The next time you head out of town, you can make sure your precious pet is well-cared for by dropping them off at a Cat Hotel. In Dewsbury, England, the Ings Luxury Cat Hotel is the 'It' place for your feline to vacation, offering an a-la-carte menu, massages and a four-poster bed for optimal rest and relaxation. The establishment, which is run by Jo Ounsley and her 12-year-old daughter, also features plasma screens playing scenes of virtual birds and fish on a non-stop loop.
Sure, your cat might jump on the counter and scratch your furniture, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth a 15-pound stay in one of the eleven themed suites that Ings has to offer. And if you have your heart set on offering your kitty the best of the best, you can dish out 40 pounds for them to lounge in the lap of luxury -- also known as the Woodland Wing, where cats can receive their TLC via an open fire. Pet owners can be assured their pet is having the time of their nine lives, because the hotel e-mails and sends postcards regularly.
