The Famous literary hotel, has had a resident feline since the 1920’s when one wandered in off the street and then owner/manager manager Frank Case, took him in and named him Billy. A later cat was named Hamlet by none other than the great John Barrymore. All since have been named Hamlet or Matilda. It has since been home to eleven cats the current being the third Matilda.
The resident feline has job duties that include, napping and looking adorable. Matilda is free to wander anywhere she wishes, except the kitchen and dining area. The birthday party, held every year helps raise awareness to the constantly growing homeless cat situation. Buy tickets early because space is limited and it’s a great cause!
If you have a pet friendly office and would like to foster or adopt an office mascot. Studies show, people love to see Office cats working. All cats are spayed, healthy and microchipped. Adoption fees are 25$ right now.
