CatCon 2018 was a smash success for kitty fans and Litter-Robot alike! Litter-Robot was “fur and away” the most popular booth at the event, drawing crowds of curious cat-adorned attendees for the first-ever “Paw for Poo” activity. Contestants were asked to don furry paws and dig around in a litter box for a piece of emoji poo, each corresponding to a different prize—including several grand prizes of a Litter-Robot Connect!
“Our new CatCon event, Paw for Poo, was an unforgettable experience,” says Jacob Zuppke, Executive Vice President at AutoPets. “We had lines of 30+ people waiting to play the game. Everyone was so excited to play, regardless of what they won. But that look on those grand prize winners’ faces was truly a sight to see!”
CatCon 2018 drew a record 16,400 attendees from 45 states and 11 countries. Among the high-profile talent this year was celebricat Lil BUB, actor Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries” and Netflix’s upcoming “V-Wars”), Georgia Hardstark (“My Favorite Murder” podcast), Moshow the Cat Rapper, Morris the 9Lives Cat, Cats of Instagram, Coby the Cat, Julia Butters (“American Housewife” and Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), and newcomers Merlin Ragdoll, Waverly McTinybeans, and Sir Thomas Trueheart.
The most popular lectures at CatCon 2018 included Cannabis and Cats: What You Need to Know Meow, The Furrocious Fashion Face Off, and Men and Cats, a Love Story, all of which drew standing room-only crowds.
Best of all, more than $40,000 was raised this year to benefit cats in need!
