Forbes Traveler has a page-view-baiting slide show on wacky requests rich guests make at hotels.The most ridiculous of course comes from one in Miami Beach.
A Brit traveled to the Beach to meet his girlfriend, and something just felt so right they decided she should move back to London with him. Awww. Only one problem: She owned a tiger. So the man asked the concierge at the Setai if he could arrange to move the big cat to London, and of course he did.
Apparently the couple is still living happily together, but the poor tiger hates British cuisine and doesn't understand the humor on the BBC. The cat actually really loves Girl Aloud, though.
