Jackson Galaxy's Cat Camp Review

It was like I blinked and Jackson Galaxy's Cat Camp had gone by in a New York minute.

Cat Camp took place May 5-6 at Penn Plaza Pavilion (in New York City, if that wasn't obvious from the pun in the first sentence).

Cat Camp is an event for cat rescue advocates to gather, learn by attending informational sessions and panels, meet & greet cat celebrities and shop all things cat.

A whole room was dedicated for adoptable cats.

Cat Camp also had cats up for adoption from local NY rescues. Many of the cats that were available were seniors or special needs.

The vendor selection was supurrrb. One of my favorite booths was Oh My Cat. I picked up one of her eyemasks, such sweet patterns! It's very soft and comfortable to wear to sleep.

Stray Cat Social Club's debut at Cat Camp.
Stray Cat Social Club gave a sneak preview of their products, which were super cute.  Trap-neuter-return (TNR) and feral care are their main focuses. They will be available in summer 2018 (so paws crossed that is soon!).

It is always nice to be among like-minded people and see fellow cat lovers who you have met at past cat related events.

My Cat Camp haul! Jackson Galaxy cat nerd sweatshirt, magazines, a book, eyemask, and earrings from The Purrfect Accessory.

I heard that Cat Camp was bigger this year than last year, so hopefully 2019 will be bigger and better! It was fun to get to visit New York City and see all of the sights.

Were you at Cat Camp? Will you go next year?
