We completed the CatWise Cat Café Tour sponsored by Wellness Natural Pet Food and it was an amazing experience to have the opportunity to do a book tour at some of the most popular cat cafés around the country. We went from coast to coast, where I signed copies of my latest book, CatWise, met many wonderful cat lovers and had the chance to cuddle with some precious cats at the cafés. We even made an extra stop at Cat Adoption Team in Portland so I could do a lecture on shelter enrichment for cats.
Teaming up With Wellness
It was an honor to team up with Wellness for this first-of-its-kind tour. The most amazing part of all was that Wellness donated 1,000 meals for cats at each stop of the tour. The meals were donated to the shelters associated with each cat café, for a total of 8,000 meals in all. Thank you, Wellness, for your generosity and devotion to keeping cats healthy and happy as they wait for their forever homes.
The CatWise Cat Café Tour was a tremendous success and a wonderful chance to spotlight how cat cafés provide another avenue for adoption.
Cat cafés have been an international hit for a number of years and recently they have become very popular in America, with new cafes popping up in many cities.
CatWise Cat Cafe Tour Locations
We kicked off The CatWise Cat Café Tour kicked-off in March with a press conference at Global Pet Expo, the pet industry’s largest annual trade show. Our first cat café stop was at the Orlando Cat Café in Orlando, FL. We then hit New York to appear at Meow Parlour in NYC, Morgan’s Cat Café in Hudson Valley and the Brooklyn Cat Café in Brooklyn. The tour moved on to Philadelphia for a stop at the Kawaii Kitty Café. The west coast was next, where we did a book signing at Purringtons Cat Lounge in Portland and Seattle’s Meowtropolitan Cat Café. The cat cafés were all wonderful and if you have a chance to visit one in your city, don’t miss the opportunity.
Here are some pictures from the tour.
