In pics: Ricky visits Sparky at a luxury cat hotel

Sparky and his bed

Sparky is staying at a hotel just for cats while his owners are on holiday. Here he's testing his bed which was designed especially for the hotel and comes with duck-down pillows.


But it's not bedtime just yet. Sparky has heard that Ricky is visiting and has supper waiting for him. Wonder what's on the menu?

Sparky's meal is from the 'a la cat' menu - today he's having ham served on a special plate.

Sparky has a closer look...

But he seems a little bit more interested in tasting Ricky's nose!

Play area

The hotel has a play area with lots of climbing poles - this one has nice, soft material.

So time for some fun! Sparky and Ricky hang out in the play area.

Sparky seems really pleased that Ricky's dropped by.

And finally, Sparky thanks Ricky for visiting - or is he trying to stop him leaving!
