Art For Cats’ Sake 2018

Published by:

The mission of Art for Cats Sake is to support the search for cures for feline diseases and to improve the Health and Welfare of Cats. Toward that purpose the call has gone out for all “Cat People”, especially “Crazy Cat People”  to assemble on Saturday, August 25th for the Covington Cat Art and Film Festival in the Fuhrmann Auditorium! This Purr-fect event will feature : 
Funny Cat Videos playing throughout the day including Jessica Spawn’s newest and of course an Henri favorite!
Fabulous Cat Artists will be on hand and there will be a gallery of art, sculpture and mixed media for everyone to browse and admire( some of it for sale! ) Both local and international artists will be represented. View the art while enjoying Cat themed cocktails, beer, wine, cat shaped cookies, chocolates, and more (a few vegan treats too!).
Noted Cat Mystery writer and certified feline behaviorist Dusty Rainbolt will be on hand to give two seminars and play Cat Trivial Purr-suit with attendees. There will also be veterinarians and veterinary nurses on hand to speak about special diets, CPR, TNR, and a wonderful lecture by Dr Amanda Perkins on ” Keep the Claws on the Paws and your Home Unshredded! ”  
So join us for knowledge, fun, and laughter and most exciting of all… come and consider giving a home to a  Fantastic cat or kitten sponsored by Catnip Foundation/BigSkye Ranch , St Tammany Parish Animal Shelter, and the La-SPCA.
And for goodness sake don’t forget to enter our funny cat videos and photo contests and maybe win a prize!
Rules , regulations and tickets are available at or check out our Art for Cats Sake Facebook page for further information.  Wear your best Cat Costume but leave your own cat at home as they don’t like the crowds!  Dog people bring their dogs to the dog park, cat people watch funny cat videos. See you there!
