10,000 Strong: Cat Community In Full Force at Second Annual Cat Video Festival
By: Grace Suriel
Ten years ago, if you had asked me what the average “cat lady” was like, I would have responded with some typical and snarky comment about seclusion and frumpy sweaters. Today, I am more than happy to admit I was wrong.
In my time here at Animal Planet I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know our fans quite intimately through our many social media channels. I don’t always have the time or the resources to respond to every single tweet or Facebook post but still read through and pass along your passionate stories, your hilarious videos and your adorable photos.
Last night, the cat community was in full force at the Minnesota State Fair. More than 10,000 of you attended the Walker Arts Center’s second annual Cat Video Festival. I got a chance to meet and chat with many of you on all things cat. Throughout the evening we all laughed together at hilarious cat videos, unveiled an amazing butter sculpture, witnessed the monumental meeting of Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat and had an all around amazing time.
Thank you to everyone who came out to this incredible event. I believe I speak for all of Animal Planet when I say; we are your biggest fans.
