The Algonquin Cat's Annual Celebration in the News

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.
