Why luxury resorts in Cyprus are installing ‘cat hotels’ for strays
They’re a dime a dozen in places like Greece and Cyprus, and people tend to either love them or loathe them.
For those in the former category, seeing thin or injured felines lurking around is a sorry sight to behold. For locals and hotel managers, their presence is a nuisance. Whatever your stance, no-one wins when it comes to an oversized stray cat population.
But one organisation reckons it’s got the solution. Animal Rescue Cyprus, located in Paphos, is persuading luxury resorts to take care of their feline population rather than shoo them away. By providing on-site shelter and food stations, the theory goes, cats have a safe place to eat and sleep, and will be thus less inclined to pester guests.
