PHOENIX — Want to spend the day admiring your favorite feline?

Then bring your furry friend to the Suncats Cat Convention, a two-day celebration of all things cats that is coming to downtown Phoenix on May 30-31.

Cat lovers will be immersed in themed pop culture, music, art and adoption opportunities, according to a press release.

“I want attendees to experience an unforgettable moment with cats so that advocacy becomes part of daily life,” Brandon Zavala, founder of Snowcats Productions, which puts on the convention, said in the release.

Cat costume contests, prizes and live music will also be featured during the two-day event.

There will be educational sessions led by nationally recognized veterinarians and animal advocates in addition to the more fun parts of the convention.

Attendees who want to adopt a cat or kitten will have a separate lounge to do so courtesy of Tempe-based La Gatarra Cat Lounge.

The convention will be held at Warehouse 215 near 3rd and Grant streets and be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The event was originally supposed to happen in February but was moved back to the May dates, according to a Facebook post.

A two-day pass costs $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under. A one-day pass costs $15 for adults and $5 for children.

Attendees who bring their cat will have to pay $10 to get in the door.
