Meet Trevor, Fortaleza, Fort Galle, Sri Lanka


Meet Trevor from Fortaleza Boutique Hotel in Fort Galle, Sri Lanka. Trevor is one lucky and beautiful itty bitty street cat who was rescued by a friend of Fortaleza's manager, who thought her markings would match the colours in the coral restaurant. Natalie, the manager, thought she was a he and named him Trevor! By the time they realised it was too late and the name had stuck. Trevor is a great guard cat who frequently welcomes hotel guests and loves to inspect their baggage when they are checking in.

Trevor is a full time pawtrol cat, who keeps an eye on things. She likes to hang out near the reception desk, the reception sofa, the office printer, the ledge at the top of the stairs (where she is known to playfully tap guests on the head as they walk by) and in the rose apple tree in the courtyard. Trevor's favourite food is fresh tuna or a prawn and whiskers cat biscuits. She is very good at yelling at the Chefs in the kitchen from the doorway when she fancies a prawn! Trevor has become quite famous with Chinese guests and has been featured in a Sri Lankan news paper and a wedding shoot! And rightly so, with those beautiful eyes of yours Trevor!
