A portion of the night was dedicated to a cat costume contest. Not cats in costumes, humans dresses as cats. Folks arrived, decked to the nines in their feline best. However, some attendees showed up unprepared, leaving them distraught and unable to participate in all the festivities. Luckily, there were an assortment of colorful cat masks for sale and wearing.
Dog people are constantly showing off their canines in the latest animal fashions. But, what about the cats? How come they're left without any sort of adorable wardrobe? Maybe your kitten wants to look cool too, huh, Etsy? Local dude Jonny Veo understands a cat's closet predicament and created Kitten Empire Couture. Our partner in crime almost considered purchasing this denim vest for one of his felines. Meow.3. Cat collage plates by Dibbie Jane

1. The kittens!
There were real, live, cute kittens available for adoption! It was a veritable feline fete on the Green Room patio. It would have been enhanced only if the upstairs area'd been closed off so that we could play with the kitties freely. Maybe next time.
