If being around hundreds of cats and their kitty-obsessed parents sounds like a dream come true, head on over to CatConLA for two days of purrfection.

Cat moms and dads rejoice! This year’s CatConLA will be held on June 25 and 26 at 1933 S. Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, and will feature a slew of cool activities and vendors sure to make you meow!

Last year, over 1,000 cat lovers attended the first CatCon. The convention attracted over 100 vendors who enticed cat lovers with everything from robotic cat toys to extra-strong cat nip (not for the faint of heart!) There were even public speakers to help you take extra-adorable photographs of your frisky kitty called “Photographing Cats – It Looks Easy, But It’s Not” (something every cat mom can attest to).

This year’s CatCon will also have over 100 vendors such as Catit, Catmade and Two Crazy Cat Ladies who will feature products from all over the country to keep you and your kitty happy, healthy and forever entertained with nifty toys.

There are three types of tickets for this year’s convention: Meet & Greets ($100), Single day ($25 adult, $15 child) and Weekend passes ($40 adult, $25 child). Meet & Greet tickets include general admission for the day of the meet and greet. For example, Nala and Coffee Cat tickets include general admission for Sunday, June 26, and the Meet & Greet will be between 1:00-3:00 pm. Meet & Greet tickets for Lil Bub on Sunday have already sold out despite being $150 each!

Feel like catching a movie? You’ve got to get to the CatVideoFest (does not include entrance to CatConLA). If you’re looking to laugh at some hilariously adorable cat videos, be sure to purchase a ticket for $20, sold through The Theater Ace Hotel in downtown L.A.

If you need extra incentive, $1 of every CatConLA ticket sold will go to support FixNation charity, and all proceeds from the Meet & Greet tickets go towards Lil Bub’s Big Fund and other cat welfare charities. The SPCALA will also be filling the Clowder Adoption Lounge with adorable, adoptable kitties of all sizes and ages. Last year, 73 cats from the Best Friends Animal Society successfully found homes during the event. Hopefully, many more will be able to find their forever homes because of this year’s CatCon!

Head on over to CatConLA to purchase your ticket today.
