What’s the purrr-fect way to proclaim your love of all things feline? By joining other cat lovers for a tribute to our whiskered friends of all shapes and sizes.
Music by R&B ONLY's Resident DJ, DJ Printz (COLORS)
→ Laugh up a hairball or two with NightLife’s very own cat video festival, featuring the internet’s funniest feline antics and presented by SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival.
→ You may just find your new family member when The San Francisco SPCA brings some of their adoptable kittens to meet. (No adoptions on-site, but there will be adoption applications to fill out in case you fall madly in love.)
→ Crazy about cats? Find out just how crazy when Dr. Sarah Ewald, assistant professor at the University of Virginia, discusses the surprising facts behind Toxoplasma gondii, aka the “cat lady” parasite.
→ Meet the Cat Man of West Oakland (aka Adam Myatt aka Hoodcats), as he talks about his work with Oakland’s feral cat population he photographed for years before helping open Cat Town Cafe & Adoption Center, the first of its kind in the country.
→ Like your cats a little wilder? Behold the majesty of ocelots and servals when Classroom Safari brings their very special feline guests.
→ Elsewhere, NightLife illustrator Nigel Sussman Illustration will take your drawing “party animal” requests—cats encouraged, of course.
