Cat Unhappy with Budget Hotel Room
When Doodles the cat got the deal of a lifetime on a New York City hotel room, he suspected it might be too good to be true. He was right.
"His first tip should have been that he was shopping at a web site called, ‘Gr8H0tels4L3ss.biz,’" said Karen Romero, a representative of the Better Business Bureau of Manhattan. "Legit businesses tend not to use so many numbers in place of letters."
Doodles scored what was described on the site as a “quaint but well appointed” room in a prime downtown location for $15/night. It turned out to be a spare bathroom in a basement apartment in Queens.
He plans to leave a very negative Yelp review.

Cat Can’t Unsee Raccoons’ Romantic Encounter
A cat named Sharon has lost significant sleep in recent weeks after witnessing a romantic liaison between two raccoons outside her Toronto home.
"Every time she closes her eyes, there they are," says Isabel Parker, a family friend. "You know. Doing it. I think she’s traumatized.”
Sharon’s doctor has recommended sleep therapy and even prescribed pharmaceutical aides, to no avail.
As for the raccoons, local law enforcement has been looking into a string of lewd behavior offenses in the neighborhood, but pinpointed no suspects.

Cat Avoids ‘House of Cards’ Spoilers at All Costs
A Washington, DC cat named Fletcher might be the only person in America who hasn’t finished season two of the Netflix original series House of Cards.
"His whole family finished season two, all his co-workers are talking about the big twist ending," says Bruce Jimenez, a friend of the cat. "Fletcher just curls up in a ball and covers his ears. He’ll go to crazy lengths to avoid spoilers."
"What’s taking him so long?" asks Diane Holland, one of Fletcher’s colleagues whom he frequently chats with at the office water cooler. "All the episodes are right there on Netflix! I just want to gush about Frank Underwood, but Fletcher is useless to me!”
But Fletcher’s strategy is decidedly anti-binge, according to sources close to him. “He likes to savor each episode week to week — really reflect on it, like the old days of TV dramas,” says Jenna Evans, another friend. “It’s getting harder and harder to do that in an on-demand world.”
