The last day of our holidays at the Red Sea in Egypt, late evening while we were savouring our hot Karkade tea before going to bed, we suddenly heard a sound like a baby cry. But then it became more and more like a meauwing. Finally I opened the door and sitting in the middle of the corridor was a cat !

When she saw me she came right away into our room. Apparently she wasn't hungry at all and tail up discovered my T-shirts and settled down !

We laughed and petted her

here Ilona

and Chantal.

She purred like a little sewing machine and apparently felt very comfy. This couldn't be a stray cat, she must belong to somebody in the Hotel. We called a man from the staff and asked him to whom the cat belonged. He told us something in arabic and tried to take the cat out of my T-shirts. But she didn't want to. Ilona finally pulled her out, but she immediately jumped on my bed and was ready to sleep there. Finally she managed to pick up the cat and handle her over to the man who left our room with the cat in his arms.

While we were still discussing where this cat came from we suddenly heard a strong meauw again ! I went to the door and opened it and sitting just in front looking at me was the cat ! She had come back ! She probably thought these 3 grandma's let me sleep in their beds.

Of course we hadn't the heart to put her out again and I offered her some water which she drank with pleasure.

Then she returned into my T-shirts and lie down for a good night sleep. We went to bed too. I left the window a little open but at 3 am I woke up from a loud meauw, switched on the light, Miss cat wanted to go out but not out of the window ! So I opened the door and she went out and disappeared. Unfortunately she didn't come back and we have never seen her again.

I think every hotel should have a cat for guests. We all miss our cats, and this would be comforting and fun when we leave home. She was a beauty.

To Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous :

If you have something to say about politics,racism, etc in your country and your mile long believe in god than make a blog and tell it openly maybe there are people who are interested in your junk, but don't use my blog !

Wow that is so random, but cute. Luckily you are cat lovers, or that cat might have been hurt if she randomly goes into someone's room. Your clothes must be nice and comfy. :)

What a wonderful Egyptian visitor, maybe she was related to one of the cat goddesses the Eyptians used to worship. FAZ

Thank you so very much for the thoughtful comment you left about my son leaving for Iraq again. It is literally killing me to know he has to go back for 15 more months.

Wishing you and yours a safe and bountiful Thanksgiving holiday!

I love cats in unexpected places. Especially in hotel rooms. That cat was really pretty and sweet. I'd loved to have met her.

Isn't that lovely, Gattina, that cat knew catlovers were in the hotel! Maybe she/he was the hotel cat and picked out certain visitors to sleep with. I would have loved that.

Hallo Gattina, schön, dass du wieder da bist. wir haben dich schon vermisst !
Das ist ja witzig, da kannst du selbst im Urlaub nicht auf Katzen verzichten...
Uns ist schon wieder eine zugelaufen. Ich versuche gerade herauszufinden wem sie hier gehört.
Bis morgen bei CoT
