‘CatVideoFest 2019’ in Jeannette benefits animal rescues, art gallery
With their big eyes and big attitudes, cats and kittens demand attention.
And when they tumble, box the air, chase shadows only they can see, or fall asleep in one’s lap, it’s attention they deserve.
An annual national animal rescue project compiling each year’s best YouTube cat videos into 70 minutes of cuteness and laughs, the event is set for 2-6 p.m. July 27 at the 406 Clay Ave. gallery.
Two screenings are planned, along with basket raffles, music, refreshments, feline merchandise, and of course, cats. The nonprofit partners will attend to promote cat rescue and adoption.
General admission pre-ordered online is $8 for adults and $5 for kids under 12; at the door $10 for adults and $6 for kids under 12.
VIP tickets are available for $25 and include admission, a souvenir tote and button, and 10 basket raffle tickets; $50 Gold Tickets include all of the above plus a cat-themed print signed by the artist Dan Overdorff. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
