Meow at the Algonquin

Last week's Reception and Cats in Fashion benefit at the Algonquin Hotel for Matilda and friends drew about 150 people and loads of cats in costume. All proceeds from the event went to the Bideawee animal shelter.

Cat costumes were the biggest attraction. In addition, pet lifestyle expert and author Nikki Moustaki hosted the event. And let's not forget the guest of honor, none other than Matilda, the cat, who is the Algonquin Hotel's current in-house cat. The hotel has had a house cat since the 1930s, and Matilda has been with the hotel since at least 2007.
