Vancouver is having its own first "Cat"-urday on August 5th at the Queen Elizabeth Park! It's hosted by a group called "First Caturday," and they're trying to bring awareness and care to cat owners everywhere.

By promoting a friendly, outdoor environment for feline friends, they create a safe place for your cat to experience the outdoors. A lot of cats do enjoy walks - whether it be on a leash, through a stroller or through a carrier. Familiarizing them with the outdoors also makes leaving the house a safer, happier process. 

This isn't Vancouver's first Caturday either! They hosted one in early June, and it was claw-some! They've also held events in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver, Boston, and Montreal, and they're only continuing to blow up!

The meet-up will take place specifically near the Cherry Blossoms (on Cambie and 33rd). It takes place from 1:30-4:30 PM, and it's open to all ages and cats! Even those who don't own felines are welcome to join. And as if you needed any more purr-suasion, it's absolutely free!
