A cat party? Are you fur-real?
We’re not kitten’ around! Grab your friends and get ready for some feline fun at Meowmania for the third annual cat bash and animal rescue fundraiser on Saturday, July 20 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Cat lovers can enjoy their day frisking about, eating vegan bites, drinking delicious cat-themed cocktails and a chance to win a prize for you and your feline friend. Cat attendance isn’t mandatory unless your cat is a furry extrovert.
Why a cat party?
Meowmania organizer and Bushwick Street Cats volunteer, Chris Glazier says “Meowmania grew out of that DIY spirit. We’re always saying how much fun cat rescue people are. We thought a party would be a great way for all of us to get together, as well as people who just love cats.”
What’s the inspiration behind Meowmania?
“All of us got into cat rescue because we saw the problems of cat overpopulation in our community and decided to do something about it. We hope we can raise awareness of the issues, raise a little money and have some fun. And maybe we’ll get a few people to say I’m going to do something to help the cats on my block,” says Glazier.
Meowmania will benefit Whiskers-A-GoGo, North Brooklyn Cats, and Bushwick Street Cats with 100 percent of its ticket sales. These all-volunteer cat rescue groups have found them good homes for hundreds of cats removed from death row. Also, they re-home feral cats, trap-neuter-return neighborhood colony cats, and run low or no-cost spay and neuter clinics for local pet owners. Cats and kittens looking for permanent homes will be available for adoption.
