Meet Mamacat, Kembali Lagi Guesthouse, Sanur, Bali
Mamacat wandered into Kembali Lagi Guest House, in Sanur, Bali one afternoon in 2017. “She would walk through, pausing at various rooms, get petted by guests and then make herself comfortable in our reception area,” says Camille Middlebrook, owner. Over the following week, they heard that she had been dumped. (This is sadly common practice when cats become pregnant in Bali.)
Indeed, she was pregnant, and looking for a safe haven to nest and have her babies. By the middle of January, staff were getting concerned about where Mamacat would have her kittens. Things were slow enough to book one guest room for a few weeks. “She checked in right away. On the morning of Friday January 19th she began to call us for her delivery”, says Camille. “If we tried to leave, she would follow. So we stayed and took turns all day...until she delivered five perfect kittens.” These days, Mamacat lives a much more relaxed life. Her kitten rearing days are over, and she lives on poolside as purrmanent resident cat.
Mamacat and photos of her beautiful babies feature in our new Magazine. Read her full story there, and find 17 other Hotels With Cats, art, recipes, fashion, travel advice and more!
