Hosted at Jewel Bar in Piccadilly Circus, we joined an assortment of cat-related bloggers and industry guests to enjoy lovely views of the iconic London circuit whilst being taught how to mix our own Cat-themed cocktails by an experienced mixologist. We were delighted to catch up with some old friends, the lovely gents behind the Katzenworld blog, Marc-Andre and Iain! Hey guys 😺
Our first attempt was a long cocktail, reminiscent of 'Sex on the Beach.' To add an extra element of challenge, Lauren and Marc had to make this drink with their hands tied together with a magenta feather boa.
We recommend adding some challenge games to your own Cat Cocktail Fundraiser Party, it adds an extra bit of fun to the event, although after a few cocktails, it might get a little messy 🙊
Next came the 'Pawstar Martini:' the challenge now being a race against each other!
Abbie revealed latent cocktail making skills with superspeedy martini production and is now our new Mistress of Martinis 🍸
Don't worry, Tink didn't come to the party with us and we don't recommend having cocktail parties with cats - iCatCare recommend in their fundraising pack that you make sure your feline buddy at home has somewhere quiet they can go while you party on with your friends 😺
We wrapped up the afternoon with a few more cocktail lessons and challenges and conversations with lots of delightful cat lovers from all around London. They say animal lovers are the best kind of people and they're not wrong!
Well why not? If one can have a tea party for cancer research, why not a cocktail party for feline advocacy?
Cat Cocktail Parties are another fun way to get together with friends whilst being a force for good at the same time.
