Actress Wanda Hendrix Visiting Mildred Alexander’s Motel for Cats in San Francisco, 1947

This post was originally published on this site

Mildred Alexander gave new meaning to the term “cathouse!” She operated a Sherman Oaks cat motel with 30 units that took up nearly an acre of ground.

Each feline was housed in a little bungalow and provided with a customized menu that might include lobster or ice water in crystal goblets. Adult cats had barrel beds while others were furnished with kitten cribs.
Each blue and white cat bungalow has its own recreation hall. The inside of the rooms will have electrical lights and will be heated in the winter. During the summer, cats will enjoy bunks with sun and breeze.
