“After fostering over 500 cats and kittens, one can imagine I have lots of heartwarming stories about their rescue to share.” says Kitten Associates Founder, President and Award-Winning cat blogger of CoveredinCatHair.com, Robin A.F. Olson. “That’s why I’ll be heading up a roundtable storytelling session about some of our favorite rescues.”
Cat Camp is March 11-12 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street New York, NY 10011, from 11 AM to 7 PM each day. It will bring cat lovers together under one roof to celebrate all things cat and to discuss some of the most important and challenging problems facing cats today. Exhibitors will hail from around the country and there will be several adoption events and fairs taking place throughout the weekend.
There will also be special presentations including a keynote message by The Cat Daddy, Jackson Galaxy (My Cat from Hell and the Jackson Galaxy Foundation); Lil Bub (with a presentation by Bub and Mike Bridavsky); NYC Feral Cat Initiative; Kate Benjamin (Hauspanther); and other notable personalities.
“There are thousands of cat rescues, but few ever write such moving stories as featured on Robin’s blog. It’s a huge thrill for her to be included in such a group of cat-centric celebs.” says the group’s Vice President, Sam Moore. “This is a fun-filled event for any cat lover of any age.”

“This is a great opportunity to inspire and educate people to join our rescue community and I’m incredibly honored to take part.” Olson explains. “I’m also a bit nervous, but my goal is to focus on stories about cats like Fred, who was the Mascot of our Kitties for Kids program, which helped local kids find their smiles after the tragedy here in Newtown; and about Chester, the 21-year old cat I located at the very last minute, after he’d been missing for nearly a week. I warn attendees to have tissues available when they hear some of these stories, but only to dry happy-tears.”
