I don’t know what it is, but cats just love motel rooms.
They love to explore the new space and the new smells.
They love the new window that looks out on a new view.
But most of all…
They love the new bed! My old Siamese, Harri, and Jacoby both love(d) to roll around like crazy on the new bedspread. Kylie loves to blend in with the plain white sheets and towels. Everything you read says that cats hate change, but they sure seem to enjoy the novelty of a new room.
