Attention, cat lovers: For a few hours next Tuesday, Minneapolis City Hall will fill up with cats looking for homes.
The event, dubbed “Kitty Hall,” will feature 18 kittens and cats from Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. All will be available for adoption.
As part of the event, Mayor Betsy Hodges will present the feline winners of an election for Minneapolis meow-or and Kitty Council president.
One “cat-idate” lists, as among his campaign promises, “diverting boxes from recycling to an affordable cat housing program.” Another promises to fight for “fully legalizing catnip for recreational use.” Members of the public can check out the cat candidates’ platforms and vote online or at the event.
“Kitty Hall is a perfect opportunity to talk about the awesome work Minneapolis Animal Care and Control does every day,” Hodges said in a statement. “I look forward to welcoming families from throughout the city for this event and I look forward to seeing many of them take home one of the adorable kittens that will be up for adoption.”
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday in the City Hall rotunda.
