What’s the purrr-fect way to proclaim your love of all things feline? By joining other cat lovers for a tribute to our whiskered friends of all shapes and sizes.

Laugh up a hairball or two with NightLife’s very own cat video festival, featuring the internet’s funniest feline antics and presented by SF Sketchfest.

Meet the Cat Man of West Oakland (aka Adam Myatt), as he talks about his work with Oakland’s feral cat population he photographed for years before helping open the Cat Town Cafe & Adoption Center, the first of its kind in the country.

Looking for a cat companion? Visit the SF SPCA Kitten corral in the East Garden to peak at some cute kittens available for adoption and learn more about SF SPCA's efforts to find homes for every stray.

Like your cats a little wilder? Behold the majesty of ocelots and servals when Classroom Safari brings their very special feline guests.

Elsewhere, NightLife illustrator Nigel Sussman will take your drawing “party animal” requests—cats encouraged, of course.

Music By: R&B ONLY's Resident DJ, DJ Printz (COLORS)
