Oh, I wish I lived in Italy! These photos are from the new Gatthotel & Spa in Perugia, Italy. It is a totally new concept created by Roberta Mammoli, a vet with a passion for interior design. The Gatthotel offers cat boarding, grooming, and a shop.
The private boarding “rooms” (pictured below) are spacious and fitted with shelves that allow kitty to hide when she feels like it (mainly upon arrival) and then to have a look around when curiosity takes over. Only delicate natural products are used in the grooming salon to take care of sensitive skin. Dryers and clippers were chosen among the less noisy on the market to avoid stress as much as possible.
The shop sells a wide variety of products for cats and their owners, of course all with the expected Italian eye for good design. In addition to cat care items like carriers and beds the store stocks other cat-related gift items, such as cards, jigsaw puzzles, mugs, and sculptures.
I hope to visit someday!
