The Algonquin Cat's Annual Celebration - Thursday, August 3, 2017

The Algonquin Cat's Annual Celebration

The Algonquin Hotel in Midtown Manhattan has been the home to 12 cats residing within its legendary walls since the 1930s, including eight Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat who has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue, with the current Hamlet VIII beginning his residence in September 2017, when Matilda III retired and was adopted by a member of the hotel's staff. The Algonquin adopted Hamlet from Bideawee in Wantagh, Long Island, where he resided after being found as a stray living in a feral cat colony. Hamlet sports the signature Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) "eartip," which signifies that he has been neutered. Very popular with hotel guests, The Algonquin Cat receives fan mail and gifts from all around the world.

Each summer, The Algonquin Hotel opens its doors to celebrate its special feline resident 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.
