CatCon 2018: Join Me for a Weekend Dedicated to All Things Cat


If you’re a cat lover, Pasadena, CA is the place to be on August 4 and 5! CatCon returns for its fourth year. Taking place at the Pasadena Convention Center, CatCon is the biggest cat-centric, pop culture event in the world dedicated to all things feline. To date, the two-day immersive experience has seen nearly 45,000 attendees and has been featured in over 500 outlets around the world, including The New York Times, BuzzFeed, Reuters, Vanity Fair, and Glamour.


I’m honored to be among a star-studded lineup of cat-loving celebrity talent and celebricats. I’ll be hosting a one hour “Ask the Cat Expert” Q&A session, date and time TBD.

This year’s line up includes Lil BUB and her dude Mike Bridavsky, New York Times bestselling author Gwen Cooper, and Trapking Sterling Davis, as well as numerous celebrity cats. Click here to see a full list of this year’s talent. “CatCon is all about bringing the latest and greatest to our fantastic pet loving audience,” said creator Susan Michals. “For 2018, we wanted to showcase some amazing emerging talent, in addition to some of our returning and established favorites.”

CatCon gives back

The CatCon Adoption Village, with Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA facilitating adoptions, will help adotable cats find forever homes. For the second year in a row, CatCon’s charity of record is the Ian Somerhalder Foundation. The convention will donate $2 of every general admission ticket sale to ISF; funds generated from Meet and Greets will also benefit ISF, as well as Lil BUB’s Big Fund, Milo’s Sanctuary, Kitt Crusaders, and Kitten Rescue.


CatCon offers plenty of opportunities to educate and inform in entertaining and outside the box ways with a series of seminars, interactive eventes and other activities.


Over 150 curated exhibitors will be selling fabulous feline products in the areas of design, art, fashion, accessories, toys, and more, for cats and their people.

    That is great that you are hosting a session! Have fun! I’ve gone the 3 times it’s been in this area but not sure I’ll make this one.

    I sure wish I could travel and go to CatCon. My town doesn’t have anything fun like this.
