I guess it depends on where the hotel is. If you're in Florida then a stray croc (or was that an alligator??) might give you pause. In Mexico, a good ole stray ostrich is a thing of beauty!
Are there really stray ostriches in Mexico? If so, I need to book a trip asap! That I must see!
Best stray animal: Cat
It was at first a toss up between cats and birds but birds can be unpredictable and erratic. And they will just let off a load of excrement with no remorse. More or less when you see a cat you know what you're going to get. Plus they self-clean.
Worst stray animal: Cockroach
There wasn't much competition here. I guess where you see one has more weighting. If it is in your room then that's unacceptable but if it's at the buffet then that also is unacceptable but atleast it isn't in your room.
Does a cockroach really qualify as an animal in this scenario?
@David Madden oh I have a hotel roach story. I won’t call their name BUT can you imagine I’m helping with a conference planned at a hotel…I am reorganizing the table so I lift the little basket with sugar packages and place it back on the table - out runs many tiny little roaches. I died ten times in 30 seconds. The End.
@Anna R The fact that you said many...anything more than 1 is grotesque! and 1 is bad enough! OMG, I'm so sorry you had to endure that.
At a hotel I would prefer to see a stray cat over a stray rat
David, there is no such thing as a good stray animal to see at a hotel!😜
Don't know Ash... a stray cat wouldn't bother me one bit. I'd likely feed it, Jordie would probably just take it home 😄😄
@Hermalyn Reid-Simon You're kidding! I hate cats! Cats on vacation are no exception 😂
