The City of Perth-sponsored festival attracted record numbers at its inaugural event last year and returns this year on January 16.

From 5pm to 8pm, the Northbridge Piazza will again play host to crowds of cat fans as they watch internationally curated clips, play locally made video games and the watch the Cat Haven’s live kitty cam.

Entry is free, with face painting available for a gold coin donation in support of the Shenton Park Cat Haven. Attendees can learn about cat care, adoption and pet kittens until 7pm.

Dress your best for a chance to strut the catwalk and win best dressed.
