CatCon 2017, a two-day festival of all things feline, returned to Southern California on August 12-13.
Cat lovers took over the Pasadena Convention Center for a purrfect weekend fête.
And though you couldn't bring your own feline to the cat-themed event, there were plenty of rescues available for adoption. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which works to educate people and collaborates with other organizations in conservation and environmental projects around the globe.
Check out some of the convention's adorable felines from last year.
