Meet Armando, Hotel Luna Mystica, Taos, New Mexico, USA
MEET THE CAT : ARMANDO
11 month old Armando lives at one of the coolest properties we've found, Hotel Luna Mystica, a vintage trailer park in Taos, New Mexico! On his pawtrol duties, Armando includes all the beautifully restored trailers and the next door brewery, Taos Mesa Brewing, in his rounds. He used to get thrown out of the brewery, but his friendly nature soon won them over and it's not uncommon to walk in and find him stretched out on someones lap or sleeping on the couch back stage in the green room. He struts in and claims a chair amid all the crowds, and has even raided the VIP tents at festivals!
Armando is the kind of cat you can pick up and squeeze. He loves children and anytime a family checks in he always says hello and is sure to visit their trailer to ensure everything is in order. He was adopted from the local pound with his brother, Snickers, who sadly went missing. These days he teams up with his best friend Logan, the resident border collie. Known for demanding attention, Armando struts around like he owns the place and is not afraid to sit next to strangers. "He lets everyone pet him. He's just an all around hilarious cat to watch", says Tristan from Hotel Luna Mystica.
Stopping in for a cuddle with Armando and a beer is definitely a must on your USA road trip!
