Just for Cats: Internet Cat Video Festival comes to Canada

Adorable cats like Josephine will be featured at Just for Cats Every week, I'm a bona fide Cat Saturday (a.k.a. Caturday) reveller. I scroll through the many Twitpics on my timeline and videos and images posted to The Chive. (Feline photos are the sole use for this website and app, for the record. I loathe its objection of women and general retardation.) Don't get me started on how happy a YouTube cat video can make me. So it's no surprise I have April 17 marked on my calendar. That's the day the Just for Cats: Internet Cat Video Festival comes to Toronto. Held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the screening will feature—you guessed it—clips of favourite felines from across the World Wide Web, including the ever-so-popular Lil Bub (as seen, below). [HTML1] Hosting the event, which started in Minnesota last year, is Prime Minister Stephen Harper's wife, Laureen. A cat lover in her own right, Mrs. Harper is a Humane Society volunteer and foster mom to four felines. The Humane Society will also host an adopt-a-thon in conjunction with the film festival, which is also slated to tour across Canada, visiting Saskatoon (June 15), Guelph (June 19), and Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver at dates yet to be determined.
