Check out the other tour stops

1st October 2019, Clink Street Publishing, 168 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Summary from press release
Congratulations! You have just found the best cat book ever written. I’m Archie and I am a ginger cat and the manager at the most incredible hotel just for cats. I’ve written this book so humans get to meet me and my guests as we get up to all sorts at night including cat rodeo, cat casino night, cat sailing and even skiing. I can’t wait for you to meet my guests and get to know their real personalities, not to mention my team, which includes Dan and Louis the horses and my three faithful hounds Buddy, Dougy and Alfie. Get ready for the read of your life.

Nayu's thoughts
Any book with a cat in gets my vote, as I adore them and think they are magnificent. That is the kind of (c)attitude (not sorry for the pun) that Archie would approve of. The whole concept of a hotel for cats rather than humans intrigued me, and I wasn't disappointed with what I learnt. I got to know the ins and outs of how the hotel worked, the services the guests got, and a lot about the staff and guests themselves. Their human helpers don't have a clue what goes on behind the scenes once they return home. Did you know cats like to party? 

Truly, they do. I was less keen that there was a bit of gambling involved, which is the only issue I had with the book. Other than that I liked how there's a cat mafia, high jinx is a total understatement with the insane entertainment Archie comes up with. Cats willing going near water? Most hate it! There's a rodeo that turns up an unexpected star who is talented in other ways, a stand off with some wild cats, several occasions when the true nature of the hotel nearly gets discovered by the humans. I did want to know more of what happened in the spa treatments. I did want more details on the spa treatment as it intrigued me as to what cats found relaxing. 

Then there are the characters, and boy are they strong individuals! I should have known at the start when photos of the main characters were given just how interesting they are. Some have (c)attitude, some are mischievous, some hide secrets, some are devious, and all are adorable! Yes it included a Ragdoll which is my favourite breed of cat. Archie, the main cat in charge, knows how to look after his guests. He is a genius at thinking about every detail when it comes to creating a cover story for the humans when a night goes wrong, which it does more than once. He knows how to bribe certain animals  to do what he wants, he knows the high expectations his guests have and there are some lines not even he crosses, although he does have lapses in judgement in some situations. I probably wouldn't have him as my cat, but I admire his confidence which somehow never seemed to turn into arrogance. 

You will never look at a cat hotel in the same way again! Ever. Even I now wonder what happens in catteries after dark. 

Added at the end of the review: um, guys, this cat hotel is real! I thought it was imaginary, despite the photos and I probably forgot what the press release said before reading, but just check out the website!!!! WOW!!! I want to be a cat. There is the spa, the fancy menu, and the rooms are gorgeous!!! My cat Belle would never go because she gets looked after at home even if family are away because she is most comfy with that, but the rates f/or rooms seem reasonable to me, as are the extras. You can even watch what your cat does while it is away, for an extra price. This makes the book even more amazing! Linda sure has a dream job.
