The inaugural Edmonton International Cat Festival now officially comes to a close after we presented the Edmonton Humane Society with a cheque for nearly $9,000 earlier this week!

Profits from ticket sales and additional donations from #YEGCatFest attendees totalled $8,608.00! The money will go to help improve cat welfare and help the kitties at the Humane Society. A big, big, thank you to everyone who attended and supported this first-ever event. We’ll soon start planning next year’s event – which is guaranteed to be bigger and better than this one!
