Caturday in the Park

We think it was the 3rd of June.

Seattle’s more adventurous felines and their humans gathered in Cal Anderson Park in Capitol Hill Saturday afternoon for some petting, purring, and a little hissing. Dubbed the First Caturday, the event was organized (by cats, we are told) in order to reclaim a little green space for pets that have spent the last 8 months indoors, watching our record-setting rainy season from the windowsill, putting on a few pounds and being generally understimulated. Harnessed up for safety, the attendees basked in the sun, got to know one another, climbed a few trees, and enjoyed some live music from a guitar duo. Future Caturdays will take place the first Saturday of every month (when the sun is out, we are presuming). Interested cat owners who missed out are encouraged to start harness-training their pets now—and to follow the organizers’ Facebook for future announcement.
