Writing on the museum’s blog about the event, organizer Katie Czarniecki Hill says, “I could not be more excited to literally bring this solo cat video viewing behavior out in the open.”

She invited people to “LOL in the presence of others,” and promised that, in addition to the clips that have already made the rounds online, attendees will “discover new favorites in this carefully curated series of cat videos.”
