Well…today was the Big Day! The Somerville Copy Cat Festival pulled off two shows with nary a hitch.
Well…except for the weather. It was snowing pretty good this morning.
Actually, it was snowing really good this morning.
Jacoby, however, was awesome! I am so proud of him. It was a really long day – we were there from noon til almost 8pm! But it was a lot of fun.
To start things off, Jef Czekaj read his book “Cat Secrets.”
Jake watched over his book sales table while he was up on stage.
We got to meet another famous local cat, too – Famous Seamus!
Seamus is a huge cat. He has extra toes on all his feet, too.
I was amazed at how well he and Jake got along. Granted, we didn’t let them get too close to each other, but still.
The main part of the festival, of course, was the cat videos. They were shown in two parts, local videos and then international ones (including Henri le Chat Noir and Maru).
Jake actually watched the videos quite intently.
(This is the video he’s watching in the photo…)
It was super cute.
There was also a slideshow of local cats…and I was amazed to see a photo of Sierra Stinkface! The cat world is small, indeed. It was a really great day. I met some awesome people (including Case and Emily from Ferocious Friends, some of the most awesome wand toys I’ve seen in a while) and had some amazing conversations today.
