In our new reality restricting large gatherings, we’re reimagining CatCon as a virtual event this fall. Introducing: CatCon From Your Couch! We want to let you know that although CatCon 2020 is taking place online, we will continue our mission to spread joy and goodness to cats and the people who love them. We know many shelters and advocacy groups are struggling right now, and we plan to provide ways for you to donate. A portion of proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales will go to our charities of record. We’re working hard behind the scenes to create the fun, informational, MEOW-velous content you’ve come to expect from CatCon through the years. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
