"From cat eye glasses and leopard prints to kitten heels and cat-faced flats, feline-inspired fashions have infiltrated runways for many years," said Cassidy. "Typically, cat owners aren't described by their style, but that's about to change with the launch of Fresh Step's Hot to Adopt campaign where felines and fashion are coming together to support cat adoption."

The event is free but RSVP is required.  Email:
