It’s about time! On April 27, Washington, DC is going to the cats. MeowDC, the city’s first cat convention, is designed for everyone from the devoted cat lover to the fly-by feline fan. Featuring talks about everything from community cats to cat behavior, adorable cats and kittens looking for their forever home, and lots and lots of cat-themed shopping, there’s something for everyone at MeowDC. All proceeds will benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance. Each month, HRA helps nearly 400 local homeless animals get adopted and 565 animals get spayed or neutered.

And don’t forget to enter our giveaway to win natural remedies from BestLife4Pets!

The interaction between the two cats in today’s video is something that could have happened between Allegra and Ruby. The look on the cat’s face on the bottom rung is priceless!

Have a great weekend!

3 Comments on Mews and Nips: Washington, DC Gets Its First Cat Convention

  1. I hope to attend a cat convention some day, but so far all of them have been too far away, or I didn’t get enough lead time to set up travel. So, please keep reporting on them; one is bound to work for me someday!

  2. The cat convention sounds like so much fun. I sure hope one day it will travel to all the major cities in the country. I know I would love to attend one.

  3. I love it and Ms King, I find your website invigorating and Ruby an Allegra are awesome girls. But off the record can I ask you a question from one cat person to another cat person? You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to! If you purchased a cat online and lost your deposit and got no cat, what would you do?
