People from around the country flock
to the City of Angels for CatCon (cat
conworldwide.com), the cat-centric
event that celebrates everything feline.
This year, it takes place in August
(see page 6). It has been described as
Comic-Con for cat people and a great
place to dress up and exhibit your
Pussy and Pooch, the upscale pet
boutique with branches in Beverly
Hills on Santa Monica Boulevard,
another on Main Street in downtown
LA and one in nearby Long Beach, has
a cat restaurant called the Pawbar
with a menu of delights to serve your
favorite feline. ( pussyandpooch.com)
The city is making a determined
effort to control the cat population in
part due to the free spay-and-neuter
clinics held around the city by the Lucy
Pet Foundation ( lucypetfoundation.org).
According to Joey Herrick, the foundation’s founder, his goal is to ultimately
have spay/neuter and adoption mobile
clinics in every major city in the country
and make America a no-kill nation.
