Whether you’ve had cat companions all your life, or you’re looking to adopt a kitty for the first time, you’ll have a purr-fect time at the Melbourne Cat Lovers Show. Taking place over two days this winter, this festival will feature plenty of cats, accessories, behaviour and wellness tips, and more. The Melbourne Cat Lovers Show will take place at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday June 4 and Sunday June 5.
Melbourne Cat Lovers Show
Meet and interact with over 300 cats, from over 30 different breeds. There will be a PETstock Adoption Zone, with stalls from 40 rescue groups to help find fur-ever homes for their cats.
At the Pat-A-Cat zone, you’ll cuddle and snuggle some adorable felines. After that, check out the Purrfect Match Zone, and learn which breed is best for your lifestyle. At the Trouble & Trix Breed Showcase, you’ll engage with expert breeders, meet rare cats and learn about their different behaviours and medical needs.
Animal experts, such as Dr Chris Brown and Dr Katrina Warren, will present a series of talks on the PETstock stage. Jackson Galaxy, host of Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell”, will also present daily talks and Q&A sessions live from L.A.
Browse through the cat retail market and find everything from fancy food to custom collars. Adults can pamper themselves with a glass of bubbly from the Prosecco Bar. There will also be a cat-inspired menu in the Main Café, as well as a Feline Food Truck Park.
Keep things fun and get your nails done by Clara H Nails, who has done the nails of celebrities like Katy Perry. Meanwhile, there will be Kitty Face Painting for children, as well as a Glitter Selfie Wall.
