HAMLET: THE ALGONQUIN CAT

Written by Leslie Martini & Illustrated by Massimo Mongiardo

August 3, 2018; Petaluma, California—A street cat is swept up into a glamorous life at the historic Algonquin Hotel in New York City, a well-known gathering place for writers, editors, and artists. With his predecessor Matilda as his guide, the scrappy Hamlet must learn the ropes of his luxurious new home. But will this stray cat take to life indoors? Hamlet seeks guidance from the writers of the famous Algonquin Round Table, where voices from the past help him find the courage to take his rightful place as king.

 

For those whose imaginations were captured by The Plaza's Eloise, they will find her feline counterpart in Hamlet: The Algonquin Cat.

Dog Friendly hotels NYC – Hotel Pennsylvania: One of the biggest pet friendly hotels in NYC!

pet friendly hotels nyc One of the top dog friendly hotels in NYC. If you don’t travel with just the humans in your family, we’re the hotel for you. We love to welcome our furry friends and your pawed family members into our hotel. We don’t care if you have a Yorkie or an English Mastiff, we accept your family how you are. That’s right.

At just $25 per stay (plus tax), we’re not just pet-friendly; we’re wallet friendly.

All sized dogs are welcome at Hotel Pennsylvania.

As a hotel that proudly sponsors the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show every year, it wouldn’t be right to discriminate on any dog simply based on breed or size. We love all dogs and we wouldn’t want any of them banned from our premises. As it is often said, dogs aren’t our whole lives but, they do make our lives whole. So, if you’re traveling with a dog, know that you can stay with us. We’re one of the top dog-friendly hotels in NYC, just ask our four-legged fans.

If you do bring your pet to stay with us, don’t forget to share some pictures with the hashtag #HotelPennPets. We’re making a collage.

When you bring your pet with you, make sure to prepare properly. Our policy does dictate the following.

  • All pets must be kennelled when you’re not in the room.
  • Guests are responsible for any damage done by their pet.

Did we mention? We’re also a cat-friendly hotel.

The same rules that apply to our canine friends apply to our feline friends as well. We watched Homeward Bound and know that the two can live harmoniously and create some amazing adventures. That being said, DO NOT release any of them into our hallways.

If you want to take your pet for a walk, Hotel Penn is nearby the Hudson River Greenway, Bryant Park, and Madison Square Park.

Humans of New York meets The Dogist:
Photographic Encounters with 1,000 Dogs

CITY OF DOGS
N e w York Dogs, T h e i r N e i g h b o r h o o d s ,
a n d t h e P eo p l e W h o Lov e Them

CITY OF DOGS combines moving stories with candid
images to reveal the multifaceted relationships canine
New Yorkers have with their human counterparts.
Enlivened with striking photography, this book pays
tribute to the five boroughs and the dogs who fill them
with loyalty, love, and open-heartedness.
As joyful equalizers, dogs cut through boundaries of social
class and bring people together. Encapsulating the
character of New York and its neighborhoods, Foster and
Scott capture a wide range, including:
• Famous writer and Brooklynite
Jacqueline Woodson, whose
beloved Toffee taught her how to slow down, while her puppy, Shadow,
keeps her active.
• The dogs of Homeland Security at JFK airport in Queens, who maintain
the safety of hundreds of thousands of people traveling each day.
• The Moschellas from Staten Island, who learned to embrace surprise
with the arrival of their triplet children and two dogs.
• Will from the East Village and his corgi, Hobbes, who has taught
him unconditional love and motivates him to spend nights improving
himself professionally with online classes.
• Alex from the Bronx, who owes his sense of purpose to his pit bulls,
Luci and Max.

This perfect holiday gift book uncovers 80 dogs’ different personalities—from the
showboaters to the shy—and the owners who adore them. Bestselling writer Ken Foster and
renowned photographer Traer Scott illustrate the marvelous effect these dogs have on
their urban kingdom.
Ken Foster is the author of several books on dogs, including: The Dogs Who Found Me;
the New York Times bestseller Dogs I Have Met: And the People They Found; and the
national bestseller I'm a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America's
Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet. His writing has
appeared in McSweeney's, The Believer, the San Francisco
Chronicle, Bomb, Fence, and Bark.
Traer Scott is an award-winning photographer and
author of ten books, including the bestseller Shelter Dogs
as well as Nocturne: Creatures of the Night, Finding Home:
Shelter Dogs and Their Stories and the forthcoming
Radiant: Farm Animals Up Close and Personal. Her work
is exhibited around the world and has been featured in
National Geographic, Life, Vogue, People, and O: The
Oprah Magazine, and on The New York Times’s Lens blog.

TWO NEW BREEDS WILL MAKE THEIR DEBUT AT
THE 2019 WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW
AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
 
Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen And Nederlandse Kooikerhondje Will Compete For The First Time Ever In The 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
On Monday, February 11 And Tuesday, February 12, 2019
At The World's Most Famous Arena

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
 
New York, NY (October 8, 2018) - The Madison Square Garden Company and the Westminster Kennel Club have announced that two new breeds, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen and the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje, will compete for the very first time at the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show when it returns to The World's Most Famous Arena on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12, 2019.Tickets for the events at Madison Square Garden are on sale now.
 
Debuting at the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen, more affectionately known as the "GBGV" or "Grand," first appeared as early as the end of the 19th century in the region of Vendéen in France. Primarily a pack hunter in their native homeland and throughout Europe, the GBGV is capable of hunting a wide variety of game from the rabbit to wild boar. It is favored as a hunter, companion and friend to those willing to take the time to nurture and appreciate the characteristics that make the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen a unique breed.
 
Also competing for the first time this year is the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje. For centuries, the agile little orange-red and white dog from Holland has used their gaily waving tail to lure ducks in an elaborate pond trapping system called "Eendenkooi." The breed was saved from extinction in 1939 by the Baroness von Hardenbroek von Ammerstol and the breed's foundation litter was born in 1942. The "Kooiker" competes in agility, obedience/rally, barn hunt and flyball with enthusiastic cheerfulness, but is also content to share a favorite sofa with their owner.
 
"The first year of eligibility to enter Westminster is a historic milestone for breeds," said Gail Miller Bisher, director of communications, Westminster Kennel Club. "We congratulate these two breed clubs for earning American Kennel Club recognition. We look forward to welcoming their Best in Breed winners in February when they make history competing on the green carpet at Madison Square Garden for the first time."
 
Tickets for the events at Madison Square Garden are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.msg.com, Ticketmaster at 1-866-858-0008 or the Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall and Beacon Theatre box offices. For group sales, call 212-465-6080. Accessible and companion seats are available via the Disabled Services Department at 212-465-6115.For information regarding all event schedules for Westminster Week and tickets through the Westminster Kennel Club office, go to westminsterkennelclub.org.

Cats Take To The Catwalk As The Algonquin Hotel

Hosts Cat Fashion Show And Animal Fundraiser

On August 2nd 

**Annual Event Celebrates the Official Party Debut of Resident Cat Hamlet VIII,

And Aims To Raise Over $10,000 For Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals**

NEW YORK, NY (July XX, 2018) — A group of feline fashion “mewdels” will take to the runway (held safely in the arms of their owners) in one-of-a-kind outfits designed by certified animal fashion designer Ada Nieves, in celebration of Hamlet VIII, The Algonquin Cat, the hotel’s famous feline resident.

The Annual Celebration & Cat Fashion Show will take place on Thursday, August 2nd, from 5:00pm to 7:30pm. This year's theme celebrates “The Purring 20’s”, the time of the great authors and celebrities who frequented the hotel’s famous Round Table. It also marks the official party debut of Hamlet, a young American Shorthair ginger cat who reigns over the Front Desk and observes from his own private treehouse, endearing himself to hotel guests and visitors alike, with warm greetings.

Highlights of the evening will include:

  • Cocktails, Hors d’oeuvres and Desserts
  • The Cat Fashion Show
  • A silent auction, featuring a variety of items, including Pet Tree Houses and Sleepypods, amongst other great pet treats, toys and cat foods
  • An on-site mobile adoption unit, that will be in front of the hotel that day from 3pm-7pm

Additional funds will be raised throughout the evening with raffle prizes, including a variety of pet products curated by the event’s co-chair, Pet Lifestyle Expert and author, Sandy Robins.

Tickets are available for $75 per person, which includes the reception and fashion show. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. For additional information, to purchase tickets, or to bid on Silent Auction items, visit https://www.501auctions.com/algonquincelebration.

Guests can also view advance copies of the new illustrated book, Hamlet – The Algonquin Cat, by Lesley Martini, with illustrations by Massimo Mongiardo, scheduled for release in

September 2018.

Guests are encouraged to wear their best feline-inspired outfit from The Purring 20’s and share photos from the event on social media using the hashtag #AlgonquinCat.

ABOUT THE ALGONQUIN CAT

For many years the history of The Algonquin Cat was believed to have its origins in the 1930’s, when a hungry stray cat came wandering into the hotel for food and water. After the hotel acquired an out-of-print book written by the hotel’s first general manager, Frank Case, a chapter was discovered about a cat named Billy. Based on the timeline of the book, the hotel is now proud to say the lineage of The Algonquin Cat dates back to the early 1920's. Two days after Billy passed, another stray cat wandered into the hotel and The Algonquin welcomed Rusty. The famous classical actor, John Barrymore, was a resident at the time in the early 1930's, and Rusty was renamed Hamlet in his honor. Hamlet is said to have been Barrymore's greatest stage role. The hotel has had a total of 12 cats, including Billy. The lineage includes eight Hamlets and three Matildas. Each cat that has reigned at The Algonquin has been a rescue. The current Hamlet began his residence in July 2017 with short visits with guests until he became comfortable in his surroundings. In fact, Hamlet has become so personable and engaging with guests that he has earned the nickname, “Hammy”. He loves a good nuzzle behind the ears and is curious about everything and everyone.

Today, Hamlet is looked after by the hotel’s Chief Cat Officer, Alice De Almeida. The hotel’s executive chef cooks him special meals on holidays. He receives fan mail and gifts constantly, from around the world. He has recently been the subject of a painting that hangs above the Front Desk, by New York artist Marcus Pierno.  Hamlet can be found on Facebook,
Twitter and Instagram.  He can also be reached via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Algonquin Hotel is located at 59 W 44th Street, New York, New York 10036. www.algonquinhotel.com.
