This Saturday, June 28, is the Festival of Felines at the Cat Care Society in Lakewood. Come visit the cats, real and imagined.

From 11 AM to 2 PM, hang out at the Cat Care Society to see the 2014 Tails of the Painted Cat sculptures and vote for your favorite fantasy cat. Pet the real kitties at the shelter and visit The Cat Clinic or shop in the Meow Mart. Bring the kids for face painting and hourly giveaways. Guests can also enjoy cake, cat house punch, popcorn and Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs food truck will be there selling hot dogs, chips and soda. Sketch artist Alex Ferriera will available to draw a sketch of your kitty from a photo for a small fee. Fun for the whole family.

The Cat Care Society is located at 5787 W. 6th Avenue in Lakewood (6th Avenue & Sheridan). The fun starts at 11 AM. Cat sketches are $20 and can be purchased in advance by emailing a JPG photo of your cat to Suellen Scott at sscott @ catcaresociety.org. Pictures ordered in advance will be available for pick up at the event Saturday or just bring a cat photo that day to the shelter.
