Cool Cats: Le Bristol Paris Welcomes Cat Kleopatre to Hotel PDF Print E-mail

If any cats have hit the kitty lotto, it’s Kleopatre and Fa-Raon, two elegant Birman cats who have been accepted as felines in residence at Le Bristol Paris. Together they meander down luxurious corridors filled with artwork, nap in the hotel’s fragrant French gardens, and keep cat-loving visitors content at the concierge desk.

Kleopatre is Le Bristol Paris’ newest arrival and in honor or her joining the staff, she has been presented with a traditional bowtie personalized with her name in the traditional green letters and shaded fuscia colors of Bristol. Her cohort, Fa-Raon, received his matching bowtie on his third birthday last year. Other gifts heralding her arrival include a butterfly knot necklace with a purrsonalized silver medal made designed by Christofle.

The lives of these cats are extraordinary. In spring and summer, the duo are often found napping on the cool beige Italian Botticino marble flooring (imported from the province of Brescia, Italy) that covers the terrace of the 3-Michellin star gastro gastronomic restaurant, Epicure.

Luggage for your Dogs: A look at the Mountain Smith K9 Cube PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 21 March 2014 00:00

Once, while on a camping road trip thru Colorado with my two wolf hybrids, my friend and I arrived at my very remote camping spot to find my dogs had consumed the steaks we had so looked forward to eating that night. Somehow, they had managed to lift the lid of my cooler and help themselves to a five-star meal, while I ended up eating Top Ramen in the desert at 8 pm.

Traveling with pets offers a number of logistical issues you often need to overcome. Dogs are usually able to get their snouts into any of your belonging. Which is why we were thrilled to look at some organizational items designed specifically for life on the road with your pets. Whether you camp, compete in dog sports, or just enjoy a day at the dog park, you’ll find something you’ll love in these modular hauler systems!

The Mountainsmith K9 Cube Dog Pack is a way of organizing your items into individualized, removable pockets. It helps to keep your food away from your pets’ food, toys away from the dog, and easy access to emergency supplies (like first aid kits, or – say, treats…)

Pet-friendly holidays in Suffolk, England PDF Print E-mail
Written by Lucy Morris

Our furry friends are a source of undisputed joy, but also require extra provision and thought when planning a holiday. PetsWeekly runs down a list of our top pet-friendly locations, accommodations and dog-walking attractions for holidaymakers in Suffolk, England.

Pet-friendly places to stay

Cottages in Suffolk can present an excellent accommodation choice for families or couples holidaying with dogs (click here to see a company which provides pet friendly cottages in Suffolk). Offering plenty of wide-open spaces nearby as well as creature comforts for the non-animal members of the household – a welcome relief from negotiating hotel and campsite rules, while holidaying or caravanning with a dog or other furry friends. Central pet-friendly Suffolk locations include the notorious middle-class haven of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast (home to winner of both Britain’s best fish and chip shop, as well as the Sunday Times’ ‘Best for Culture’ in its ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’ listings), as well as such popular nearby towns as Snape (home to the Snape Maltings art complex) and the classic British seaside of Southwold.

Pet-friendly pubs

Being a traditionally rural farming community and more recent tourist destination the majority of Suffolk’s pubs tend to be very dog friendly, featuring spacious outdoor seating areas. Some pubs allow dogs into the pub and bar areas as well as outdoors – reassuring for rainy days – and come with water bowls and even doggy treats freely provided. Be warned, though, that your dog is likely to be petted to within an inch of its life – these types of pubs tend to be popular with families and children too. The Barley Mow at Witnesham, The Swan Inn at Hoxne, The Buxhall Crown in Stowmarket and The Star Inn in Wenhaston are just four that come particularly recommended by dog owners. Check out both http://www.dogfriendlysuffolk.com/ and http://doggiepubs.org.uk/the_pubs.php (and accompanying app) for a guide.
