From Internet memes to daily doses of cuteness, cats are a powerful presence across social media, as confirmed by more than 297 million cat-related posts on Instagram. Now Fresh Step is giving cat lovers another reason to snap, share and even adopt these fine felines and it couldn't be more purr-fect.

Marvel at the larger than life cat display. Unleash your inner kitten in the yarn pom-pom room. Practice your "me-owm" in the meditation room to the tune of a cat's purr. Play with adoptable cats from the Humane Society of New York. Get your cameras ready for a truly unique feline view in the feature exhibit: a live Cats on Glass Playhouse.

Visitors are encouraged to come, snap and share cat love with the world throughout the gallery, where an Instagram post and story will trigger a donation to shelter cats at the Humane Society of New York. Participants could receive exclusive items. More details will be available inside at the #CatsOnGlass InstaShop.

"The Cats on Glass Gallery is a visual representation of new Fresh Step Clean Paws low tracking litter that keeps both paws and floors clean," said Lauren May, brand manager, Clorox Pet Products. "By dramatizing the benefits of our new litter, cat lovers can picture themselves with, and even have the chance to adopt, a new cat."

The Cats on Glass Gallery is open daily through Monday, Feb. 19 (President's Day) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It's located at 524 W. 26th St. at 10th Ave., near the High Line. Admission is free, but space is limited. For more information and to RSVP, visit CatsOnGlassGallery.com.

Fresh Step believes what happens in the box, should stay in the box. New Fresh Step Clean Paws features a low-tracking formula to keep both paws and floors clean. It includes a special blend of larger particles designed to stick less to a cat's fur and off the floors. It has the same low-dust formula and odor elimination capabilities as other premium Fresh Step products. New Fresh Step Clean Paws is available in grocery, pet specialty, mass merchandise and drug stores nationwide starting in February 2018.
