We all know it's not good to leave your cat home alone for any extended period of time, as there are simply too many things that can go wrong while you're away. Some of these things include fire, flood, illness and far too many others to mention.  While having a pet-sitter come to the house is generally the best option, it may not be an option for you.

Meet Alder and Brook, Alderbrook Resorts Famous Lobby Cats

alderbrook-resortIf you’re looking for a quiet, relaxed getaway in a luxurious mountain paradise – Alderbrook Resort and Spa should be one of your first choices. And if you’re an animal lover (and I’m guessing everyone reading this article is), there are two more reasons to check in – Alder and Brook – the resort’s famous lobby cats. As the official lobby cats, Alder and Brook take their jobs very seriously. They patiently greet visitors in the lobby at check-in and offer your first glimpse at the relaxing, luxurious stay you will be experiencing during your stay. The famous felines spend most of the day lounging around a massive two-way fireplace that perfectly frames the Olympic Mountains rising over the Hood Canal in the distance. I can't imagine a more fortunate set of cats! As guests at Alderbrook Resort this summer, we frequently located the elder cat Brook, a beautiful white manx with one blue and one brown eye, curled up on her favorite chair. Alder, the newest addition to the hotel, tends to spend her day playing with guests as she escorts them to their rooms or acts as tour guide of the property. Both are rescues, both are Manx mixes, and both are as charming as the resort staff.
