This 5-star hotel is under extreme backlash over the removal of cats

It seems that the beginning of Lunar New Year isn’t for Shangri-La The Fort, the luxury 5-star resort located at Bonifacio Global City.



News over the internet community have circulated that our beloved #catsofBGC was eradicated by the hotel management and called a pest control company, and removed our beloved cats... like a thief of the night.

#catsofbgc
Me during my visit on October 2017,see my story here.

Last February 14th it was reported on Facebook that a total of 38 cats (few of them are still pregnant cats) are suddenly missing. These cats are living freely in the park of Ayala property One Bonifacio High Street Part next to Shangri-La The Fort hotel and commercial building, and these cats are no ordinary fellas. They are loved by the community, by the people who lives and works near the area, fed them and keep them safe, and there are animal advocate groups who helps to give vaccine and neuter them.


It was reported online by the animal-lovers community that the management of Shangri-la The Fort hired a pest-control company, PestBust Philippines to remove the cats.



I am one of the many people who are feel blessed each time I visit them after my work. They give unexplainable relief, and happiness.

As of this writing, the hotel’s Facebook page are continuously being fired by lowest rating score ever, and the animal-lover community are getting furious. As of this publishing, Shangri-La The Fort Facebook pagehave the lowest rating of 2.2 stars, having over 3,600K 1-star ratings, the worst ratings in Shangri-La hotels history.

Update today, February 21, 10:19AM: Shangri-La The Fort rating is now sink to 1.8 stars on their Facebook Page.

The hotel management have issued a statement on their Facebook page, but the people are not into it.

There is still the huge question

Where are the #CatsofBGC

People are furious and keeping on sharing their sentiments on social media. I took a liberty to screenshot some of the comments and reviews of many concern citizens.

The bad reviews are keep on flowing like lava and there is no sign of stopping. Unfortunately, last night it was reported by many concern animal lovers that their reviews on Shangri-la The Fort Facebook page are gone missing. Turns out, it seems that Shangri-La have started deleting and blocking Facebook accounts that give bad reviews related to the missing cats.

So is this how the 5-star hotel awesome move to get away with the issue?

They just made the people more furiously angry.

This 5-star hotel is under extreme backlash over the removal of cats

Yesterday, 18th of February Shangri-La The Fort released a new statement on their Facebook account.

This statement garnered 2,100k reactions and comments from the furious netizens. Tsk Tsk.

Those cats are a huge deal for us… for me because they gave us happiness and they are part of the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) Community, they are FAMILY.

What the hotel management did is a clear violation of Philippine's Animal Welfare Act.

UPDATE, February 21, 10:21AM: Still, Shangri-La The Fort can't provide us the PROOF OF LIFE (photos or videos) if their employees truly adopted these cats. The community is furious and we are not stopping until this hotel management pay the damages.

This will be a big fight, and I doubt that animal lover community will just brushed this off.
Shangri-La The Fort, good luck to you.

Because we animal-lovers believes in huge KARMA on hurting innocent animals.

How about you? How much do you care for your pets and animals around you?

    1. So true. But most of these are too old to be adopted. They are already used to the place. Many condo dwellers can't adopt pets due to building policies. That's why we in the community are finding other options that they live happily.

  8. I guess they didn't want to be used as a litter box anymore. LOL. Kidding aside, I think Shangri-la The Fort overstepped their boundaries. I mean these animals aren't roaches for them to call pest control. They could have just made an event for people to adopt the cats. It would have been good PR to sponsor a "adopt a cat" activity- like hotel with a heart kind of thing.

  24. I do believe that the hotel took steps not to immediately harm the cats. Of course, relocating them may cause harm to them in the future as they will be in unfamiliar territory, so it's not exactly right. I think the hotel acted in its best interest but definitely went about it the wrong way. If the cats have been adopted - great! If they have just been moved somewhere else, not so great. Hoping for some answers soon! x

The damage to the reputation of Shangri-la must be considerable and I'm not sure if they would be able to 'undo' what has occurred.

  34. This situation is quite a tough one because there is a bit unknown. Being such a big international company, I feel instinctively that Shangri-la would have made efforts to remove the cats in the most humane way possible without harm, but of course unfortunately there is so much unknown for the wellbeing of the cats. I do feel it is a bit unfair the way many have gone to immediately rate the hotel so poorly, because these ratings can truly make or break a business. But at the same time I do understand it because people want answers. It's a tough situation!

If the hotel truly did relocate the cats to residential locations (which doesn't really say in a person's home - they could have dumped them into a residential area where they are left to fend for themselves) then why not bust their butts to get these cats back to the habitat they are familiar with and where they are loved. Their hotel is suffering so significantly that it should be a priority to get them all back to the park within 24 hours and clearly they are unable to do that.

But as a person who has a severe allergy to cats, having them there would have been a problem to me. There are tons of suffering people who have cat allergies who couldn't go to these places. I agree they should have removed them in a humane way. But the problem is once you have done it and you didn't inform anyone, how could they do anything which would make the people who loved the cats being there happy. I really and truly hope they are safe, and I understand people's love for animals. (I used to have cats as a child and I adored them.) I think they may have been caught in a no win situation.

    1. I agree. Actually some of those cats are waiting for adoption and just finalizing the paper works.

    1. We expect that they will. However, we found out that even its a conglomerate brand, a huge hotel also have weaknesses.

  69. I understand what the hotel was trying to accomplish for their business and brand, but I sure do hope that all of the cats that lost their place there are okay!

  70. This is just crazy! Those poor cats have not harmed anyone. At least they have people like you and others to call them out on their behavior.

    1. There was no reported that those cats had harmed anyone. It felt sick to my stomach and I'm worried about them.

  71. Wow. That is crazy, I can't believe that happened. So glad animal lovers are showing solidarity and ensuring these cats are taken care of.

  74. I can't believe they would do this, but the backlash is spectacular. It sounds like the cats were really important to the people.

    1. Yeah it is. They already saved many hoomans with depressions, and even attempted suicide. These cats are important, also the other animals.

  75. Let us give Shangri-la the fort the benefit of the doubt. Hope they really relocated the cats in a place where they will be fed and taken care of. Before i got pregnant, we have lots of cats at home. We name them alphabetically and the last we've got is named None because we couldn't think of a name as of that moment. Haha, i remember we have Angel, collete, Fedra, george, hana.

    1. Yeah, I agree. It is sad and disappointing.
      I can't support a business that treats life unfairly.

      If they change their management and how they do their business, maybe I will have a change of heart.
