Before Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub, before LOLCats and YouTube, there was Pudgie Wudgie: a twenty-pound, costume-wearing, performing housecat, who in the 1990s took the world (mostly western Pennsylvania) by storm.

Join us as we celebrate Oakmont’s hometown celebrities, Frank Furko and Pudgie Wudgie, with the local premier of Frank and the Wondercat!

Before the film: Starting at 7PM, Humane Animal Rescue (formerly Animal Rescue League and Western PA Humane Society) will be on site with adoptable cats and kittens, a table of giveaways, and information about the shelter. They’ll even have a basket or two to raffle off to attendees!

After the film: Join Frank in the lobby afterwards for a meet and greet!

Film Synopsis:
Following the rise and fall of this semi-famous feline, FRANK AND THE WONDERCAT charts the funny, emotional and intimate journey that Pudgie took with his owner and trainer Frank Furko. From humble beginnings training in their Pittsburgh living room to NFL tailgate parties, the National Enquirer and The Maury Povich show, this is a portrait of their odyssey together.

Shown through Furko’s homemade VHS archives – footage that is equal parts hilarious, bizarre and beautiful – their relationship was a remarkable testament to the power of inter-species connection.

A documentary by Tony Massil and Pablo Alvarez-Mesa.

Doors open at 7
Film begins at 8.

Full Bar and Food Available.
