Calling all crazy cat lovers! Does the sound of purring bring joy to your life? Is petting a cat the best part of your day? Do you stop for cuddles every time you see a random cat on the street? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to check out this brand new event! Ottawa's Pop-Up Cat Lounge is happening this week and it's the most adorable thing ever.
The pop-up opens Thursday, Aug. 8 and runs until Aug. 10. The event is hosted by Moo Shu Ice Cream in support of the Avery Foundation, an Ottawa-based animal rescue shelter. Come out and support a great cause, and cuddle some kittens while you're at it!
Moo Shu will be selling their famous cat cones, and you can "catify" your scoops for only $1. They will also be matching each dollar donation.
Of course, no cat lounge is complete without cats, and there will be nearly a dozen felines at the event. Cuddle and play with 11 adoptable kittens in the interactive kitty playpens. You're going to want to take all these furry little babies home!
Meet the cat-supporting vendors like Feline Cafe, Meow That's Hot, and Plant & Curio who will teach you all about kitty-safe plants. You can also take part in some crafting fun, and make your furry friend a little gift at the DIY Cat-Nip Toy Station. Your kitty will love you! Don't forget to enter the 50/50 draw to support cats in need.
Admission to the lounge is by donation, and every dollar goes towards the non-profit Avery Foundation as they help homeless, abandoned, and stray cats in Ottawa. With an incredible cause and lots "claw-some" fun, this is one event you don't want to miss!
