Hundreds Attend Cat Tour in Minneapolis

Thursday, approximately 300 people turned out to walk around Minneapolis’ Wedge neighborhood looking at cats lounging in the windows of apartments and houses.

The third annual Cats of the Wedge Tour was created by John Edwards, founder of the neighborhood news site Wedge LIVE!. The tour winds through the neighborhood, which encompasses the wedge of streets between Hennepin and Lyndale avenues north of West Lake Street and south of West Franklin Avenue.

In previous years, Edwards has just stopped the group whenever they spot a cat. For this year’s tour, however, he invited cat owners to register their cats on the Wedge LIVE! Website and provide a description he could share with the group. Some owners have even started posting signs in their windows that say “cat here,” “welcome cat tour” or simply their cats’ names.

Edwards said the tour has been growing in popularity every year. He was expecting around 150 people to show up, but the tour drew at least double that.

“People seemed really happy,” he said.

The tour will likely be back for a fourth year, around the same time next summer!

    Oh wow! I think this is just so cool. What a lovely way for cat minded people in a neighbourhood to share the love and have some fun, too.
    I wonder if they had treat bowls out for donations?

  2. I’ve emailed this guy, and asked that they do it again next year, when I can plan travel to Minneapolis!
