It’s no secret that Vancouver loves cats (I mean, we have our own Cat Cafe!), so it should come as no surprise that we also have an outdoor cat meetup the first Saturday of each month in Queen Elizabeth Park.
Known as First Caturday, the event was created as “a day to reclaim the glory of the outdoors for our feline friends. It’s a day for delightful outdoor cat-napping and socializing.” It’s the purr-fect event for cat lovers and those with cats that want to spend a little time lounging around outside with friends.
If you’re hoping to participate (or just be a spectator), the next official Caturday event in Vancouver is scheduled for Saturday, September 2, 2017.
Cats of all types are invited to attend the event, as long as they are on leash or harness (or in a contained carrier). The opportunity gives cats a chance to bond with other felines, spend time in some fresh air and experience a fun change of scenery.
If you don’t have a cat, or if your cat isn’t really a social butterfly, you’re also welcome to attend the event to spend some quality time with other cat lovers and their awesome cats.
First Caturday takes place across many cities in North America, including New York, Montreal, Colorado, Oregon, and Seattle.
Attendees for the event vary and you might even be lucky enough to see a few Vancouver cat celebrities (maybe local legends and adventure kitties Bolt Keel will make an appearance?!)
