Posted on 1 March 2019

atFrits is looking for the new ‘Kate Meows’. The hotel has been around since 2015, but has expanded its brand into even more glamorous avenues: modelling.

Owner Yanic Klue figured it was time to start something new, and launched the modelling competition on Tuesday 26 February to meet the demands of the industry, calling all cats and dogs.

‘There’s no such thing as an ugly dog or cat,’ says Klue, ‘and brands from [pet food to pet insurance] have specific requirements.’
