NYC: Attend Matilda The Algonquin Cat's Feline Fashion Show On August 3

NYC: Attend Matilda The Algonquin Cat's Feline Fashion Show On August 3

New York, NY: where you can order delivery food practically any time of day, catch a Broadway caliber performance in the subway, and attend cat fashion shows. This is why we're here, people! 


Well.... not really, but it IS a perk of living here. If you, too, are a NYC-area local, you should come out to Matilda's Annual Celebration & Cat Fashion Show, taking place at the Algonquin Hotel on Thursday, August 3, 2017.

Matilda is the Algonquin Hotel's famous resident feline - she's even been immortalized in a children's book. The Algonquin cat has been around since the 1930's and is an ongoing hotel tradition - and on August 3, Matilda is throwing a pawty to remember!

The event will feature a fashion show with eight fashionable felines strutting their stuff in designs made specifically for them by certified animal fashion designer Ada Nieves. (OK, please tell me if you have a new life plan now that you know that's a job you can have.)

The theme this year is a tribute to Tony award-winning musicals and will include:

  • Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts
  • Cat fashion show
  • Special performance from Cats (the musical)
  • Silent auction 
  • Gift for all attendees from Cat Sushi
  • On site cat and kitten adoption

Here is the schedule of events:

Matilda's Annual Celebration and Cat Fashion Show
The Algonquin Hotel, 59 West 44th Street, New York, NY 10036
