The Algonquin Hotel has had cat supervisors since the early 1930s. It’s been tradition for over half a century.  There’s also a tradition in what they have named the cat supervisors over the years. All male cats were named Hamlet, and all the female cat were named Matilda.

The hotel does already have a replacement ready to take over.

His name is Hamlet, of course. And he is a rescue cat.

“During his tenure at Bideawee, little Hammy was quite the social butterfly, cozying up to anyone in his vicinity, making himself at home on your lap, keyboard, phone, shoulders or anywhere else he fancied. We know he will excel at his new gig,” the rescue said.
