Ahmed Taher Makki, a young Iraqi, a student at the Faculty of Medicine at Basra University in Iraq, is a cat lover, and what he has achieved is only a testament to how much he values the well-being of our four-legged friends.
Makki, has opened the first hotel for cats in Iraq, in the city of Basra, in the south of the country, where owners can leave their cats at any time.
The very strange idea came to the mind of the young Iraqi, because of his keen love for cats since his early age. He worked to convert part of his family’s house into a hotel to accommodate these animals.
“This is the first hotel of its kind in Iraq and perhaps around the world. According to Makki.
This exotic hotel offers many distinctive and luxurious services to cats guests: comfortable and cozy beds, healthy food, play areas and other places to wash and clean, that’s not all, this Iraqi hotel cares for the health of its guests, and provides them with a special place for the care and treatment of sick cats, an emergency service with veterinarians, providing them with the necessary treatment.
Speaking to the media, the young Iraqi Ahmed Taher Makki, said his new hotel, consisting of two rooms only, could accommodate more than 30 cats at once, one of which is reserved for normal cases, intended for convalescence, games, food and sleep.
He added that the second room is completely isolated from the rest of the house.
Its hotel offers a great luxury because it provides ventilation services, a temperature in compliance with worldwide standards, hygiene, prevention and sterilization of the place.
Makki explained that his goal was to encourage people to adopt cats by providing them with proper feeding advice, health services, and a safe shelter for animals when their owners traveled, and emphasized that he promotes his hotel services through the Facebook page “MY CAT PET HOTEL” which provides advice on healthy cat food choices and medical advice.
It should be noted that the cost of an overnight stay at the Cats hotel is between 5,000 and 7,000 Iraqi dinars, about US $ 6, and can even be as high as 2,500 dinars if a cat stays for a long time.
And it is possible for owners to follow their cats’ stay through the “WhatsApp” app on their phone.
