The debut is a part of the festival’s 75-minute screening, comprised of carefully curated cat videos that will entertain the expected 2,000 guests. Attendees can also dote upon adoptable cats and kittens in addition to socializing with the hosts of the CATastrophes Web Series, Alana and Kris who are both proud Chicago locals.
