Cat Stars Hit CatCon

Cat lovers from far and wide flocked to the Pasadena Convention Center on August 12th and 13th for a huge feline festival: CatCon. This two-day convention featured guest speakers, meet-and-greets, live performances, and, of course, a “Furever Home Adoption Lounge.”

Some big name stars headed out to Pasadena for the event. While only a very small number of cats were actually allowed into the event, their owners made sure that they still got the best experience possible. Cute cat Shrampton didn’t make it in, but a little cutout took his place.

Cutout Shrampton met cutout Ellen at the event. While it’s definitely not as good as the real thing, maybe it’s a good first step in getting these two to actually meet.

Cutout Shrampton also hung out with famous cat rapper MSHO. MSHO gave a live performance at the event that was definitely a big crowd-pleaser.

MSHO was also spotted with another famous cat, Oskar. The two actually got to meet in person after the convention ended.

While the convention was all about cats, it was definitely about cat lovers too. Here, we see some proud cat dads hanging out after the convention.

Overall, it was a great event with a great cause. Cat lovers got to join together to celebrate their feline friends. Plus, a bunch of adoptable kittens were able to find their furever homes.
