The cat (videos) came back – to Ottawa!

Celebrate Just for Cats Month with a feline fix

OTTAWA - May 27, 2015 - Attention, cat enthusiasts! If you love cats and cat videos, you’ll want to mark your calendars for the city’s favourite cat-centric event.

"You’re invited to celebrate all things feline at the Just For Cats Festival,” says Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS).

The Just for Cats Festival just played to a sold out audience in Toronto at the TIFF Bell Lightbox earlier this year, with special guest deadmau5. Now the festival is coming to Ottawa!

The Just For Cats Festival is back with a meow on Saturday, June 13th at the Horticulture Building, Lansdowne Park in the Glebe from 10am-6pm. The Festival is hosted by CFHS, with all proceeds supporting both the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and the Ottawa Humane Society.

The festival features a cat-centric exhibitor hall, therapy cats, cat lectures, a cat-inspired dance performance, bouncy castles, face-painting and more! “We are ecstatic to bring back the exclusive reel of the best cat videos on the internet programmed by Will Braden creator of the Henri Le Chat Noir and created by the Walker Art Center!” says Ms. Cartwright.

June is Just for Cats month, so put on your cat ears and celebrate your love of cats with us!

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. There’s also a VIP experience for $25 where you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of wine, a cupcake, goody bag and more!

“The Just For Cats Festival supports a national initiative to increase the welfare of cats across the country and enhance the human cat bond,” says Ms. Cartwright.

Just for Cats is the only series of national festivals exclusively dedicated to cats and improving their welfare.
