MINXX TURNS 97 in Human Years - The GREAT CATSBY Birthday
We proudly launched the Meow Mingle Cat Social series five years ago... wow time flies! We kicked it off with a special feline birthday celebration for Minxx, one of our founding four-legged P&P mascots. We created a festive cat Quinceanera to honor her 15 furry years which was decorated with plenty of colorful peacock feathers (her favorite) and featured a fresh-made liver birthday cake, fresh-made turkey meatballs, and swag and prizes for cats in attendance. This month Minxx is ROARING IN HER 20'S, so naturally we are proudly continuing the Meow Mingle tradition and celebrating her CAT BIRTHDAY with The GREAT CATSBY -- and all of you are invited!
Turning 20 is a pretty big deal for us humans, but, for pets even more so considering that the equivalent in human years is 97!! Do you know how to calculate a cat’s age? It’s often believed you calculate with a simple multiplication of 7, however cats mature much more rapidly within their first two years. Want to calculate your cat’s age in human years? Use this easy calc...
Minxx came into my life 20 years ago on a chilly winter day in Ohio. A friend had found her in box, and he knew I needed a new friend after having just lost a kitten due to feline leukemia at the tender age of 9 months. Minxx has been a very important part of my life ever since. She’s been with me everywhere and even today, spends a good portion of the day, by my side in a supporting role. She's been an invaluable inspiration to the work we do every day at P&P. Those who meet her feel her warmth, wisdom, and calm-centered sweetness. It’s been a very long journey of friendship and love with my special Golden Girl!
We hope you’ll join us with your cats and (human) cat friends at The GREAT CATSBY Meow Mingle cat social. Frisky felines on-leash, shy kitties in carriers, and cat friendly people sans pussycat are all welcome on Wednesday March 23 from 6-9pm as we kick-off our first Meow Mingle of 2016 in downtown Los Angeles with our Hostess and Birthday Girl, Minxx.
Enjoy complimentary fizzy sips, tasty nibbles, hit the catnip bar, plus win raffle prizes, kitty swag, and FREE nail trims ($12 value) to all cats in attendance…this will be something worth purring about!

Cat Social FAQs:
Q: What is a Meow Mingle?
Q: Can humans attend the Meow Mingle without their kitty? My cat is shy and not very social.
A: Absolutely! It’s also a celebration of cat owners. We’ll send you home with a kitty swag bag.
Q: Are there catfights? My cat doesn’t get along with other cats.
A: P&P is neutral territory, so there is nothing for your cat to defend. All the sights and smells will get the better of their curiosity, but a catfight is not likely. We advise all cats come in their carriers to minimize stress, so if the mingling is ‘too much’ they will have their own safe space to comfortably observe the action.
