So, we just got home from another fantastic trip to Disneyland. We always stay at the Howard Johnson, but this trip, I decided to splurge and stay two nights at the Disneyland Hotel (then the rest of the nights at HoJo).
Anyways... while staying at the Disneyland Hotel, I took a suitcase full of clothes down to the hotel laundromat, at 5:00 in the morning. I am typically an early riser, and decided to get the laundry done, before the crowds woke up.
The Disneyland Hotel has the laundromat located near the exercise facility, which is in its own small building. It's off to the side and a bit out of the way. While on the way to the laundromat, I enjoyed the smell of the early morning grass and the peacefulness of the moment. The only person I encountered on the way to the laundromat was a hotel employee, who greeted me with a friendly "good morning"... and then as I approached the laundromat, I was greeted by a pack of cats! There was easily 6 to 8 of them. Most of them were just laying in the morning sun, on the sidewalk. As I approached, they all scattered, and disappeared into the shrubs.
This got me thinking... "where do all the Disney cats actually live?"
I know the parks also have cats, which help keep the rodents away. I've even heard that they have feeding stations set-up for them (like in the abandoned Skyway Station in Fantasyland).
Do the Hotels and the Parks actually have shelters for the cats? Or are they left to their own devices?
Are they actually fed on a daily basis? Or do they survive on mice and garbage?
Are they vaccinated? Or are they potentially carrying diseases?
Anybody have any 'official information' on the cats...?
