A Cat Show for Kids to Cuddle Up To
If you’ve got a 3-year-old who is overly attentive (a euphemism if there ever was one) to the family cat, perhaps Sunday’s Cat Day at the L.A. Children’s Museum will straighten him or her out before the frustrated feline draws blood. Cat Day is a museum-wide celebration of cats that emphasizes how to care for pets.
Joan Harrison will have two helpers--both kittens--to assist in her cat talks in the Louis B. Mayer Performance Space at 11 a.m., noon, 1 and 2 p.m. She will talk about nutrition, discipline, health and games. At 3:30 p.m., there will be a workshop on making safe toys for cats.
At the Workshop Place, children can drop in to make cat masks, whiskers, ears and tails to take home. The workshops are ongoing throughout the day. In the video center, youngsters can step in front of the camera to tell cat stories and then watch an instant replay. In the recording studio, they can learn the words to silly cat songs and tape them.
The museum is at 310 N. Main St. Admission is $4. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information: (213) 687-8801.
