Cats of the World Purrzaar 2021


Upon scrolling through TikTok and Facebook, I’ve realised one thing: our social media space is filled with all things cats. From pet challenges to silly antics, the algorithm has spoken: the human population is smitten by these adorable furballs. And for those who can’t get enough, the Cats of The World Purrzaar is returning this April.

Here’s what you can expect at this event happening on 10th and 11th April 2021 at Tyrwhitt Road, near Lavender.

Featuring some of Singapore’s most adorable cats is the annual Instagram cats exhibition, a non-profit community project that has been running since 2007. 30 furry cuties will be shortlisted and have their photos printed out and featured here. Be sure to take note of all their IG handles, to “follow” for a daily dose of cuteness.

Most of us have probably heard the saying “adopt, don’t shop” about a gazillion times by now. For folks ready to welcome a new furbaby to the family, Cats of the World Purrzaar will also host an adoption drive where hopefully, some cats can find a loving new home.
