The Insanity of Health Regulations…………

Matilda Algonquin

Once again I am speechless at the hypocrisy and stupidity of humans.

The Times  reports that since the 1970s, the winner of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has been given a celebratory dinner at the venerable Sardi’s restaurant in Manhattan.   Soon this will no longer be possible owing to increasingly strict health regulations.

I agree that this might be reasonable as one cannot be too careful where canine hygiene habits are concerned.

However, it seems that the healthnuts are determined to extend their reach and Matilda, a cat who lives at the famed Algonquin Hotel,  has been banned from the kitchen, lobby and dining room.

This is just ridiculous.   I think it is high time establishments serving food started checking on the general cleanliness of their human patrons.      I wash thoroughly behind my ears and between my toes every day and I’ll bet Matilda does too.

How many human guests at Sardis and the Algonquin could truthfully claim to do the same?

  1. How is that Hotel suppose to keep the rodents out of the kitchen without the help of the cat? I can see keeping dogs out, they are not very clean. But cats keep themselves cleaner than many people.
