Announcement: Meow MeetUp Suspended Over Coronavirus Outbreak
 
Hello cat lovers!!
 
Due to increasing concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, and to help protect the health and safety of the public, our sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and of course, the adoptable cats, Meow MeetUp is going to be suspended until more information is known about how coronavirus is going to evolve and how it will affect the people and animals of the United States.
 
The Catnip Times is currently exploring other options or potential dates later in the year. We’ll keep you posted as information develops.  
 
Thank you for understanding. Stay safe. Wash your hands. And cuddle with your kitties!
 
All the best,
Lauren Mieli
Founder, Meow MeetUp & The Catnip Times

There's a reason #Chausies are often referred to as the most Cougar looking of all cat breeds 😁. Although Draven is a new color line in the breed we still think he has that look!

Instagram post 17850626782496834 I made dis 🐾 myself. They’ll be in the Meet & Greet gift bags at meowmeetup this weekend! I hope to see you there!
🐾
General admission tickets + Meet & Greet tickets still available! Link in bio and stories.
🐾
WHERE: The Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.
🐾
WHEN: July 20-21. One Meet & Greet session each day.

There are so many cool vendors that are going to be at the Meetup. I’m in search for some silver vine sticks, some new wand toys for Dahlia and maybe a piece of cat artwork? Idk! If you’re going, what are you excited for?
🐾
We can’t wait to see you all at the Meetup! If you’re too far away to meet Mikita in person, we’ll be putting some pawtagraphs in the shop next week! Stay tuned!

Instagram post 17854957249472346 Meet & Greet at meowmeetup day 1! Mikita did great! He’s getting a little tired here. It’s his nap time. 😹We took him home, gave him a snack and are headed back to the Meetup so we can see all the vendors.
🐾
Thank you to everyone who came out to meet Mikita! We were so blown away by how awesome you all were. He was a bit nervous but a good little dude! Every single person approached Mikita with such care. He enjoyed all the scratchies. Thank you so much for purchasing a Meet and Greet ticket. We’re saving kittens from orphankittensnursery and kitten.nuggets with the profits and that’s pretty cool.
