Red Roof Loves pets!

Pet month is still in full swing! Pet travelers, do not forget to use your 15% discount this month, whether you’re traveling with your dog, cat, chinchilla – whoever your 4-legged best friend happens to be! Don’t forget that all pets stay free!

No matter the pet, petMD is there to help you out with all of your pet needs!

Our Digital Marketing Coordinator used PetMD for her cat whenever she had questions:snapchat-7338138840540447785

“My little kitten named Louie is 2 and a half years old! PetMD has been terrific for me throughout the couple years of Louie’s life so far. PetMD even helped me pick out Louie’s name as they have a large list of male cat names to choose from. PetMD’s symptom checker is great and super easy to use. You just click on what type of pet you have, click on the area where your pet is experiencing symptoms and choose from a wide list of symptoms your pet may have. This has been very helpful as it lets me know whether I should take Louie to a vet or if he is fine and I am just being too much of a worry wart. Thank you PetMD!”

Pet Travel Tips

When traveling with your pet, it is very important to plan ahead to keep you and your best friend safe and comfortable on the road. Here are some helpful tips to follow that will make your travel experience a great one:

What to Bring:pet traveling

  • Pet carrier
  • Food
  • Water
  • Bowls for food and water
  • Leash or harness
  • Collar with tags
  • Baggies for cleanup
  • Bedding
  • Toys
  • Litter and litter box if traveling with your cat
  • Medical records

Helpful Tips:

  • Ensure your pet has a proper collar with up-to-date contact information.
  • Consider a first-aid kit with tweezers, gauze and antiseptic.
  • Keep a health certificate and photo of your pet with you while traveling.
  • Use a travel carrier or harness. It’s safest for your animal to be in a pet carrier or wearing a secured harness when traveling. Many pet-supply retails sell seat belt adapters, car seats and cargo barriers.
  • Never leave your pet in the car unattended.
  • Have frequent pit stops for exercise and bathroom breaks.

Remember when traveling, if you need a place to stay for the night, Red Roof Inn is a pet friendly hotel where we consider your pet part of the family and they always stay free! Don’t forget to save 15% during the month of February on your stay with us and to enter in our SPOTlight on Pet Travel Sweepstakes!

Meet Louie, My New Kitten

My favorite Christmas present I got this year was my new kitten named Louie. As a major animal lover, I have always wanted my very own pet and I finally have one! Louie is 3 months old and I absolutely love him! He loves to play and he especially loves to cuddle in my lap. I love knowing that if I ever have to travel, I can bring Louie along when I stay at Red Roof Inn with no extra charge!



Here are some fun facts about cats I got off of Cat Time:

  1. The average cat sleeps 16-18 hours per day. (No wonder Louie loves cuddling in my lap most of the day!)
  2. Most cats are lactose intolerant and should not be given cow’s milk.
  3. A male cat is called a “Tom” and a female cat is called a “Queen.” (Louie is a Tom.)1419704639502
  4. Cats have more than 100 different vocal sounds. (Louie has a silent meow and a loud meow. He mostly wants food or attention when he meows.)
  5. Cats can run up to 30 miles per hour. (Louie runs this fast whenever there is a loud noise!)
  6. A cat can jump approximately seven times its height. (Right now, Louie can hardly jump up to my bed, but he is still growing!)
  7. A cat’s sense of smell is approximately 14 times greater than that of a human.
  8. Cats have five toes on each front paw, but only four toes on each back paw.
  9. Cats who fall five stories have a 90 percent survival rate.
  10. A cat’s whiskers aren’t just for show – they help cats detect objects and navigate in the dark, especially since cats cannot see in complete darkness, only at low light levels.
  11. Humans greet each other by shaking hands; cats greet one another by touching their noses together.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas just like I did and a great New Year’s! Make sure to follow the Red Roof dog, Mac, on twitter at @redroofmac.
