Cat naps return to famous New York hotel

NEW YORK (AP) - Matilda the cat is back at work at New York City's Algonquin Hotel.

The blue-eyed beauty was feeling the love as the hotel reopened Thursday after a five-month, $18 million renovation.

She may not love her new bling, though.

Thanks to a November issue with the Health Department, Matilda now wears a special collar that keeps her away from the hotel's food-related areas.

The literary lights of the Round Table used to exchange witty remarks over lunch at the Algonquin.

They were accustomed to the succession of cats that had free run around the hotel for 80 years.

After prowling within her parameters, the silky-coated hostess curled up behind the computer at the front desk.
