Jackson Galaxy to Host Feline-Focused Festival in Early June
Jackson Galaxy’s Cat Camp, an annual feline-focused festival sponsored by the Petco Foundation, has unveiled the full line-up of events taking place June 1-2 in New York. The weekend festival will feature cat yoga, a cat café, cat toy crafts, adoptable cats and cat workshops, among others.
Jackson Galaxy, a cat behaviorist and star of Animal Planet’s “My Cat from Hell,” returns as head camp counselor, alongside Christina Ha, co-founder of Cat Camp. Ha is also the co-owner of New York City’s cat café, Meow Parlour, and president of its affiliated nonprofit rescue and adoption group, Meow Parlour Cats.
At last year’s festival, animal groups placed 75 cats into homes, and more than $10,000 was raised for the nonprofit groups involved.
New this year, general admission tickets will include access to the weekend’s talks and presentations. Details can be found here.
