The Midwest is purring with the announcement of Meow MeetUp Chicago, the area’s first and largest cat convention for cat lovers. Meow MeetUp is hosted by The Catnip Times. The convention will take place Saturday July 21 and Sunday 22 at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
Something for every cat lover
Attendees can immerse themselves in everything “cat.” From Kitty Yoga sessions to clicker training, a cat café and cat video festival – there’s something for every cat lover of every age. Educational offerings include speakers from the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Feline Practitioners and many others.
While you won’t be able to bring your own cat (and let’s face it, most cats would not want to be at an event like this anyway!), there will be plenty of adoptable cats at the event. These cats will be mingling with their adoring public in the Kitty Yoga Studio, Cat Café, Clicker Training Sessions, and Cat Agility Contests. Be sure to stop by the adoption lounge where the cats and kittens will be conducting interviews to find their forever homes.

General admission tickets include all of the talks and the keynote addresses on Saturday and Sunday. Attendees can go to “Ask the vet” sessions, watch clicker training demonstrations, attend the cat video festival, stop by the pampurr pawlor, and meet and greet internet-famous celebrity cats. A few of the events need to be reserved well in advance of the event and charge a small fee for the experience, including the Kitty Yoga Studio, the Cat Café, the Meow Mixer After Pawty and Sunday’s Meowmosa Brunch and Kitty Bingo.
A portion of the proceeds goes to animal rescue groups
The Catnip Times and Meow MeetUp are working with a number of local rescue groups. Any rescue can participate and rescues will receive funds for their organization when people purchase tickets with their rescue code. Additionally, the event is donating space and resources to Almost Home Foundation in order to adopt out 100 cats and kittens during the weekend.
