Tuesday, August 21st

Attention, Pussy Lovers! Every once in a while, an event so magical and wonderful comes along we can hardly stand it. Today it’s the Meow Mix Acatemy (har!), the world’s first workshop dedicated to teaching humans how to think like a cat (duh, all you have to do is read Garfield!). There are all sorts of classes to be had, including one by “Chef Cat Cora,” who will teach you how to make fresh, healthy meals for people “inspired by the foods cats love” (shudder). Plus there’s a guy who calls himself the “Feline Freud” and a class we will be sure to be front and center for, “Understanding Your Cat’s Meow,” by Dr. Alison Abramson. “It’s a deeper look for cat owners into the lives of your pet cats,” said the good doctor. “A lot of humans think cats are small dogs, which they’re not.” Easy there, doc. … She will be discussing lots of important things, including cat obesity (that kitty on Bleecker street, we’re just sayin’ is all!) We’re also interested in what’s going to happen during next Saturday’s lecture, as Carole Wilbourn, self-described “Cat Therapist” and her co-speaker, a guest cat (!) will, “help us understand what our cats are trying so hard to say.” Um: “lasagna.”

[Meow Mix Acatemy, Daryl Roth Theatre, through August 25, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., www.meowmix.com/acatamy]
