Adorable cats and kittens will be in search of forever families on Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. at a special cat adoption event in honor of the first “National Tabby Day.” The event, hosted by the Alliance for NYC’s Animals, Bideawee, and Triumph Books, will take place at Bideawee in Manhattan.
The event will also feature a book launch, sale and signing from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. by author Sandy Robins and photographer Paul Smulson in celebration of their new book, Making the Most of All Nine Lives: The Extraordinary Life of Buffy the Cat (Triumph Books), a series of adorable photographs and captions detailing the life of the famous feline Buffy. The book documents Buffy as he trades hairballs for golf balls, scratching posts for the Evening Post and meowing a yawn for mowing the lawn.
The book signing celebration will feature a complimentary feline-inspired mocktail and desserts. A cat bar will also be provided for our four-legged friends. A portion of book sales will benefit Bideawee. Anyone who adopts a cat or kitten from Bideawee that day will receive a signed copy of the book, a photo–op with their new furry family member taken by Paul Smulson, and a cat-owner starter kit provided by the event’s sponsors.
