We can’t wait to celebrate our collective love of cats with you! There is so much to do, see and experience at Meow MeetUp Chicago – the largest cat convention in the Midwest! Last year we raised over $10,000 for shelter animals and donated over 16,000 cans of food to homeless cats. Attendees achieved a state of purrvana with so much cuteness under one roof. Some of the non-profits that benefitted were Almost Home Foundation, Lil Bub’s Big Fund through the ASPCA, Save A Pet, The Anti-Cruelty Society, and Windy Kitty Cat Café in partnership with Chicago Animal Care and Control.

Plan to spend the day or weekend with us as we celebrate cats. Enjoy a catpuccino in the cat café, take a break with a kitty yoga class or shop! On Caturday night, we’ll continue the purrty at the Meow Mixer After Party. And don’t forget to sign up for Kitty Bingo on Sunday! There’s tons of kitty fun in store for you – so save the date and join us on July 20-21 at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Chicago!
