Yes, you read that correctly.. Josh and I are taking a trip down to Asbury Park, NJ for the 2nd Annual Catsbury Park Cat Convention! While we will only be attending the event on Sunday (due to there being a million things going on this weekend), the event starts on Friday night with some special musical performances, such as The Love Cats and Lil Bub: The Band, and runs until Sunday evening which concludes with a live taping of Lil Bub’s Big Show, freaturing Steve Albini, Kelley Deal, Fred Armisen, Blasko, and more.
What exactly is a CatCon you ask? Well, Catsbury Park is filled with all sorts of cat-tastic things: celebrity cats, games & activities, music, seminars, comedians, artists and other vendors.. and as if that wasn’t enough, there is also a spot to get tattooed as well as snack station with some tasty vegetarian treats. Some of the most exciting of all this is a chance to meet some of your favorite felines from the internet! Some of the cats I am super excited to meet include Lil Bub, Stache, Klaus, and Sir Thomas Trueheart. Last year when they came together for the first time, they had over 5,000 attendees from all over the country and raised more than $40,000 for cats in need that was spread throughout multiple local non-profits.
This will be my first time attending an event like this and I’m very excited and honored to have press access to help report back on all the awesomeness that goes on. I had a blast visiting a cat cafe when I was in San Fransisco so I can only imagine how epic this will be!
