FAQ

Frequently Asked CatCon Questions

When and where is CatCon®?
CatCon®, presented by Rachael Ray™ Nutrish®, will take place Saturday and Sunday, August 12 & 13, 2017, at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 East Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91101

Will there be cats at CatCon®?
Yes! Lil BUB, Nala, White Coffee Cat, and Oskar the Blind Cat will be on hand for Meet & Greet sessions, with more feline guests to be announced. The Furever Home Adoption Lounge, hosted by Rachael Ray™ Nutrish®, will have adorable, adoptable cats and kittens of all ages and sizes.

Can I bring my cat?
Feline family members will not be allowed into this event. We believe this is the best option for the safety of all beloved pets and that most cats would probably want to stay at home rather than go to a very crowded, foreign venue anyway.

Who is appearing at CatCon®?
A bunch of creative cat people! The full schedule will be available in 2017.

Will CatCon® benefit any animal welfare groups?
Yes! CatCon® has chosen the Ian Somerhalder Foundation as our official charity beneficiary for 2017. CatCon® will donate $2 of every ticket sold to ISF, as well as a portion of money raised by all Meet and Greets.

When can I buy tickets?
CatCon® tickets will go on sale May 2, 2017. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter, and follow us @CatConWorldwide on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to get the latest CatCon® news and info!
