Hot Summer Cat Events from L.A. To N.Y.

A sizzling trio of celebrity cat events promise hot August nights for good kitty causes. Mark your calendars.

August 2, in New York at the Algonquin Hotel

Matilda Algonquin cat birthday 2014

My favorite celebrity cat in NYC is Matilda the Algonquin Hotel cat and summer would not be complete without attending her birthday party. I’ll be there with bells on and if you’re in the area, I hope you attend. This year, I can’t wait to meet special guest, Tara The Hero Cat. This year the event benefits one of our favorite animal advocacy groups, The Mayor’s Alliance of New York.

For more info about the Matilda event and the amazing work the Mayor’s Alliance does to helps animals, please visit Matilda, The Algonquin Cat Benefit Birthday Party.


Lil BUb- David Yow-book event


It’s no secret how I feel about Lil BUB but I’m curious as a cat how this wild combo will work on stage. Bub is always Bub but will David Yow, artist, punk rocker, cat man turned cat writer wow? I’ll be speaking with the man himself next week and sharing an exclusive interview, book review/giveaway next Sunday. If you’re in the Chicago area, you’ll want to get your paws on some Bub/Yow tix pronto. Info and tickets 

Yow’s book, Copycat: And A Litter Of Other Cats will be released from Askashic Books on August 5. I already have a copy and let’s just say, it’s unlike any cat book I’ve ever seen.



CATbaret 2014


Our friends at Kitty Bungalow’s Charm School for Wayward Cats, a kitten rescue organization in L.A. are hosting their annual CATbaret, a star-studded event to benefit kittens. Whether you’re a cat lover or a theater lover, come out for an unforgettable night of sensational singers and dazzling dancers hosted by funnyman Fred Willard!

  1. What FAB events!!! We don’t live close enough to attend any but look foward to hearing about them all!!!
    Skeeter and Izzy and the Feral Gang + Twig and Peanut and Romeo (aka Sam) >^..^<

  2. Those are such great events! If I go to NYC in the future, I’ll definitely stay at Algonquin 🙂
    Love the video. It’s so cute and funny!

  3. I would like to visit Catbaret (ok not me I’m a dog… my staff would like to be there… but wait… that could be interesting when I would join them….). The cat fashion show on broadway sounds great too! Why we haven’t such cool events?

  4. What great events! My human is envious of the people who get to see Matilda and David Yow at their events – at least she’ll probably be attending the CATbaret event.
