The Save a Kitten at OakCatVidFest 

When: Sat., May 10, 3-10 p.m. 2014
Price: $5-$10, free for children under the age of 3
Home to the second-largest Internet cat video festival in the world and a (soon-to-open) cat cafe, Oakland is becoming a go-to place for cat lovers. Last year, 6,000 people came out for the city’s first cat video festival, which screened the Internet’s best cat videos, as selected by curators from the Walker Center for the Arts in Minneapolis. This Saturday, the festival will return to the Great Wall of Oakland (West Grand Ave. and Broadway) with about forty new cat videos, plus a visit from beloved perma-kitten Lil Bub, who will be available for “meet and greets” (tickets are limited). Before the video screening, there will be performances by local bands, an aerial cat-themed dance, and cat-related arts and crafts activities. In addition to appealing to the cat-crazed masses, organizers also hope to bring awareness to the growing need for kitten foster parents. Local shelters will be on site with kittens and cats up for adoption, and all event proceeds (after costs) will benefit the East Bay SPCA.
