Guests are also encouraged to adopt a pet from the Animal League mobile Adoption Unit, which will be parked in front of the hotel on the day of event from 3 PM to 7 PM.

Additionally, a one-of-a-kind portrait of Matilda by local artist Jenny Belin will be auctioned with all proceeds benefiting North Shore Animal League America.
The tradition of having a resident pet at The Algonquin began in the 1930s when a straggly stray cat wandered in through the hotels front door looking for food and shelter. Owner Frank Case, the consummate host most famous for inviting Dorothy Parker and her friends to form the legendary Algonquin Round Table in the hotels dining room in the 20s, welcomed the cat as he did every other guest, and a tradition was born.
Matilda III prepares for her debut after being personally chosen at the North Shore Animal League America by the now-contentedly retired Matilda II. Matilda III eagerly awaits her introduction to the public and is fully prepared to assume her role in a storied Algonquin tradition.
She can be contacted directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and can be followed on Twitter @Algonqueen. Her face book fan page is Matilda The Algonquin Cat.
