    1. I read this book about a month ago in preparation for our stay at the Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver, BC. I wanted to hold off on writing my review until I visited the actual hotel so I could see how well the book represented things. I must say that my initial impression of an absolutely charming and heartwarming story were only confirmed when I walked into the hotel lobby. The book does a wonderful job of portraying the hotel and surrounding area--even though the style of illustrations are not exact [...]

    2. Okay, I couldn't stop the tears at the end (happy tears though). What a sweet, true, story of a stray cat who decides one rainy night, to take up residence in a Canadian hotel. Of course, Mr. Foster decideds that the cat can come in out of the rain, but that once it stops raining, the cat's Got To Go. Well, of course, the cat knows that he's found his permenant home, and just smiles inside despite Mr. Foster's words. And, it's pretty clear from the start, that the cat would be right.This is such [...]

    3. This is an adorable and heartwarming (mostly true) story, and I’d have given it 5 stars except for: 1. just a tad too much assuming exactly and in detail what the cat is saying and 2. oh, the poor dog, sort of. I’d now love to go to the Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver; I love resident cats, and dogs too, at hotels & inns. This is a wonderful story about a real hotel cat. I love that the formerly stray cat is let in out of the rain, that it rains so often in Vancouver, and especially like the l [...]

    4. Cute story about a stray gray cat who's determined to live in the Sylvia Hotel, despite the fact that cats aren't allowed. No matter how many times he's put out, he always finds a way back in, charming people along the way. I loved the picture of Mr. Foster trying to put the cat out while the cat is clinging to the doorpost for all he's worth. Now, I knew this cat was going to get his way somehow, and he does. Typical cat! The story is based on a real cat who lives at a hotel near the author. Ni [...]

    5. The story of a stray cat, who decides he does not want to be a stray anymore, "No Cats Allowed" is a sweetly told tale of adopting an animalmewhat against one's will. The manager of a hotel lets the cat inside one rainy night, and after a series of adventures where the cat proves himself to be particularly useful in his new home, the manager begrudgingly accepts that he (and the hotel) have been adopted by a cat.

    6. A stray cat decides he has found his home in a Vancouver hotel one rainy night, but the manager says he has got to go when the rain stops. Will the cat be doomed to the stray life forever?I love books where cats seem to adopt buildings for their homes. They really do have minds of their own.

    7. If you live in, or stayed in, Vancouver, you'll sympathise with the cat who came in from the rain. Stylish art and a yarny tale make this a great book for a rainy evening, i.e. any evening in the city where it's set.

    8. A charming story in a charming hotel! Anyone who has visited Vancouver and The Sylvia will be especially enchanted.

    9. This is a sweet book that my daughter and I read. Here in the drought-ravaged West, we would welcome all that rain but cats everywhere appreciate an open window.
