I will say this loud and proud. Yes, I am a bonafide proud cat lady. Ever since I was a little girl, cats have been a part of my life. My first fur baby was named Kitty and he was a beautiful Siamese. Today, I’m a proud cat mom to Kiki (14), Stinker (8), and Snow (1)—all rescues. I know you have a stereotypical image in your head of what cat people look and act like. But, just go ahead and scratch that from your brain right now. Cat parents come in all shapes, sizes, colors, backgrounds, and lifestyles. If you’re a cat lover and you live in the Los Angeles area, you’re not going to want to miss the 2nd annual CatConLA ®!

CatConLA ® , the convention and symposium that brings the internet obsession with all things feline to life over one cattastic weekend is returning to The Reef in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26 with new talent, events and activations. This year the company will again donate $1 of every ticket sold to FixNation as well as donating additional funds to Lil BUB’s Big Fund at ASPCA and Kitten Rescue.
Here are five solid and pretty damn good reasons you should attend CatConLA ® this weekend. Buy tickets here.
#1 The Lineup is Super Cat Cool
This is a convention unlike any other. The lineup is fun and yes…super cat cool. I just made that up. But, it is! Actress Mariel Hemingway joins producer and author Lisa Erspamer in the seminar, How I Met My Cat, plus surprise guests. Even Julie Newmar, the original Catwoman, will host a Meet and Greet in the CatCon Muse Lounge signing books and photos. Also, Lil BUB and her dude Mike Bridavsky will be on hand for CatConLA’s finale event, Lil BUB’s BIG Show with surprise guests!
#2 Adopt! Adopt! Adopt!
Get your cat adoption on at The Clowder Lounge! Hill’s ® Science Diet ® and Petco ® have built a 3,000 square foot adoption village, exclusively at CatConLA ® . This space will house over 100 cats and kittens for adoption, all through local shelter organization, spcaLA.
#3 Kat Von D Beauty Bar
Visit the Kat Von D Beauty Bar! The pop up space will offer free eyeliner applications to CatConLA ® attendees, plus Kat Von D’s studded kiss lipsticks named after her two cats, Piaf and Poe, will be for sale with all net sales proceeds going to CatCon’s charity beneficiary for 2016, FixNation.
#4 Lots of Cat Stuff!
I’m pretty sure you’ll find everything and anything your cat heart desires. CatConLA ® showcases the world’s top catcentric merchandise for cats and their people. I want one of everything please.
#5 People Who Love Cats are Awesome
This is a true fact. Just saying. And to prove it, there will be a Furrocious Fashion Face Off Contest: CatConLA’s inaugural fashion event, presented by Zappos is hosted by Sonja Reid (@OMGitsfirefoxx) and judged by Angie Bailey (Texts from Mittens), Sonya Esman (@classisinternal) and P’Trique (@itsptrique). Ten contestants, all pre-vetted on social prior to CatConLA ® (humans only) will showcase their best cosplay catspirational attire and one winner will receive $1,000 gift certificate to Zappos.
