To all the fellow cat lovers out there, this article is for you. Her is all the information you will need to become an expert on Cat Con. This is a major expo and symposium that takes place once a year for only two days, so if you adore cats and want to meet some of the people that have made them famous in all kinds of ways than this is the article for you.
Cat Con takes place in June on the 6th and 7th of this year to be exact. They feature some major acts like Simon Tofield, the YouTube phenomenon who makes “Simon’s Cat”, the little black and white paper like cartoon about a sweet little kitten that gets into mischief that causes his owner stress. Another act to look forward to is Mike Bridavsky and Lil’ Bub a recording engineer and his cute little kitty used in many memes online and known for his tongue that sticks out of his mouth. Many of the other speakers are cat experts and video creators as well as artists that bring cats into a whole new light.
Another fun part of this experience is you get to see all the cool cat FURniture that is created like the cat trees, funky beds, cat art, clothing, and all the new toys that are being created. This is a chance to get a first look at some fun new fashions for us humans to rep. for our feline friends. This convention gets you up to date on the latest cat news and lets you meet people that have become famous because they love cats and have made them their life in some way or another.
