The Coolest Event for Cat Peo­ple

Modern Cat - - The Scoop -

The Modern Cat team had the best time at CatCon, which, for the unini­ti­ated, is pretty much the coolest cat event ever. CatCon, which takes place an­nu­ally in Pasadena, CA, is def­i­nitely the place for cat peo­ple to con­nect with their tribe. We met our awe­some read­ers, checked out amaz­ing cat prod­ucts, hung out with our fave In­sta­gram cats, took in some great lec­tures, and vis­ited with adopt­able cats. It was in­cred­i­ble. If you missed out this time, we highly rec­om­mend you start plan­ning for next year.

Modern Cat’s CatCon High­lights

We had so much fun run­ning Modern Cat’s booth! Not only did we have some ter­rific sub­scrip­tion of­fers, Modern Cat pins, and an awe­some kitty prize pack up for grabs from P.L.A.Y Pet Life­style and You, we also had our su­per pop­u­lar Modern Cat photo booth and we gave out sam­ples of Fizzion’s Jack­son Gal­axy Stain and Odor Re­mover (a cat owner es­sen­tial!).

We also teamed up with the Ian Somer­halder Foun­da­tion to help an­i­mals in need, with $5 from ev­ery sub­scrip­tion sold at the show go­ing to their Res­cue Grant Pro­gram. They also had a booth at the show with cute t-shirts, but­tons, and other merch for sale and, to the de­light of his fans, Ian even stopped by for a Meet and Greet with all pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing the foun­da­tion.

We got to meet some awe­some In­sta­gram cats and their equally awe­some own­ers! Fa­mous fe­lines at the show in­cluded Lil Bub, Pudge, Waverly McTiny­beans, Sir Thomas True­heart, Flat Marten, and Mer­lin Rag­doll.

We love that 486 kit­ties found their for­ever homes thanks to CatCon. 159 of those adop­tions hap­pened right at the show! The ASPCA also had 180 fos­ter sign-ups thanks to CatCon at­ten­dees.

We dis­cov­ered lots of cool new cat-themed prod­ucts. From cute cat beds and toys to neon and health-check­ing lit­ters and even kitty tu­tus, there was some­thing for ev­ery cat and their per­son! To learn more about CatCon, head over to their site,
