The Catsbury Park Cat Convention is back for its second year… and this time, it’s bigger and better!

On April 13 and 14 in Asbury Park, NJ, the Catsbury Park Cat Convention (CPCC) is returning for another fun-filled year! This unconventional convention will feature feline celebrities, celebrated humans, and impactful organizations. Headliners are to include “Kitten Lady” Hannah Shaw, an award-winning animal advocate, humane educator and professional kitten rescuer. On Sunday, Lil Bub will take the stage to host his celebrated talk show Lil Bub’s Big SHOW featuring some very special surprise guests. Besides being a talk show host, this famous feline is a published author, the star of an award-winning documentary, creator of Lil BUB’s BIG Fund for the ASPCA, (the first national fund for special needs pets), and has helped raise over $600,000 for animals in need. He’s also one of many celebrity kitties to star on the cover of Feline Wellness!

CPCC also promises plenty of games, activities, art displays, vendors, presentations and seminars, comedians, tasty vegetarian food, and adoptable cats! The goal of the event is to find forever homes for these lovely felines, and educate attendants on topics such as rescue, kitten care, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), and more.
