Hold on to your hats east coast cat lovers! The biggest cat-related event ever to hit NYC will take place March 11 and 12! It’s Cat Camp, a two-day feline-focused conference and adoption extravaganza. The event will include speakers and panel discussions on topics related to our beloved cats, plus cat adoptions will be held throughout the weekend, including one focusing on senior and special needs cats. And of course, there will be shopping! Vendors from all over will be selling tons of cat-themed goodies for both you and your cats.
The Cat Daddy himself, Jackson Galaxy, will deliver the keynote address, plus he’ll be hosting two VIP receptions. The Kitten Lady, Hannah Shaw, will also be speaking, as well as yours truly, Kate Benjamin from Hauspanther. My talk will be on my favorite topic, “Feline Design: Creating a Home Your Cat Will Love Without Looking Like a Crazy Cat Lady.”
And if you’re looking for some celebri-cat action, Lil Bub and her person Mike Bridavsky will be holding a meet & greet and giving a presentation.
There are several other great speakers and panelists! Adam Myatt of Cat Town Oakland and Christina Ha of Meow Parlour NYC with be talking about cat cafes, moderated by Kerry Diamond, co-founder of Cherry Bombe. Dr. Jennifer Conrad of The Paw Project will highlight her work to make declawing illegal (we’re HUGE fans of Dr. Conrad and The Paw Project!) Ingrid King of The Conscious Cat, Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair and cat behavior consultant Beth Adelman will all be in the Cat Camp lounge offering advice and answering questions.
