Of Napoleon, Cats and modern Napoleon admirers

I saw something quite neat on a huge billboard in Johannesburg a while back. They were advertising a documentary series about Napoleon on a TV channel and it went something like this: "During his life, Napoleon conquered all his fears, except his fear of cats..."

Can anyone comment on this? Did Napoleon hate cats?

I was watching Donald Trump's The Apprentice... and saw that in his massive hotel/casino in Atlantic City, that he named the finest room in it, the Napoleon room!! A friend of mine thought this was quite strange and that maybe Donald Trump is a closet Napoleon admirer! Can anyone comment on this? (I believe Vladimir Putin is a Napoleon admirer).
Is it rare to have such an instance... as a Hotel having a "Napoleon room?" as my friend suggests? It was breathtaking...

I had quite a chuckle over the fact that Napoleon's name at least is associated with QUALITY!!!!! :-) Deep down... people really do admire greatness and achievement... So maybe Napoleon was right when he spoke of "glory"... and "men covering themselves in glory" with their great deeds... For all the bloodshed... all that is left... and that remains... it appears... is indeed the glory...

So a further question is... are there any other famous modern personalities in the world who are Napoleon admirers?
