All of you cat lovers out there have most likely heard of The Catnip Times! Similar to us here at Fluffy Kitty, our friends at The Catnip Times strive to help people make their cat’s life better and strengthen the bond between people and their beasts.
They are now launching a massive convention, the MeowMeetup Chicago, that will reflect this positive spirit in real life, enabling like minded people to gather and celebrate cats!
The Catnip Times
This pawpular cat blog founded in 2012, just 3 years before Fluffy Kitty, is on top of our list for best cat blogs! What we like most about The Catnip Times is its authenticity with a unique focus on education and fun. And that’s exactly why you should attend the Meow MeetUp event in Chicago.
They have put a great deal of effort to offer unique experiences for all cat lovers out there!
⏲️ Meow MeetUp: Save the Date & Book in Advance! ⏲️
It will be happening at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL (next to O’hare Airport) on Saturday (Caturday) and Sunday, July 21-22.
There will be a lot of people attending so we strongly suggest you get your tickets in advance so you won’t have to wait in long (hot) lines.
Use our code FLUFFYKITTY to get $5 off EACH general admission ticket!
Why You Should Go
First, because it is a unique opportunity to have fun with a bunch of people like you, surrounded by awesome cats 🙂
Then, because parts of the proceeds will go directly to all sorts of animal rescue groups.
Note that for this event, The Catnip Times is partnering with Almost Home Foundation, a foster-based organization where the cats don’t have very much visibility except for events like this.
Although you should not bring your own cat (all cats are not as well behaved as yours 😉 ) there will be plenty to enjoy during the event. If you are still wondering why you should go, just check out this pawesome program.
