Sandy Robins explains, "Matilda is America's celebricat. If you Google her name more than 100,000 results come up in .38 seconds! She is adopted and a wonderful spokes cat for the idea that adoption is the only option. She is also an icon in the leisure industry and helped pave the way for many hotels and resorts around the world to put out the welcome mat for pets. I have been involved with her fund-raising events for a number of years. People fly in from around the world to be present. I purrsonally never miss her furbulous annual party!"
