It's the cat's meow this Friday, March 8, when "Cat Video Fest 2019" begins showing at Sisters Movie House.

The event is a fundraiser for Furry Friends Foundation; 10 percent of tickets sales will be donated to their free spay/neuter program for cats.

Each year, Cat Video Fest curates a compilation reel of the latest, best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and classic Internet powerhouses.

Screening events take place all over the world in a host of venues and raise money for cats in need, often through partnerships with local cat charities, animal welfare organizations, and shelters to identify how best to serve cats in the area. Here in Sisters, distributor Oscilloscope is partnering with Sisters Movie House on the proceeds from admissions of Cat Video Fest to benefit our local Furry Friends Foundation. So come check out some hilarious cat videos and do some good at the same time.

Furry Friends Foundation offers free spay/neuter/vaccination services to Sisters-area families with cats (and dogs), plus maintains two pet supply and food banks. It serves over 100 families monthly and relies on local fundraisers, donations and grants for funding.

Sisters Movie House urges "no pussyfooting around" and encourages animal lovers and film fans to "get on down to Sisters Movie House for this family-friendly showing and support Furry Friends Foundation at the same time."

Dog lovers also welcome.
