The First (and Probably Last) Annual Capital Region Feline Film and Video Festival for Humans at The Spectrum
Because we are a site on the internet we are required to post something about this -- because cats: The [deep breath] First (and Probably Last) Annual Capital Region Feline Film and Video Festival for Humans will be at The Spectrum October 7. As best we can tell, it's pretty much what's on the label.
The fest is the creation of Albany native Mike Keegan, who now lives in San Francisco. He teamed up with film festival veteran Jay Wertzler to produce the First Annual San Francisco Intergalactic Film + Video Feline Festival for Humans this past May. Here's a recap of the event (we won't spoil the stunning twist involving Keegan about 2/3 of the way into the article).
The duo are now taking the show on the road. Keegan reached out to us today because they'd like to include cat videos from the Capital Region in the Spectrum show -- there's info on how to submit videos at that link.
The Spectrum screening starts at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 7.

The Spectrum advertises on AOA.
A few weeks back Welshofer started a video series on her No Teleprompter, No Mercy blog. The latest episode -- about being hungover (not that sort of hangover... we think) -- is embedded above. See also: Kate on Halloween, and Kate on trying to finish last in a 5k.
The clips are goofy. And they kind of create the impression that YNN is actually the fake TV station in a sitcom about a character named Kate. (This would explain so much about AnchorCat Brian.)
So we're waiting for the episode in which Kate mistakenly wears that pink wig from the Halloween episode during a news segment. Hijinks ensue.
At the risk of sounding like a crazy cat lady, I need help finding a groomer for my cat. Newborn baby + slightly neglected long haired cat = a total mess. We had a not so good experience with the vet recommended groomer. I appreciate the help!
We know there are a bunch of places for dog grooming. But cat grooming seems like it's probably harder to find. And it's our understanding that cats can sometimes be challenging when it comes to stuff like this. (Let's not even talk about trying to herd them.)
So, anyone have a suggestion for Jennifer and her cat? Please share!
Earlier on AOA: Ask AOA: Veterinarian care for cats?
I know you've done posts in the past asking for reader suggestions about good haircuts, doctors, etc, and since travel season is coming up, I was wondering if you could do a post about pet sitters?
I definitely don't want to hand the keys to my apartment and the care of my cats over to someone I've randomly picked without recommendation.
We totally understand where Kristin is coming from -- knowing the office dog is well cared for makes one less thing to worry about when traveling.
This might not help Kristin's exact situation because she has cats, but Otto has vacationed at Happy Tails in Altamont. The facilities are nice and the owners were very friendly. They even got one of Otto's favorite toys back to us after we left it behind. As far as we can tell, they don't have a website, but here's a pdf brochure with contact and other info.
Anyone have suggestions for Kristin? Or even some good boarding, pet sitting, or walking experiences that might help other people? Please share!
When a 30 pound cat showed up at the Mohawk and Hudson River Humane Society last week, the inevitable question was: who is this guy? And what has he been doing to get that... rotund?
The answer: livin' large. After the jump, a handful of photos from The Secret Photostream of Flabby Tabby.
