Holidaying with Cats

Thursday, September 7, 2000
Wait no longer to holiday with your favourite feline. Here's the book which will lead you directly to over 300 beach houses, b&bs, farms and cottages who welcome your extended family.

A few years ago we featured a book called Holidaying with Dogs by Peter and Sandy Dennis. Dog-lovers rejoiced that someone had finally recognised the need for canine-friendly places to stay.

Cat-lovers, however, were up in arms because they felt overlooked. But now here's some good news for them... There's a new book on the shelves: Holidaying with Cats.

It's the first-ever feline-friendly accommodation guide, so Australia's 2.6 million cats and their owners can vie for rooms at over 300 beach houses, b&bs, farms and cottages.

There are just a couple of prerequisites: all cats on holiday must be kept on a lead when they are outside. It's BYO kitty-litter tray, cats must be flea-free and, unless they are used for breeding, must be desexed.
