Tuesday, May 28, 6 - 7 PM, Take Your Cat for a Walk Evening. Dogs get all the fun, but cats like going out, too. If you've ever wondered what it's like to walk a cat, you're in for a treat. If you've ever been concerned about your cat being terrified being on a leash outdoors, you need not worry: Your cat will be in good company with dozens of other cats. We'll meet at Columbia Road and 18th Street and walk around for about an hour. Everyone who has a cat is invited. If you don't have a cat, you're not invited and that's a good thing because this is the weekly fake event.
