Cat Camp, the city's first feline-focused conference and adoption extravaganza, came to New York City in March 2017. Cat Camp took place at the Metropolitan Pavilion during the weekend of March 11 - March 12.

The symposium brought together cat lovers together under one roof to celebrate all things cats and to discuss some of the most important and challenging problems facing cats today. Exhibitors hailed from around world and we had many senior and special needs cats from 9 adoption groups thanks to the adoption event organized by KittyKind and supported by the Petco Foundation, Maddie's Fund and Mayor's Alliance. There were fun and engaging talks including our keynote message provided by The Cat Daddy, Jackson Galaxy (My Cat from Hell and the Jackson Galaxy Foundation); Lil Bub (with a presentation by Bub and Mike Bridavsky); Hannah Shaw (Kitten Lady); NYC Feral Cat Initiative; Kate Benjamin (Hauspanther); and other notable personalities. 

At Cat Camp, you can:

  • Learn more about cats! We will be hosting speakers and panelists sharing their knowledge on topics ranging from learning about how to care for community cats, save orphan kittens, and Catify your home.
  • Shop! We’ll have dozens of cat-focused vendors available to cater to your every cat desire.
  • Meet adoptable cats and maybe even find your newest family member!
