Everything’s better with beer, even cats. See for yourself at the third annual Pints & Purrs Fundraiser this Saturday at Boom Island Brewery. In addition to drinking plenty of Belgian-inspired craft beer, you can spend up to seven hours partaking in feline-themed activities. Have your face painted (whiskers, anyone?) by a pro before you strut your stuff in front of cameras on the red carpet. Play cat-themed games, and make “kitty krafts” including cat toys to take home or to donate. The kitten video fashion show will have rescue kittens competing for your donation dollars, while kitten therapy will allow you eight minutes of cuddle time with any number of adoptable, adorable fur balls (reserve online in advance so you don’t get left out). If you’re hungry after all that cat-lovin’ fun, Gastrotruck will be on site to satisfy your appetite. A portion of Boom Island’s taproom sales will benefit Feline Rescue, a St. Paul-based cat rescue organization that provides shelter and veterinary services for cats in need until they find new homes.
