“I love the funny and sweet moments I have with my cats, Jake and Frank, so I was honored to celebrate these moments at the Catdance Film Festival,” said Simone. “It was a spectacular event for the star of the show– shelter cats. They walked the red carpet, took over the silver screen, and tugged at the guests’ heartstrings.”
