CatConLA: A Visual Guide

All the cat things in one place -- CatConLA brought cat people together with great cat gear, cat people and adorable, adoptable cats.

All the cat things in one place -- CatConLA brought cat people together with great cat gear, cat people and adorable, adoptable cats.

Did you get to experience the incredible, inaugural CatConLA, held earlier this month? It brought cats like Lil BUB and Pudge together with cat writers like Francesco Marciuliano (“I Could Pee On This and Other Poems by Cats”) and Angie Bailey (“Texts From Mittens”) and cat video creators and curators like Will Braden (“Henri le Chat Noir”) and Scott Stulen (The Internet Cat Video Festival) as well as cat photo-sharing supporters like Mayim Bialik (Petsmart Charities) and Ben Huh (Cheezburger.com) along with real live adoptable cats.

If not, don’t worry!

First, the amazing spectacle of vendors, panels and celebrity meet-and-greets — all focused on cats! — will return in the summer of 2016. We will keep you posted on the details as we learn them.

Second, we shot tons of photos to share. Here you’ll see all of the above plus a few of the cats from Best Friends Animal Society available for adoption (74 of which found homes over the weekend!) and a couple of stellar outfits from but a few of the 10,000 people in attendance.

We can’t wait until it happens again. Will you go in 2016?
