Photos From an Adorable, Literature-Inspired Cat Fashion Show at The Algonquin Hotel

Yesterday was the annual Cat Fashion Show at New York’s Algonquin Hotel, where eight cats were decked in wonderfully delightful costumes. Ada Nieves, cat fashion designer (amazingly, yes), dedicated this year’s designs to the Algonquin Round Table, the famous group of New York’s literary elite who gathered at the hotel in the 1920s. The Algonquin Copy Cats Round Table collection honors authors and writers who could’ve been a part of the bunch. Matilda, the hotel’s light gray resident pet, prowled around as patrons bid on raffles for feline goods. The benefit, held in partnership with Bideawee, a pet welfare organization, raised several thousand dollars.
