Jackson Galaxy's Cat Camp is returning to the city in June with a cat cafe, behavior workshops, feline merch and adoptable friends.

In its third year, the cat-centric conference has a Petco Foundation sponsorship, which means more access to special talks, workshops and panels with stars of the cat world, like cat behaviorist and Animal Planet star of "My Cat From Hell," Jackson Galaxy and Hannah Shaw, a.k.a The Kitten Lady..

Tickets, on sale now at, include presentations covering fostering, rescuing, trap-neuter-return, how to take better photos and videos of your furry friend, how to have a happy cat, and a keynote speech by Galaxy himself, among others.

There will also be "camp counselors" to discuss your questions and the Meow Parlour — the cat cafe on Hester Street — will hold yoga classes so you can practice your cat pose with the originals.

Of course, the convention wouldn't be complete without a section of cat-related merchandise you can peruse and purrr-chase.

About a dozen local adoption organizations will be present for those looking for a new best friend, too.

Last year, 75 cats were adopted and more than $10,000 was raised for the nonprofit groups involved as a result of the cat camp, according to organizers.

Tickets are $20 until Feb. 14. Afterward, they start at $25. The camp is held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea at 125 W. 18th St.
