Kitties, while a certain airhead Calico was off riding trains, I was doing some serious thinking. The subject for this Monday’s Musings is: Loew’s Hotels.
I am sure everyone here has heard about how this supposedly “pet friendly” hotel is cruelly and inhumanely trapping their TNR colony and sending them off to a kill shelter, in spite of repeated offers of help from various agencies. The reasons they have given for doing this horrible thing have been weak and unconvincing.
All of this has gotten me to thinking – if this is the logic they use for the cats – would they use the same logic for guests?
Here are some examples:
1. Loews claim that they must remove the TNR colony because they may cause the spread of disease, even though the cats have all received their rabies shots. So…using this logic, if a guest was to sneeze in the lobby while checking in, would Loews immediately stuff the guest into an undersized cage and sit them out in the sun with food or water – because you know, by sneezing, the guest could spread a cold to other guests.
2. Loews says that they must remove the colony because the presence of these cats might encourage other cats onto the property – even though all cats in the colony have been fixed. So….using this logic, if a guest, while staying at the hotel, was to ask a friend to meet them at the hotel, would Loews, upon seeing this, immediately cage the guest and send them to a kill shelter, because you know, the hotel does not like guests to have anyone over.
3. When Loews started this colony, they made a commitment to the cats. But now that they have decided that commitment is inconvenient, they have no problem in not honoring it. So…using that logic, if a guest stayed at this hotel, but at the end of their stay the guest decided that it was inconvenient to pay the bill, can the guest just not pay?
Unfortunately, several of the cats have been captured and it seems that nothing is going to dissuade Loews from this horrible decision. It would appear that they have won. But here is the thing – by choosing to fight this battle, the executives at Loews who made this horrible thing happen have guaranteed that they will soon have themselves a personal one-on-one meeting with KARMA. And you know that is one nasty b*tch. She does not fight fair. I'll try not to enjoy the show TOO much!
