Who among us hasn’t smiled at one of those hilarious photos of cats standing or sitting on glass tables and shot from underneath? Well good news – there’s an interactive pop-up exhibit that opens its doors on Feb. 15, 2018 called Cats on Glass Gallery. It’s on for five days only and is presented by Fresh Step® Clean Paws, with proceeds to benefit the Humane Society of New York.
A cadre of cat-loving influencers, including “Kitten Lady” Hannah Shaw, BriAnne Wills of the Instagram handle @GirlsAndTheirCats and cat-lebrity Nala Cat will attend the grand opening to celebrate feline beauty and charm in all shapes, sizes and forms through the lens of creativity and glass. Each room in this unique, visually stunning, interactive, pop-up exhibit features an element of cats and an element of glass, to give future cat owners a chance to literally picture themselves with, and even adopt, a cat.
From Internet memes to daily doses of cuteness, cats are a powerful presence across social media, as confirmed by more than 297 million cat-related posts on Instagram. Now Fresh Step is giving cat lovers another reason to take a photo with and even adopt these fine felines, and it couldn’t be more purr-fect.
Marvel at the larger than life cat display. Unleash your inner kitten in the yarn pom-pom room. Practice your “me-owm” in the meditation room to the tune of a cat’s purr. Play with adoptable cats from the Humane Society of New York. Get your cameras ready for a truly unique feline view in the feature exhibit: a live Cats on Glass Playhouse.

Visitors are encouraged to come, snap and share cat love with the world throughout the gallery, where an Instagram post and story will trigger a donation to shelter cats at the Humane Society of New York. Participants could receive exclusive items.
“You’ll never see cats the same after visiting the Cats on Glass Gallery. To launch the new Fresh Step Clean Paws low tracking litter that helps keep both paws and floors clean, we decided to give cat lovers a whole new perspective on their favorite pet,” said Nick Meyer director of marketing, Clorox Pet Products. “Best of all, the star cats are adoptable, so some visitors can take home their favorite part of the exhibit.”

It opens to the public that evening from 7 – 9 p.m., and will remain open Friday, Feb. 16 – Monday, Feb. 19 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It’s located at 524 W. 26th St. at 10th Ave., near the High Line.

Is the glass half empty or half full? We’re betting on the latter! >^..^<
I’ve never wanted to set foot in NY, but now, I’d love to, to see this.
