PICS: Book your furry friend into SA's revamped luxury pet hotel

Shake you and your furry friends' tails on over to South Africa's bright new location for the @Frits Pet Hotel in Bree Street. 

The new location is bigger, punnier and has expanded its paw reach to include a whole new section, sure to frisk to the whiskers of your feline friends. 

The hotel building sits comfy at 261 Bree Street opposite a beloved human hotel and its restaurant of Fire & Ice. You're not likely to miss the building - which sticks out like a bright blue thumb amid the grey haze of the Cape's CBD buildings. 

ICYMI: Shake your tail on over to one of these 5 pet-friendly stays across SA 

Whether your pooch is looking for a quick visit to splash in the 'Pawty Pool' or your kitty needs a change of scenery, @Frits is good to go for day visits or overnight stays, suited to the schedule of the working pet owne.

You could also opt to check your furry friend in overnight in one of the dog or cat rooms, which each don a rather punny name and is decorated accordingly.

The kitty division includes:

You can select one of the following punnily themed rooms to host your feline friend:

  • Cat Middleton - cats are undoubtebly royal and regal by nature as they nonchalantly look down upon us mere humanoid peasants and wave us off with their floofy tails and indifference. So, why not give your prestigious cat the royal treatment with these Victorian-styled rooms?

  • The Little Meowmaid - these rooms are purrfect for the rare species of water-loving kitties, as well as those looking to act out catching their own fish and eating it too.

  • Austin Meowers - having trouble getting your cat to behave? Well, this room decked out in true 60s - 80s era decor is sure to keep the frisky cats at ease with its vibrant colours and funky, comfy bed nooks and pods.

  • Mister Meowgi - for the zen kitties, the Mister Meowgi room is the ideal tranquil room spot. Featuring white lanterns that drop elegantly from the ceiling to intricate and simplistic wooden wall tree designs and classic Japanese style hut beds, these rooms are sure to keep your kitty's whiskers and alert ears at ease. This collection of rooms is dedicated to Klue's late father, who passed not long before Frits, as he was quite fond of carpentry - an art which these rooms showcase beautifully throughout their decor.

  • Alley Cat - these rooms are for the edgier cats, the cats with quick claws and a little bit of grit and a rebel streak. Its street art and urban interior is sure to allow your puss to kick off their boots and embrace their inner alley cat edge.

There is also a decked out play area or 'Catio' featuring a range of grassy hills, wall boxes and platforms to keep your kitty entertained all day. It's also an idea spot to just give your feline a chilled place to watch the scenic view of Table mountain and the city and, perhaps, even the unruly pigeons on neighbouring rooftops:
