On Saturday, February 27th the Southampton Inn hosted the Southampton Animal Shelter for a Cat Adopt-a-thon, in conjunction with a book signing with self proclaimed “crazy cat lady,” Allia Zobel Nolan. There were about 10 cats up for adoption – ranging from 1 – 8 years old – all in need of loving homes.
Inn guests, along with cat lovers and book worms from the public, stopped by between 1pm and 4pm in the Southampton Inn’s Bridgehampton meeting room. Author Allia Zobel Nolan was set up with all of her cat themed titles to sign and sell. Zobel Nolan is an internationally-published, award-winning author of over 200 children and adult titles. Her newest books include Cat Confessions: A Kitty Come Clean Tell All Book, Purr More, Hiss Less: Heavenly Lessons I Learned from My Cat, and Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much.
A reading reception with complimentary wine and cheese was a nice touch to conclude the day at 4pm in the Inn’s newly renovated library. Zobel Nolan read from her books and latest blog posts. She and her husband shared stories about the years of being cat owners and of being married to a cat lover. Guests laughed and also shared their own anecdotes about what it means to be crazy cat people.
It was a unique February afternoon by the fireplace in the library – the kind of event that provides the “purrfect” solution to Cabin Fever! The Inn is constantly updating its website with all the local happenings and fun opportunities like this one. Visit www.southamptoninn.com or call a knowledgeable agent at 631-283-6500.
