A woman from the United States is travelling in India - but she is not alone. Giving her company are her 14 pets - six cats, seven dogs and one goat. The Gujarat hotel she checked into this week asked her to leave saying they don't allow pets in their hotel. Since she had a booking with the hotel for three days, she refused to go and called up the police.
"She came around 3 AM on April 9 and the security guard allotted her a room. Next morning I got to know she has pets and when I asked her to vacate the room, she denied by saying that she has booked and paid room for till April 11," Pradeep Agarwal, the hotel manager in Ahmedabad told news agency ANI.
"Before I tried calling the police, the woman called someone. Police Inspector of Kagdapith, reached our hotel. Generally, the inspector does not come on one call, so she must have called the Embassy", the manager claimed.
The woman said that she rescued one of the dogs in January 2015 in Uttarkashi and goat in March 2015.
"I am trying to find a loving and caring family for my pets. Someone assured me to help but he is late and the hotel management wants me to vacate this place," she was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
According to some reports, other guests were troubled by the presence of pets and complained the hotel owner. The tourist reportedly left for another city after staying at the hotel for three days.
