Where do I buy tickets?
What do I get with my CatCon ticket?
Meet and Greets are not included in the price of general admission – why, you may ask? Because a portion of all proceeds from these opportunities go to various charities, including Lil BUB’s Big Fund, The Ian Somerhalder Foundation and Kitt Crusaders. Click here to buy your tickets!
Will there be cats at CatCon?
Yes! The 2018 CatCon Adoption Village is presented in partnership with sponsors 9Lives® Cat Food and World’s Best Cat Litter™. In addition, The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA will be back as our adoption partner for the second year in a row with even more adoptable kittens and cats of all ages!

Can I accompany my child to their Meet & Greet, or do I have to have my own ticket?
We understand that parents will want to stand in line with their children under 13 as they wait for their Meet & Greet. A parent may accompany their child without purchasing a ticket, as long as their child has a valid Meet & Greet ticket. Due to space and time limitations, we cannot accommodate adults who want to bring a friend to their Meet & Greet– all adults attending Meet & Greets must have their own ticket.
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 The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA will keep it for you until you’re ready to leave the event.
