A Festival for Cats is Returning to London this 2019

Love cats? This IS the festival for you!

A festival dedicated to cats? It sounds totally crazy…unless you’re a crazy cat lover. There is nothing that a feline lover wouldn’t do and this June 29, the ultimate cat appreciation will be held in London’s Beckenham Place Park.

Simply called CatFest 2019, the festival will have live music, lots of food and booze, and of course, lots and lots of cats.

All eyes on the kitties this June in London.

The park, which has a beautiful Palladian-style mansion in the grounds, will be filled with all things cat-related.

There will be cocktails, films, face painting, arts and crafts, vegan food and a whole lot more. What’s even better is that some famous cats in the internet will show their puuurrrty faces and paws at the event. The final list of the Insta-famous cats are not yet released, so cat lovers will have to wait for a while for this.

Maybe Cole and Marmalade will be there?

CatFest 2019 will feature “meet-greets with feline superstars and inspiring talks from renowned writers and animal experts. Plus [there will be] the Meow Parlour adoption lounge brought by our beneficiary charities ERHAM to help vulnerable Moroccan street cats and FRESHFIELDS ANIMAL RESCUE WALES to re-home unwanted and abandoned kittens.”

As if these are not wacky enough, the festival will also hold a “CatLit” section, in which attendees will hear modified versions of literary classics such as Homer’s Odyssey. Obviously, these will have a feline twist. Cat-cher in the Rye, anyone?

Crazy cat ladies galore!

CatFest has teamed up with Almo Nature, the pioneer of human-grade cat and dog food. It is the first-ever pet-food brand to be “owned by the animals”, which means that all profits generated by the sale of Almo Nature products are used to protect cats, dogs and wildlife biodiversity

The festival is not just for universal feline appreciation. This will be for a good cause. Proceeds will go to the Erham Rescue centre and Freshfields Animal Rescue, a charity organization. Tickets go for £22.15, which includes a booking fee. These will be available at the official CatFest website. There are cheaper tickets (at £15 a pop) but they are already sold out.

Vegetarians Are ‘Less Healthy’, ‘Require More Medical Treatment’ Than Meat Eaters

It might be healthier to regularly have meat in your diet.

There is little doubt that going vegetarian has its benefits. After all, the lifestyle makes use of the best of Earth's resources, reduces the risk of certain diseases, and for some, proves one's love for animals. However, a new study may have revealed that vegetarians are not as healthy as the regular meat-eaters. In fact, people who only eat vegetables are reportedly more likely to need more medical treatments.

The study was conducted by the Medical University of Graz in Austria and enlisted people with different diets. Interestingly, the researchers found that vegetarians were the least healthy subjects. The research discovered that low consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol due to higher fruit and vegetable intake carried a higher risk of cancer, allergies, and mental health problems.

Vegetarians are reportedly at risk of certain cancers and mental conditions.
