Tara The Hero Cat and Glamour Puss Matilda Rock NYC

1-Famous celebrity cat book

 

This is a short, sweet and hot Caturday while I’m in NYC attending a Broadway themed, fundraising fashion show by Ada Nieves for Pets with you guessed it, cats! Nine MEWdels will rock the catwalk and it’s all for a good cause. The glitzy event at the venerable Algonquin Hotel to benefit the Mayor’s Alliance of NYC Animals  Not only will there be fab cats strutting their stuff but Tara the Hero Cat is making a special appearance with Broadway cat actor Vito Vincent. Presiding over the feline festivities is Matilda, the ragdoll shelter rescue turned mascot and hotel resident superstar. Talk about a rags to riches story.

A full photo report is in the works.

I’m going early to see the kittens up for adoption from Bobbi and the Strays If you happen to be strolling by on 44th St,.the Alliance adoption van will be parked in front of the Algonquin Hotel hotel from 3:00-7:00 p.m.

Back home in the ‘burbs my cats do not feel left out. Well maybe Odin would like to be in spotlight but I can’t imagine him walking down a catwalk for all the tuna in the world. He’d rather be lounging after snorfling in the dirt looking for truffles, moles or a short cut to China. Yes, my boy has dirt boogers in his nose but he does clean up nice. Clearly reading How To Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity has not worked for Odin. Oh well, maybe in one of his other nine lives.

My favorite and extraordinary cat video this week is Lil BUB with live tigers. There no question they’re communicating with BUB in a friendly way and not as prey. The chuffing sound the tigers are making is happy and friendly greeting like, “Hey Lil BUB, you’re just like us only smaller.” Scientists have genetic proof that house cats have 95.6% of the same DNA as tigers and now we this awesome video display.

  4. yes, Odin I can feel the heat of this summer too :o) And for me you are an internet star Odin, that’s for sure ( and my nose looks always like yours, maybe we will meet each other on the way to china lol) have a great caturday!

  5. Oh I just bet that event was tons of fun……all those cat-celebs! Loved the video of Odin AND Lil Bub meeting the tigers…..there’s something about BIG cats that’s absolutely just like the smaller version – the curiosity, the beauty, the recognition…..”I Knead My Mommy” sounds adorable.

    Happy Weekend
