According to creator Susan Michals. “CatCon from Your Couch will celebrate our collective love of animals, while giving back to our friends all over the world. This year’s event will feature more special content than ever before, and I hope will bring some normalcy and joy back into the lives of our cat-loving community. Plus, this is the first time ever that fans will be able to bring their own cats to Catcon, which is sure to be a purrfect addition.” For more information please visit https://www.catconworldwide.com/
We will certainly be attending both events and hope to bring you more information as we learn more. This may be a once in a lifetime oppurrtunity to attend a Cat Convention from home in your Cat Pj’s with a cute cat (or two or three, etc) in your lap! We wonder if there might even be viewing parties with other feline friends. What Fun!
