Bigger and better than prior years, CatCon Worldwide rolled into Pasadena this weekend in purr-fect fashion. Adoring fans came from all over the country, and in some cases world, to hear seminars on feline health, cannabis as an alternative means of treating numerous cat issues like appetite and arthritis, and even a panel on men and the cats they love. 

Yes, there was even a cat fashion show for fans who wanted to dress their nine lives up and strut their stuff on the catwalk. 

In addition to all of this, CatCon Worldwide also boasted an even bigger and better convention floor this year that gathered artists, toy inventors, food and cat litter innovators, and a huge adoption center. 

A few surprises were in store for people this year, as well. Moshow the cat rapper put on a great performance right before the fashion show to get the crowd ready. Yes, he has a lot of fun and yes, his music is not just about his love for cats, kittens and all things feline. It has a message. Reminding the crowd of the pain and suffering cats endure due to declawing, he rapped his way up and down the stage with a message that was well received by all who were gathered.

Another surprise came on Sunday afternoon as a couple celebrated their nuptials in front of everyone. Having met the prior year at CatCon Worldwide, it was the purrfect ending in storybook fashion. 

Other seminars on hand this year dealt with trap, neuter and release for cats and the importance of no-kill shelters. Many of the health-related seminars kept people talking all weekend long as conversations dealing with household emergency kits and food rations for cats and pets were often heard in between seminars and shows. 

CatCon Worldwide continues to grow in its influence and thus importance. By including numerous seminars and staying current with the forefront of medicine and alternative means of feline healthcare, CatCon Worldwide has proved itself to be the most influential convention for cat lovers everywhere. 

Stay current with all things CatCon by taking a look at their blog, and make sure to paw your way over to Pasadena, California for next year's convention.
