Our Community Now got the inside scoop on the cat-themed convention this past weekend.
The Snowcats Cat Convention took place last weekend, and it was a full two days of all things cat-related—including adoptions, live music, comedy, products, education, and more.
The event is the brainchild of Brandon Zavala, a cat lover and Instagram star (@cat_dadbod) who wanted a place where cat lovers can come together for the things that interest them most and, ultimately, to get cats in need of adoption into their forever homes. We even had the opportunity to sit down with Brandon and interview him!
OCN Interviews Brandon Zavala:
The event was BYOC (bring your own cat), so there was no shortage of adorable cats in costumes. Plus, the lineup of guests and performers was just as entertaining! At times, we found ourselves completely mesmerized—much like a cat when chasing a laser—at the live music or aerobatic acts being performed.
In addition to speaking with Brandon Zavala, we also had the opportunity to chat with a few of the artists and organizations, including Zoltan Kazas, a comedian; Lindsey Ganassa, the director of The Feline Fix; and Mosho, the cat rapper.
