We Went to CatCon to Meet the Rulers of the Internet

By Yoonj Kim

The Internet’s obsession with cats came to life full-force at CatCon LA from June 6-7th in Los Angeles. Over 10,000 people attended the expo and symposium, where vendors sold a wide variety of cat-related merchandise, from Pusheen dolls to cat bow ties, and a few celebrity cats were in attendance.

Playboy correspondent Yoonj Kim talked to the biggest names in the business about what it takes to make your cat internet famous: Lil’ Bub and his owner Mike Bridavsky, Pudge the Cat’s owner Kady Lone, Will Braden of Henri, Le Chat Noir, Scott Stulen of the Internet Cat Video Festival and Cats of Instagram’s Eli Omidi.
