Inside the festival, there will be several rescue booths that will have cats and kittens available so you can get a new fluffy member to your family!
Make sure to buy your tickets in advance, to save money. Tickets to the festival are $15 in advance when purchased online or $20 at the door. All the proceeds from the festival go towards local cat charities so you can feel good knowing your money is going towards a great cause. Since the festival has started, it has raised $81,000 to help cats in need!

To take part you need to submit four photos of your cat in the following categories: formal, swimsuit, every day, and a picture of your cat with a note on how they would make the world a better place. If you win, you'll not only get bragging rights, but you'll get a cat-themed prize package too!
