The first cat fest held in Halifax, Nova Scotia took place at the Natural History Museum on Saturday, 8 August 2015 and was reported to be a great success with cat lovers of all ages. I wish I could have been there to experience it, but I was otherwise occupied with work. It was international cat day on that Saturday which made the event very apropos. There were 17 organizations taking part in the event including vendors, exhibiters and charities. Education about cats was the focus of the event. People could learn about the catch-neuter-release program, and learn about the big cats of the wild. As well, displays of the stuffed big wild cats and small furry cats could be enjoyed. These displays are set up until 27 September. Let's hope that this becomes an annual event to entertain, educate and enable cat lovers.
