Lux­ury ho­tels for furry guests boom

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Busi­nesses pro­vid­ing ac­com­mo­da­tions for pets left be­hind by own­ers who trav­eled for Spring Fes­ti­val are en­joy­ing their busiest time of the year.

Se­cur­ing a suit­able tem­po­rary home for a pet can be as dif­fi­cult as get­ting a train ticket dur­ing the year’s most im­por­tant fes­ti­val. It can be even more costly.

Lux­ury “pet ho­tels” in Bei­jing and Shang­hai can be more ex­pen­sive than ho­tels for peo­ple, and they were fully booked at least a month be­fore the week­long hol­i­day.

VAC Cat Ho­tel and Spa in Bei­jing has 15 in­di­vid­ual mod­ern and spa­cious suites with cat­walks, mul­ti­level plat­forms and “fun” nooks. Each room only al­lows one fe­line guest. The nor­mal room rate is $50 (350 yuan) a day, in­clud­ing daily feed­ing and groom­ing ser­vices.
