Yes I heard they did things like that...By "other things" I take it that you mean visiting houses of ill repute. That is another 'tradition' that has been linked to sailors - that as soon as they get paid they visit the local cathouses. Perhaps not all were like that; a few might have read books or something.
Anyway, I guess in those days 'Cat Hotel' meant something different from what it does now.
