Midwest Cat-lovers Purr: Meow Meet-Up Chicago Comes To The Windy City
Cat conventions are popping up all over the world, from Los Angeles to New York and many places in between! Speaking of cat conventions in between LA and NY is Meow MeetUp Chicago! The conference promises to be the largest cat conference in the Midwest!
Founder, Lauren Mieli, started Meow MeetUp Chicago as an extension of her well-known blog, The Catnip Times.
“We’ve always tried to blend interesting and educational content with fun cat content, like crazy cat videos and memes. Meow MeetUp was the logical next step to bring cat lovers together to collectively celebrate their love of cats with other like-minded cat lovers! The event will mix serious topics affecting cats as well as lots of fun activities like cat yoga, a feline film festival, and so much more!” – Lauren Mieli, Founder, The Catnip Times & Meow MeetUp Chicago
