This is not a drill, cat lovers – for two days next month, Los Angeles will be host to CatConLA, and everyone not in the area is totally jealous, because LA gets all the cool stuff.
On June 6th and 7th, CatCon will feature cat art, cat furniture, cat toys, cat jewelry, cat books, cat bed sheets…just to name a few things. And there are far more than a few things.
Here’s a few major highlights:
- A massive cat adoption village!
- Celebrity speakers, including Lil Bub‘s dad Mike Bridavsky, and Simon Tofield, creator of Simon’s Cat!
- Manicurists to make your claws all fancy!
- Panels with some of the world’s top cat experts!
There’s also talk of Purpose Cat Litter doing a top secret thing with the bathrooms there, and personally, I’m rather intrigued.
Dubbed “ComicCon for cat lovers”, CatConLA is both a huge gathering for it’s target audience, and a chance for people on the outside to get some huge insight into a world they might not know a lot about. As a ComicCon fan myself, I can totally relate – and thousands of people totally nerding out over cats? With tons of cats? Color me jealous!
“More than anything, CatConLA is a celebration of our feline friends — how they enhance our lives and make us happy in so many ways,” said Susan Michals, CatConLA organizer. “Everyone is here for one sole reason. Cats!”
If this proves to be a success, maybe they’ll bring a CatCon over to the east coast…Toronto, maybe? We would only be so lucky.
