Randall has put his paws to the pavement once again, going on the prowl at The Algonquin Hotel's cat fashion show, aka "The Ladies Are Back." This chic celebration was put together for the return of the hotel's resident cat (and PawNation columnist), Matilda. Randall was there to get the scoop from special guests and pet expert/emcee Sandy Robins. Between musings with the feline models and talking cat fashion with the guests, Randall nabbed all the information you need to know about kitty couture. Get some face time with these furry fashionistas now. See Even More From the Cat Fashion Show:...

New York City Feline Fashion Show

In celebration of World Cat Day, kitties kicked the litter off their paws and shimmied into some snazzy ensembles. These felines were showing off their best catwalk for the annual cat fashion show at the Algonquin Hotel. See how the feline models -- like Carmen Purr-anda here -- got in touch with their fashionable sides to…

Hi FURiends, I am back to tell you how happy I am being at the renovated Algonquin Hotel! We had a big reopening party with Penguin Publishing USA (I would love to meet a real penguin up close - wouldn't you?) and some very famous authors attended and posed by the Round Table. It was wonderful being petted by them and they certainly recognized my feline writing skills! RELATED: Reporting From The Algonquin Hotel After A 5-Month Vacation The summer months are now upon us the weather is getting quite warm in New York, so it's nice to be able to keep cool inside the hotel lobby.

Hello fans! When the Algonquin Hotel closed for renovations on January 1st, I went to live with some FURiends in Queens. It was some vacation!

I came nose to nose (through the glass door, of course) with a raccoon, watched squirrels begging for peanuts, and the birds on the feeder in the garden were better than any TV show. I also saw something you never want to see, folks: a wet opossum running around the deck in the rain. RELATED: Find Out More About Matilda You should have seen my face!

Hello. How do you do? Matilda the cat here, writing from my vacation chateau while my home, the famous Algonquin Hotel in New York City, is undergoing marvelous renovations. I am the tenth Algonquin cat, a spiritual descendant of the Algonquin's first feline mascot, Rusty. Rusty was a disheveled cat who appeared at the hotel in the 1930s in search of food and shelter.
