Meet Coco, Scuba Lodge & Ocean Suites, Curacao, Caribbean
MEET THE CAT : COCO
We know at Hotels With Cats paw quarters that girl ginger cats are special little souls indeed according to our Piper! Meet Coco, queen of Curacao. The Caribbean scuba supervisor was hand picked from an animal shelter with the sole purpose of being the resident cat at Scuba Lodge, and boy has she lived up to her duties! In 2012, the team went down to the local animal shelter and headed to the kitten area. The moment they first spotted Coco, they fell in love with her big blue eyes and little pink nose. She was just eight weeks old at the time, but showed a lot of promise for her future role of resident cat.
Back at the hotel, Coco did not disappoint and quickly became everyone’s favourite. From staff members to guests, everyone enjoys her company. Guests regularly ask about her even long after they have checked-out and left the bright blue seas.Today, she even has her own hashtags to stay connected with friends and fans; #ScubaLodgeCoco and #TheAdventuresOfScubaLodgeCoco. Coco is a self-acclaimed food taster and knows the island like the back of her paw. She's known to take her supervising duties of the diving cupboard very seriously. What a lucky cat you are Coco, to live in such pawradise!
