Loews Orlando: pet friendly?

On their website they're pet friendly:

Yet, the manager is having all of the local cats killed:

"Loews Hotels at Universal Orlando had a model TNR [sic: Trap/Neuter/Return] program. It was a great example of how it can work, and the hotel even built “cat mansions” for its ferals to eat comfortably from.

Two days ago, however, hotel staff completely reversed their stance and began trapping the cats in their cared-for feral colony and supposedly taking them to a local shelter, citing guest safety as the reason. I think we all know what fate feral cats have at shelters — they are generally not adoptable, so sending them there means almost certain death.

From what I have heard, there are only 10 cats at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel and 12 cats at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort. Twenty-two precious, innocent lives. The fact that there are so few on such a large property shows that TNR works.

...

It was confirmed today that a mother and her four kittens were trapped at another Universal property, Hard Rock Hotel, and brought to Orange County Animal Services yesterday — and euthanized today."

I can't believe that they can do that to the cats who doesn't even mind their business and yet they have harmed those cat and put it in cages. How pity are those cats being trapped! I think its about time to do something.

Actually it's continuing... I'm curious if this is their definition of being a "pet friendly" chain:

The Loews Royal Pacific, Loews Portofino, and Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando Resorts in Orlando, Florida—self-proclaimed “animal-friendly” hotels—made the cruel decision to start trapping and removing the cats who’ve called their property home for years.

These cats are being left unattended inside traps, in 89-degree heat, and their caregivers have been forbidden from feeding them. Loews has resisted our calls to stop the trapping—only a massive public outcry can stop this inhumane treatment.
