Thank you for sharing information about this wonderful event. I wanted to attend this event, but changed my mind at the last minute due to concern for my health. I currently have certain problems with men's health and I am undergoing treatment. I read on one of the men's health blogs that pets, especially cats, can cause problems with men's health. I don't know how true this is, but I decided not to risk it and stay at home.
