After hearing about what a great time my human had at CatCon 2018, I’ve got a new goal: to be famous enough to be there next year! The only cats that get to go, other than the adoptable kitties, are the celebrity cats who do the Meet and Greets. And I will tell you something, compared to working at a cat show as a Pet Me Cat, those Meet and Greets are totally easy! People have to line up, and you’re not surrounded like what happens at the shows.
Anyhow, here is what my human saw during her second day at CatCon (you can find out what she saw on day one here):
Here was the entrance at the Pasadena Convention Center. It’s a really nice show hall in a nice part of Los Angeles.
There was a lot of cat furniture, none of it even remotely resembling what I see when I go to the big chain pet stores.
Some pieces were really unique, like this cat tower with several different types of platforms.
Some furniture was cool and classy, like Hauspanther’s.
Some booths were as crazy as Hauspanther’s was sleek.
The CatLadyBox booth had loads of fun items! Some of these started as overstock items from the monthly subscription box, and got so popular that the head human, Dorian, kept ordering more!
There were cat beds galore, like this one from Raison P’Être. They made their cat beds out of real, solid wood and durable fabric. They’re meant to last and fit into your decor, along with being comfy for kitties.
Then, there was this really fun taco shaped cat bed! On her way out of CatCon that day, she saw someone carrying one he had purchased.
Here’s another fun idea — cardboard boxes with fun designs and creative hole cutouts. The woman who designed these actually gave one to my human, and I’m looking forward to playing with it.
There were several exhibitors there who knew me in addition to Halo. One was Sleepypod (you may remember I went to their offices), and another was Arm the Animals. The guy at the table asked how I was doing, and my human was happy to tell him I was working as a therapy cat (I had just passed evaluation when I visited). He also let my human have a bandana for me.
By the end of the day, most of the good stuff had been sold at all the booths.
My human visited the restroom before heading back to her car… and saw a completely different sign from the one in yesterday’s stall. I wonder if each stall was different?
