Cocktail Lounges & Minibars: Day 3 of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure

KATIE:  Ooooh! A swanky cocktail lounge.



KATIE:  Nothing like the soft touch of velvet under my toes. Perhaps I'm a bit early for happy hour. Still, I'm sure they'll open the bar for me.



KATIE:  I'll take my Kitty Cosmo by the fire, please. With a twist of catnip. Hold the fruit.




KATIE:  What do you suppose Waffles is doing back in the hotel room right now?



*Meanwhile, eleven floors up...*
WAFFLES:  Who's got the minibar key?



WAFFLES:  YAAAAWWWWWN.



WAFFLES:  Still. Need. Minibar key.



WAFFLES:  Be very, very quiet.



WAFFLES:  MINI. BAR. KEY!!! 



Day 3 of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure
Once Glogirly returned from her daily progress check at the Townhouse, she and Katie took the Waffle Wagon for a spin down to the hotel lobby. There's a beautiful seating area adjacent to the cocktail lounge where pets are welcome. People too. *wink* It was midday and very quiet which gave Katie a chance to stretch her legs and safely explore the space. 

She even had a chance to meet some of the hotel staff. Cat lovers, of course. They were both admiring Katie's harness bling. 

It's always fun traveling with cats because it's just so unexpected for people to see them out in public or at a hotel. It catches them by surprise. The Waffle Wagon is often mistaken for a child's stroller and when someone realizes there's a kitty on board, the smiles get even bigger. People LOVE to talk about their cats. 

Meanwhile back in the room, Waffles was up to his usual antics. He's fascinated with anything that opens and closes. Doors and doorframes, drawers, cabinets and yes, the mini bar fridge. The bathroom has a separate toilet room (can we say that???) with it's own frosted glass door. So far we're up to a count of about 12 times that Waffles has closed himself in behind that door. It's now permanently propped open. So much for modesty.

We know we said yesterday that we'd be sharing more about the Grand Hotel Minneapolis and the Kimpton Hotel Group's best-of-class pet policy... but Waffles has asked that we save that for tomorrow. And you know how persuasive an orange mancat can be. 



Please join us tomorrow for Day Four of Katie & Waffles' Grand Hotel Adventure

  15. Awww, Katie has her own name plate for the wagon! So glad to hear she's doing great with all the change and that our sweet boy is his usual self - food, doors and bed. Hope Gloman and Glogirl are enjoying some pampering as well!

  17. Miss Katie, you fit right in at that lounge. Lush surroundings for a luscious kitty!

    Waffles, I (Sammy) would be looking for the minibar key also. Meowm says she would be as well!

  18. Better watch the credit card no telling what Waffles may buy from the mini fridge bar! MOL

  19. I hope Katie got her cocktail and Waffles finds the mini bar key.. (no one tell him that he has the perfect lock picking tools at the end of his feet)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just make sure they don't drink and drive ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Did Katie get her kitty cocktail? I certainly hope so. I was thinking a Russian-less White Russian.

    Waff, you stay there, they close the door and then no one can find you. Maybe that is what Katie wants.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh Waffles, you just make our mom bean laff and laff and laff. You've locked yourself in the biggest water bowl room 12 times??? That's pawsome.

    We thinks we know why Katie wants a drink early in the morning. We is glad you had fun on your trip to the lounge. It looks like a purrfect place to curl up for a nap.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  23. Oooh, we can hardly wait to see that hotel bill ... we wonder what Waffles ordered from the mini bar???

    ReplyDelete
  24. You are both having so much fun that you won't want to go back home!

  25. Waffles, we think your GloHumans are going to have a difficult time getting you to leave when it is time to return to the townhouse. However, we're pretty sure that minibar does not contain any chicken. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  28. I know I'm pretty late commenting on your Grand Adventure but I'm in the mood for more Waffles and Katie stories! Katie you were such a lady in the lounge. And Waffles I knew in no time you would be on Glogirly's pillow! I think my Frank would love to ride in Waffles' wagon.
