The Algonquin Cat's Annual Celebration

The Algonquin Hotel in Midtown Manhattan has had a total of 11 cats residing within its legendary walls since the 1930s, including seven Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat who has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue, with the current Matilda beginning her residence in December 2010. Very popular with hotel guests, she receives fan mail and gifts constantly, from all around the world.

Each summer, Matilda and The Algonquin Hotel open their doors to celebrate her birthday with a party, cat fashion show, and adoption event benefitting the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals and promoting cat and kitten adoption in New York City.

The Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036

It's not quite New York Fashion Week, but eight felines will be strutting their stuff in one-of-a-kind outfits designed by certified animal fashion designer Ada Nieves in celebration of The Algonquin Hotel's most famous resident, Matilda III, The Algonquin Cat.

This year's theme is a tribute to Tony award-winning musicals, and highlights will include:

Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts

Cat fashion show

Special performance from Cats, the musical

Silent auction featuring a variety of items, including Pet Tree Houses, Sleepypod, one-year supply of Merrick cat food, and a pair of tickets to Cats, featuring a backstage meet-and-greet

Special gift for all guests from Cat Sushi

On-site mobile adoption unit with cats and kittens available for adoption from Linda's Cat Assistance

Guests are encouraged to wear their best feline-inspired outfit and share photos from the event on social media using the hashtag #AlgonquinCat.
