [po]'s cat coloured trousers. that'll save the problem. Or, just ask at reception....
jonthegeologist, Mar 18 2004

       [gnomethang] looks beautiful. Until Hotel Félin opens, I'll ditch the Radisson in favour of le dixseptieme. Drinks at 8?
jonthegeologist, Mar 18 2004

       hey, Egbert - I have a new clothes brush especially for you!
po, Mar 18 2004

       Bun for the idea [jtg]. This might actually be the place to implement the whole thing. We got a choice of rooms from the cleaner (in French) and apparently the furnishings can be changed during the day at the whim of the German proprietor. It did *feel* like a cat friendly place.

       As long as my luggage doesn't get sprayed I will feed them pastry.   

       I was looking for Laughs Last's link, which I though was very similar.
FarmerJohn, Mar 19 2004

       [farmerjohn] so did I when I read it. Maybe this is a twist on [laughs_last]'s excellent posting.
jonthegeologist, Mar 19 2004

       It's not uncommon to find pets at bed & breakfasts.
