People love their pets. When they leave town and can't take them along they want to leave them some place nice.

A viewer called and suggested News on 6 reporter Rick Wells check out the guest rooms at a "cats only" place in south Tulsa.

If I were only a cat, the Feline Specialties Clinic at 9702 S Riverside Drive would be purrrfect.

Dr. Jennifer O'Cain shows Rick around. “This is most people's favorite room, it's called the Alley Cat Room. We have a lot of requests, lots of request for this room." At least for a weekend, your cat can sleep in a trashcan.

Each room has a different decor. A cat named Sammy likes one room because he can hide. There is also the “Pink Princess Room." Each room has a wide windowsill for sunning, a bird feeder outside a big picture window in each room, so the cats can watch the birds and dream.

Occasionally, they'll have kittens up for adoption as well.

They also have cat baths. Wet cats get put into a special hair dryer. "We try to make it as comfortable as possible for all the cats."

There is also a gift shop. With the holidays coming, why not something for the collar. Or better yet, take you kitty for a walk in the kitty cat stoller.
