We had incredible attendance last year and hope to see even more of the community take part this year!”

“The ‘Felines, Football and Fun’ cat show will be full of opportunities to meet a wide variety of beautiful cats, shop pet-friendly vendors and even see Mayor Jerry Mouton pick out his favorite cats!” said Marlon Azada, Vice President of the Feline Paw Foundation. “We’ll also have several local animal shelters and rescue organizations represented, and the whole purpose of the show is to raise money to support their efforts.

This will be a great opportunity for parents and their kids to come learn and ask questions about various breeds.” he said. “The Feline Paw Foundation will be bringing a wide variety of cats specifically for our education booth so people will get to touch, feel and get to know them.”
