MEET THE CATS : BERT AND MR B

In our search for hotel cats near and far, we've realised that there are quite a lot of kitteh's taking up residence in some of the UK's most historical houses. (Smart idea friends, smart idea.) Strattons is a luxury boutique hotel and is lucky enough to have two full time resident cats to greet their guests: Snaggle toothed Bert and striped Mr B! Beautiful Bert is often mistaken for a pedigree, perhaps a ragdoll or Siamese, however he was actually born on a local farm within a litter of black kittens! We think you're just beautiful Bert!  

Bert is sweet natured with a naughty side and will generally be found inspecting the front garden or lounging on his favourite chair.  The second resident, Mr B, moved in a few years ago after seeing the benefits of becoming a hotel cat, and learning  the ropes from Bert.  Bert realised there was enough love and patrolling duties to be shared, and the tabby boy hasn't looked back. Mr B will greet you at your car for a quick fuss before heading for a snooze in the hotels reception. Strattons is pet friendly, so sometimes their duties include showing fur guests around, but always letting them know who the boss is!
