Will there be cats at CatCon?
Can I bring my cat?
Feline family members will not be allowed into this event. We believe this is the best option for the safety of our beloved pets, and that most cats would prefer to stay at home rather than go to a very crowded, foreign venue anyway. For the safety of our guests as well as your pets, anyone who arrives at the convention with a cat will be turned away at the door. If you adopt a cat at CatCon, our adoption partner will keep it for you until you’re ready to leave the event.
