(Picture: Metro.co.uk) Ready your paws and get ready to order your tickets right meow: CatFest is coming to town. This June CatFest, a full-on festival entirely dedicated to cats, is arriving in London. We’re very excited to be the event’s media partner, supporting all the cat-themed fun going down on the day. What exactly goes down at a cat festival, you may ask? Well, quite a bit. This year’s proceedings will have more than 50 exhibitors, feature films, live music, books, art, and cocktails – all cat-themed, obviously. There’ll also be meet and greets on offer with celeb cats including street cat Bob and feline model Starina. Oh, and vegan street food. That doesn’t seem especially cat-themed but it will be tasty. The event is welcome to cat owners and cat lovers (but not your cats. Imagine the havoc), and people keen to welcome a kitty into their lives can head along to see adoptable rescue kittens at the Meow Parlour, for a £5 donation at the door. One of the rescue kittens who will be at the festival (Picture: CatFest) Attendees will be able to shop for treats and accessories for their kitties, get expert advice on all things cat, and pick up art to turn their home into a feline-themed palace. The fun will be running all day and well into the evening, starting at 10.30am on Saturday 29 June and finishing at 10.30pm. We’d recommend eating plenty of street food to keep you going for the entire event. [metro-zone-post-strip] If you fancy coming along, you can buy a ticket through Eventbrite. Move quickly, though. If there’s anything we’ve learned from being on the internet for all these years it’s that people really love cats, so we expect tickets to go fast. Part of the proceeds will go to Erham Rescue, a charity that works to sterilise and improve the lives of vulnerable Moroccan street cats and kittens, and Freshfields Animal Rescue Wales, so you can know you’re doing some good as well as enjoying a splendid day out.
