Such a memorable experience participating in The Catnip Times' first Meow Meetup in Chicago! Held at the Donald Stevens Convention Center over the weekend of July 28-29 , people flocked from near and far, including Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri, California and Florida. I had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with many fantastic cat people, vendors, and the incredible Lauren Mieli (founder of The Catnip Times).
Folks of all ages were dressed in cat themed clothes, complete with "cattoos" and ears. Energetic kittens scampered about the cat adoption room, yoga studio and agility course. And who could resist the teeny tiny kittens from the Windy Kitty Cat Cafe and Lounge? One interesting tidbit - when I asked attendees how many cats they had, the average response was four. Definitely looking forward to next year's event!
