Time to whip out the ball of yarn and sharpen those claws. Locals are getting all Cat Fancy with the city’s first ever Somerville Copy Cat Festival slotted for 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17 at the Center for the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Ave.


“Our feline extravaganza will feature not only cat videos—produced locally and globally—but also cat stories, cat limericks and a slideshow of local cats,” explains organizers at the Somerville Arts Council. “Emcee will be Jef Czekaj, who will kick off the event by reading his book Cat Secrets for cat-crazy kids. There will also be a cat costume table and most likely an appearance from a famous local cat.”
Hello kitty? Locals can claw their way into the contest by applying by Friday, Feb. 1 here. Yes, your feline oughta be in pictures.
