CatHotel Tips, Tricks & Strategy Guide: 4 Hints You Need to Know

CatHotel – Hotel for Cute Cats is a new game from Tivola, which is available for iOS and Android mobile platforms. In the game you have a chance to manage your own cattery, as you get to care for cats, feed them, play with them, and make sure they’re happy and contented by the time their owners come back for them. You can build your cat hotel from a small one to a five-star luxury hotel, and get to care for and feed six different breeds of cats – that’s only a few, but then again, the main thing here is taking care of these cats, and fewer breeds means less to think about, as each of them has their own unique quirks.

Managing a cat hotel and taking care of cats means there’s a lot for you to learn if you’re new to the game. But first, you’ll have to start with the bare essentials. So join us as we bring you our CatHotel strategy guide that will fill you in on some basic tips and tricks.

1. Don’t Skip The Tutorial If You’re New To The Franchise

Tivola also has a game called DogHotel, so if you’ve played that game before, you’re free to skip the tutorial and move on to taking care of your cats. Otherwise, you’ll have to grin and bear it, for the CatHotel tutorial is quite a long one. It will brief you on all the basics of the game, so a little patience is needed – it will be worth it in the end.

2. Check The Blackboard To See Your Cats’ Needs

The blackboard behind your cat will tell you everything you need to know about your cat – what does it need and what should you do? You will either see a green bar, a yellow bar, or no bar at all under the following categories: sleep, playtime, cleaning, and medical attention. If there is no bar at all, then you may have to take care of the given category post-haste. Also make sure you’re feeding your cats regularly and giving them water because some activities, including playtime and cleaning, seep their energy.

3. Don’t Buy Every Item You See In The Store Just Because They Look Cool

The in-game store has a wide variety of different items you can purchase, but there are some that won’t really have any use for you in the game. For instance, you’ll see items that can be used to furnish your cat hotel “to your tastes” – these decorative items are generally for aesthetic purposes only, but don’t affect gameplay in any way. Always check an item’s description so you can make sure you’re buying something useful.

4. Buy Hotel Stars So You Can Accommodate More Cats

By tapping the stars in the top middle portion of your screen, you can buy hotel stars with the coins that you’ve earned. More hotel stars means more cats can stay at your cattery, as well as more items you can purchase in the store.

This is our quick list of tips and hints for CatHotel – Hotel for Cute Cats. If you know additional hints for the game that you want us to include in this guide, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Unless it was for an older version, You CANNOT buy stars anymore in the game. I have tried to do so, and the game will not let me, and I'm 4 points away from trying so desperately to get to 2 stars. And I've bought every single upgraded pieces of furniture and etc. And I STILL can't get those 4 measly points to get me to the 2 stars point. And I'm playing on a Samsung galaxy tablet. PLEASE help me out in what else to do..... Thank you.
